Question: severe right sided pain

 nursypoo62 - Fri Jul 22, 2005 3:12 pm


My daughter is 15yrs old. She has been experience severe rigth sided pain. She was hospitalzed over night with this. Her first white count was 15, twelve hours later and a liter of ns it was 11 CT said ovary was ok and the surgeon r/o appendicitis. By the morning her WBC was 7 and they d/c'd her. In 4 days with the pain back with went to our GP who dx is as an abd muscle pain, rx celebrex. This and some skelaxin seemed to cure it until now, about 4 days later. She is in alot of pain, nausea and vomiting yellow, which also accompanied the prior episodes. I guess we will try prompt care next but I can't help but be skeptical. Please help!

Have kidney troubles been ruled out, like renal colicks due to stones or UTI?
Any fever? Any discolouration of urine or stools? Is she passing stools and gas regularly?

Hi thanks for responding. Went to prompt care on Friday, urine dipstick was fine but he went ahead and treated for kidney infection-bactrim, ultram, and phenergan. they called sunday and urine culture negative. She is feeling better though. I have my fingers crossed! Stools have been fine.
