Question: lower right abdominal pain

 kenneth - Wed Sep 22, 2004 9:57 am

for over a week I have been having worsening lower right quadrant abdominal pain. I have had my appendix removed, so it cant be that, but the pain is right below that scar. I have no fever, nausea, vomiting. I have had increase in urination, sometimes painful. One doctor said sesame seed size kidney stone, but urologist doesn't think so because pain is so severe and long lasting. no penile discharge either - have had only one sexual partner for over a year. first urine showed some blood, but week later clean urine. Please help.

User avatar Hi kenneth,
Since the pain is beneathe your appendectomy scar, you may want to consider adhesions. They can be quite painful. Ask your doctor if this is something that he/she has considered. Since you are having increased urination along with discomfort, and blood, at the very least an urinalysis to check for an infection (UTI) along with a 24 hour urine to assess kidney fuction is certainly in order.
