I am a 23 year old female and I had gallbladder surgery about two months ago where they also took out my appendix. I just started to workout again and I am experiencing lower abdominal pain just on the right side. This is mostly when I raise my hands over my head and am doing pushups or some other strength exercise. I do not think this is serious...maybe just a strain but I just want to be sure.

It may be a muscle strain. It may also be some pain from the incisional scars that are now being stretched a bit. It may also be some "normal" aches and pains from starting a new workout regimen.
If it gets worse or does not get better (even slowly) then it is probably a good idea to have it checked out.
