I hade and emergency appendectomy August of 2000 and lately my right side has been hurting.Today it's hurting whenever I laugh or even bend. What do you think is the reason, could it be a "phantom pain"?
I had an appendectomy about four months ago, my appendix had become infected and my body built scar tissue around it. The pain kept reoccuring and I kept being missdiagnossed. Finnally, an MRI showed a large mass (which turned out to be the scar tissue around the appendix). The Dr. said that this was rare. Anyway, I am still having some concerning pains in my lower right and left quadrants. I was wondering if any one else had expirenced any post surgery pains of this sort or should I go back to the Dr?
