I have been having pain in my lower right side for about 6 months. Around that time, I began having heartburn too which could be totally unrelated. I have had an endoscopy, upper GI, gall bladder scan, colonoscopy, and a CT. The CT showed swelling in the small intestine but the coloscopy was normal. The GI encouraged me to see the Gyn to rule out any of that.
I had an ultrasound of the ovaries which showed a cyst on the left side. The gyn seemed to think I may have endometriosis so I had surgery for that. Turns out, I had minor endometriosis on the left side & it was taken care of. She thought she saw that my appendix was swollen so I had that removed next.
Turns out the appendix was normal but I had an adhesion so my cecum had adhered to the abdominal wall. 3 weeks post-op, I am still in pain on the lower right side. The pain used to be pretty dull but has gotten sharper. I do not know what to do next. Anyone have suggestions?
