Usually pain docs just treat the pain and don't diagnose where it's coming from.  It's possible you have scar tissue in the area of the appendix surgery that is causing the problem.  Sad thing about adhesions is that they don't show up on tests.  It takes another surgery to both diagnose their presence and to cut them down.

sounds like you may have adhesions.
I too had surgery on my appendix and regularly experience them.
I searched for a cure/pain relief for almost 2 years with no avail but I have now found a solution which works for me.
My doctor has prescribed co-dyramol and this seems to be able to numb the pain (unlike other painkillers, which did not provide any relief) so perhaps it is worth looking into.
I hope this helps!

Sorry Dibenrezz,

This thread is two years old. I doubt the poster is still active. If you would like to reach them you can try their profile page.

Thanks for adding your information.
