burning pain in abdomen after biopsy of right rectus muscle

I had several CT scans and MRI done of a mass found in my right rectus muscle.  I have had two children in the past 3 1/2 yrs. before that a laproscopic surgery to remove endometriosis on tubes and before that gastric bypass.  I ended up having a biopsy of the right rectus muscle where this mass was.  They had to enter on the left and go in on an angle to retrieve biopsy.  I was told it was desmoid fibromatosis.  When leaving they just said to rest for 24 hrs. O-k did that and was taking pain medicine.  I was not told not to lift anything.  Well I have a 2 yr old and 3 yr old and am a stay at home mom.  I'm on week 3 as of today since the biopsy.  Am now on just tylenol and motrin alternating every 3 hrs so 6 hours between each same medication. Well I have a burning sensation rated about a 5 on a 0-10. Before the biopsy it was about a 2 constantly.  Called the Dr. and they said they may want to do a CT to check for internal bleeding.  They did not get back to me today if that was the COA.  Anyways, I'm concerned because when I cough, pass gas or have a BM it hurts more.  The burning is constant and starts from the illiac bone area to almost mid center of abdomen.  I know the appendix is in that general area.  Is it possible that either the fibromatosis has attached to the appenix or possibly they nicked it when doing the biopsy?  I don't know exactly how large the tumor is.  Through the skin it feels about an egg size.  Should I be concerned about a possible appendix issue?  When should I go to emergency if needed?  How would I explain to emergency technicians about the mass.  Even my doctors don't want to open me up until they do a colonoscopy.  I'm quite nervous as I have two toddlers that need their mommy.  Any help or insight would be appreciated.  
Thank You
