I've been experiencing right sided mid quadrant pain for 18 months. The pain is like a sharp stabbing pain and can last from 5 minutes to a whole day/night. This pain is also accompanied with a crampy pain in my rectum or similar area (not sure what's up there!). My periods have become very heavy although regular as clockwork and I suffer from bloating, changing bowel habits etc.
Numerous investigations have been carried out, a CT scan revealed I had appendicitis and a mass inside my cecum. During subsequent colonoscopy the mass was prodded and it burst, it contained a stack of puss so the mass was removed and was later found to be my appendix which had intussuscepted. Pathology confirmed there was nothing "dangerous" going on there, no cancer or endometriosis so it was unexplained as to why this happened. CT also revealed that I had kidney stones. Further tests were done and it was discovered that my right kidney was very small, scarred and only working 11%, it also contained numerous small stones. So it was suggested that this may be the cause of my pain, my kidney was removed 6 weeks ago laparascopicaly and surprise surprise the pain is still there.
I'm not sure where to go from here...I'm beginning to think my doctors think I'm faking it!!! I'm in such pain, tired all the time and generally feeling run down and losing interest in everything. I had my son 6 years ago and believe C=section resulted in my womb/uterus being torn badly. Could I have scar tissue etc this high up?
If anyone can give me any ideas of where to go from here I'd be so grateful. I'm at my wits end, how many more bits are they going to cut out of me before they find the source of this pain?
Thank you in advance.
