About 10 days ago I started having really sharp pains (sort've crampy) in my lower abdomen (right above pubic area and also felt in rear) that seems to occur sporatically. It doesn't seem to be caused or relieved by eating, going to the bathroom, etc.
After it happened for 4-5 days I went to the ER, and after a stool test, blood tests, CT scan and X-rays it was determined I appeared (via CT scan) to have Appendicitis, although it was dubbed "acute" (I guess in that it hadn't bursted yet), and I had my Appendix removed that day (Wednesday around midnight last week) via the laproscopic (spelling aside) procedure.
I went home late on Thursday, and I have been noticing some (early in the AM, sporatically during the day if at all, and before bed) the same type of sharp (cramp like) pains in the same areas. If I'm laying down, I can feel some pain over towards the right near where I'd envision my appendix is/was, but mainly it just makes me "tighten up" down there when it hits, and it seems to go away on its own. Sometime it lasts a minute, other times it stretches near an hour.
I'm not having any problems going to the bathroom regularly, and I'm having no pain when I actually go. I haven't noticed anything irregular (blood) in my urine or stool that would make me panic, however, the fact I'm still having similar pains as pre-surgery has me a nervous wreck.
Thank you in advance for any/all help, and I appreciate taking the time to read this at a minimum. I hope I'm not the only person who has, or is, going through this...
