General Surgeon 's  Response
The pain in the abdomen was not due to appendix as its removal did not result in relief.
Tonsils are present in the mouth.
Pain abdomen can be due to other causes like ovarian pathology,infection of gut,multiple mesentric lymphnodes etc.
She can go for Diagnostic laparoscopy as her abdominal contents can be viewed by key hole method.
Apart from antibiotics,antispasmodic like dicyclomine should be added.
Wish her good health and speedy recovery
