Pain around pelvic region and belly. Blood test shows appendicitis. Taken antibiotic. Stomach getting bigger

I have persistent pain around my pelvic region and around the belly for a week now. I went to my doctor 3days ago with complaint and he decided to remove my mirena . I went back the next day with the same pain (and more sensitive tummy) and he sent me to hospital thinking I have appendicitis . The hospital doctor took urine and blood samples off me and said my blood count is normal but the other test says I have some infection and he said it could be appendicitis. He gave a 2sets of antibiotics and sent me home. Now, after 2 days, since I went to the hospital, I think the pain has gone down a bit but I have noticed that my tummy is getting bigger (it s normally flat in the mornings but now it s even higher than my chest- I m female by the way 36D). Help please.

General Surgeon 's  Response
hello dear
abdominal pain and distension goes in favour of subacute intestinal obstruction provided you do not have constipation. you may need erect abdominal X-RAY and ultrasound abdomen to rule out this. USG abdomen will also find out appendicitis. after getting the report its better to consult GI surgeon for further managemant. hope this answer is helpful to you.
take care
