Appendicitis should be ruled out to be on safe side.
Hello and thank you for choosing "Ask a Doctor" service for your query,
Have seen your details and I appreciate your concerns,
Your pain is in area called Right hypogastrium.
Most common case if hypogastric pain is caused due to appendix.
So appendicitis should be ruled out with priority.
I would suggest you to go for ultrasound of lower abdomen to rule appendicitis.
Follow up with ultrasound report please.
Thank you and regards.
Ct abdomen should be done ideally as some time due to appendix position it
Thank you for follow up,
Ultrasound is not a perfect test to rule out appendicitis.
The view of appendix depends on the position of appendix anatomically in patient plus various other factor like technician skill,View window etc.
As pain is still there gold standard test CT scan of the abdomen should be done
How are your bowel moments have you noticed any loose or mucus like stools?
Any medication suggested by your primary consultant.
Two things I would suggest as pain is in Right lower quadrant-
1)CT scan abdomen
2)Stool test - Routine and culture to see if bacterias are there in fecal matter or not.
And what medicines have been prescribed by your doctor as off now.
Waiting for reply.
Instead of just waiting for 3 weeks as I told you earlier start taking any over the counter good probiotic.
May be in 3 weeks your problem solves by itself as explained in question earlier.
