ultrasound to get an early diagnosis

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query and an elucidate history of pain in the lower right side of abdomen referred sometimes to the back.
Commonest reasons are :
Ureteric obstruction
Retrocecal appendicitis
I would advise you the following :
Ultrasonography of the abdomen
CT scan to confirm the findings
Tests of blood, urine and stool.

Once the diagnosis is made, treatment can be planned well and effectively.

Please give further information :
- since when have you the pain?
- is it spasmodic, dull -character of pain?
-associated symptoms like nausea, vomiting, bloating or change in bowel habits?


I would be happy to see the reports. Please feel free to ask further relevant query if you need to or if you feel that there is a gap of communication.
