hello welcome to HCM,
as per the symptoms and history you have given ,
Its not the appendicitis pain, as you have told , you met with an road traffic accident , the abdominal pain is propably associated with the RTA..

appendicitis is a acute pain abdomen condition , in which you will get severe pain in the Rt.iliac fossa , you will have fever and vomiting associated with pain you need not to worry about your pain ..
hope the answer will help u..........

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum. Pain in the right side of abdomen could of many reasons as if in the upper abdomen of gastric or hepatic origin, if in the middle and radiating to the lower abdomen it may be of renal origin so could be renal stone or urinary tract infection, if only in the lower abdomen may be appendicitis, T.B.intestine, or in the lower abdomen and coming upto the middle means cystitis.(lower u.t.i).
So i advise you to consult a surgeon for diagnosis and treatment. as already 3 days passed it is not appendicitis. More chances ore for u.t.i. only. you may need to have C.T.scan besides other routine tests for confermation.
Don't worry you will be fine with medicines only, no surgery is required , and thanks for calling.

Thanks for posting your query,
Pain is a warning sign. Yet with right side abdominal pain it is often a confusing one. While a severe, sudden case of lower right abdominal pain is a well-known symptom of appendicitis, in reality, abdominal pain has several causes, from mild to serious.
visi your doctor and plan your treatment under his/her guidance
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful
