What are the common causes of abdominal pain ? Can this pain be due to UTI or kidney stones and how is it treated ?

my mother had her appendix and gall bladder out years ago, she is having the same exact kind of pain like she had when she had her appedix out, is it possible for someone to get repeat appedicitis? Im thinking it could possibly be Kidney stones or a UTI.. tylenol and a hot bath relieved the pain for a couple hours. On a scale of 1 - 10 (10 being severe) she is about a 5 after a bath.. but its been 2 hours and they pain is back in full force.. so shes about an 8 now.. should she go to the ER or wait to see her doctor in 12 hours?

Hi,thanks for query.Once appendix is removed ,obviously this can not happen again.the pain could as per you guess might be of renal or ureter stone.At times adhesion(the intestine get stuck to each other) in that area can also lead to this.If she is comfortable then you can wait,if the pain is severe and not responding to conventional analgesic that you have you need to take her to ER for pain relief.Ultrasound is required to have final diagnosis.
wishing her good health.
