I had been operated for appendicitis about 7 years ago. Soon after 2/3 years, constipation started. Last year I was diaganosed with stones in both the kidneys now doctor says are gone after treatment.
Now I have lost digestion completely. There is consistent pain on the lower right of abdomen, which happens to be the area of surgery for appendicitis. Pain is at the place of surgery as well as below that as well i.e. seems to be inside the large intestine and around. I have lost digestion means there is no digestion at all and passage of stools do not happen unless I take medicines. Also, it is all fudgy and seems to contain some mucus kind of thing. CT scan of abdomen and pelvis conducted on 25th july says no significant abnormality found. Currently I am taking Tab Tropix, Tab Cintapro, Tab Lafaxid, Tab Remepen.
I am not experiencing wt loss, fever, nausea, visible blood in stools etc. But I have lost bowel movements completely.

I have been having pain on both sides of my pelvic area where the ovaries are. I always had extremely heavy periods. The pain started about 2 or 3 months ago maybe more. I was with my ex at the time, and he ejaculated in me. But I never got pregnant. I had got to periods during the time we were trying. I went to the hospital for appendicitis in March, and when the doctor was doing the surgery he told me that my left ovary looked like something was wrong with it but he did not know what. So long story short all they did was a ultrasound and said everything looked fine. These are the same people who did the ultrasound of my appendix and said everything was fine, but when I got a cat scan they rushed to immediate surgery. I am with my current boyfriend and we have been trying for 1. Month to get me pregnant and nothing. Also I meant to mention at first it was pain in the left and now both. What could this be? Also I m 18 years old if that helps

I have had a rumbling appendix for the last 20 years , for the last 10 days the pain was more intense but i didn't think it warranted a visit to the ER, however the pain has eased a little, but still "grabbing" and i have a burning sensation in that area and if i push on the area it makes me wretch I have had scans and a laproscope for other medical reasons and they told me if i get appendicitis to inform DR's that my appendix is not to be found, either tucked under my bowel or colon..should i be worried that it could have already burst?

For 3 days now my stomach has been hurting really bad on the lower right side. It hurts when i move or take a deep breath or if i press on it. The pain is sort of crampy and sort of sharp. Advill or motrin helps a little but it only lasts for a few hours then the pain comes back. Sometimes it hurts so bad that i double over and have to lay down. i dont have any other symptoms. I looked up the symptoms of appendicitis and the only one that i have is the pain on the lower right side. So could i still have it? Do you have any advice or answers? Thank You.
