My 22 year old daughter has been experiencing pain in her lower, right abdomen for years. It comes every once in a while so she was never seen for it, but when it does show up, it really hurts her. She thinks it may be her appendix gradually reaching the point of someday bursting. Could this be true?

Hello doctor, My wife is suffering from abdominal pain from past month or so. it started with pain where the navel is and then it pains to the right side and sometimes on left. she has recently complained of sudden burst of pain at times. we have done all possible tests like blood, urine, sonography, Barium meal test, CT scan. In barium meal test it said appendix is not visualized but other tests showed nothing. is it APPENDICTIS? or what else can be the cause of pain??

Hi, I have lower abdominal pain . My doctor suspected it to be Appendicitis . They have asked to take a CT Scan and confirm the level. Is operation the only way to cure this or there are any other means. I am 22, Unmarried. I have got this pain only very recently for 2 months. I am scared to get operated. Can any one suggest me what should I do now?
