Our expert says:
Usually when you have appendicitis, your white blood cell count will be high. It may however be chronic low grade appendicitis, or even gallstones with gall bladder inflammation. I would also do a sonar of the kidney on that side to exclude kidney disease with your history of recurring UTI's. Your colon should also be examined if no other cause for the pain could be found, preferably with a colonoscopy under anaesthetic. If you feel that you can't wait for the GE, ask your Doctor to identify another one in your area that can help you quicker.
