Appendicitis

I was diagnosed with appendicitis last week, stayed in hospital for a spell with drip. Had severe vomiting and nausea, terrible pain on right. Tests showed infection but not appendicitis. Doctor said if this happens again, I should contact him immediately. Today all the nausea, no vomiting, started again with a dull ache in right side as with last time. Can inflammation cause these symptoms.

Dear Nausea
Call your doctor - the only way they will be able to see is to take a blood test to check if your White blood cell count is high. Did they check for Urine tract infection and kidney stones too?

They do not always pick up all conditions on sonar, etc. I had a ruptured appendix caused by bilharzia for 2.5 years. Like Anxious said, it is no joke! I suggest that you make an appointment with a Specialist and if you are not certain of their diagnosis, always go for a second opinion. Last but not least, trust your instincts....you know your body best than any one else - so if something is not right, make sure it is attended to. I wish you all the best.

Phone your doc to be on the safe side. Believe me you DONT want to end up with a ruptured appendix! That is NO joke. Because he said immediately, you also have justification to phone him after hours if your have a/h contact details for him. He would be more than understanding. If you are at all concerned, contact him.
