Right side pain after appendectomy
I'm 18 years old. 3 years ago I had my appendix removed. 4 weeks after the surgery, I started getting pain in my right side in the area where the appendix was. 3 years and multiple doctors later, the pain is worse than ever. It's not a matter of when I get it, it's when it's not as bad. I have it all the time. Severe stabbing and cramping pain. I can't go to school 3 out 5 days a week. It's unbearable. Vicodin, etc doesn't touch it. No painkillers do. One doctor now says scar tissue that's cramping my abdomen and told me to take fiber. A pain management doctor is treating me for nerve entrapment from the surgery. I had one shot in the nerve a month ago that took the pain away for 5 days. The next shot did nothing. Anyone else go through this?
