you seem to feel just like i did 2 weeks after i had my appendix removed,3 weeks ago, i was finally in so much pain i went to the hospital and discovered i had a bad infection, one very large abscess and many small ones, my surgeon had seen me just 2 days earlier and thought nothing when i told him how much pain i was in, if you think something isn't right get a second opinion, and don't wait, it'll only get worse....

I have this really bad pain in my lower right side and it wont go away. It keeps me up at night. I dont feel sick or anything, I feel like I'm cramping but this is 10 times worse. Could this be appendicitis?
