There is pain in right lower abdomen (sometimes upper right, upper left, middle and lower left too) since May this year. Ultrasound and CT screening report showed Chronic appendicities since the radiologist would have that the symtoms persisted for a month at that time. That is symtoms started in may and scan was taken in june. It showed appenidcololith and size 7mm. I have studied in the net that less than 6mm and 7mm is ok. No wbc or Crp or ESR elevation either at the time of starting of symptoms and till now I have repeated these tests every month and all was normal. The GI now wants to do CT with contrast that to not an urgent as he feels a thickening in the cecal area of the abdomen while palpating. I have mild pain while pressing in the right iliac fossa (right lower abdomen going on for months) some time no pain while pressing. The pain comes while sitting or in certain positions or squatting or turning in the bed. A few times it was appreciable and sometimes it is very mild (like cramping, pinching or stabbing) but comes and goes. Whenever it comes moderately i panic that I should run to the ER immediately that it is acute (reacting like a anxious person) and seen immediately. But it disappears and appears and this state goes on for the past six months. One GP said ignore the pain and concentrate on something. What I fear is what if it turns acute and I if I ignore it will it burst?. No fever, or vomiting or lack of appetitie.
