18 months ago I had a massive hematoma following a hysterectomy. The CT scan also showed early appendicitis except I had my appendix removed 30 years ago! Since then I have had lower right quadrant pain that has gotten progressively worse. It is present constantly now. I also have extreme fatigue, sweats, and feel like I am coming down with the flu, although my temp is normal. I have made the round of doctors and blood work shows chronic low neutrophils and high lymphocytes. I was referred to a GI doctor who performed a CT scan that again showed something in the area of the appendix that was interpreted as an appendicolith. I had a colonoscopy yesterday but it was completely normal-no masses or appendix. The doctor did not give me any advice other than to return to my family doctor. I need help finding out what is wrong and what the CT scan is really showing.
