Hi everyone. I had an appendectomy through keyhole surgery last Wednesday and have been recuperating well. However just now in bed I turned sharply and felt a "pop" where my appendix used to be. I am concerned that I may have caused some form of internal damage - popping stitches or something like that. There was a brief, very brief, flash of pain, but now there is no pain there at all.
Lower right side pain, but don't have a appendix since 5 yrs ago
Hi I have a question it was like maybe 5 years ago that they removed my appendix, but today when I woke up my right side, in the lower of my stomach hurts pretty bad, when I walk when I'm just sitting down. Do you know what could this be causing the pain because I don't have my appendix no more..
