For the past couple of days I've been having pain in the lower right quadrant of my abdomen, lower right of my back and my right leg. The pain comes and goes but when it strikes in its severe. I've already had an appendectomy so it can't be that. I'm under a gynaecologist for an ovarian cyst on the right side but an ultrasound last week showed that its gone. I have no idea what could be causing the pain now, I also have a very small appetite, nausea, dizziness and weakness. I'd be very grateful for any comments.

Hello! Welcome on eHealth forum and hope you find a satisfactory answer to your query!

First you need to rule out pregnancy. Then you need to rule out nerve compression in lower back. Third possibility is pelvic inflammatory disease. If everything else is ruled out, then pain can be due to adhesions in the abdomen following surgery. Hope this helps. Take care!
