For 3 weeks I've had this constant sharp pain in the lower right side of the abdomen. It has flared up very severely 3 times and I've needed to go to a&e. The pain becomes so bad, I just faint. In a&e, the blood tests and scans are all normal and there are no signs of an inflammation/infection anywhere. They did however find blood in the urine. The only pain relief that seems to work is morphine as I am allergic to other pain relief (ibuprofen, codeine, tramadol and aspirin).
Doctors don't want to do anymore tests and can't seem to find out cause of the pain.
However, they do have a few theories as to what it could be:
- stump appendicitis
- burst ovarian cyst
- adhesion pain from previous laparoscopy operations
They say the last resort is doing another laparoscopy - which I am trying to avoid.
I don't want to keep going to a&e to get some morphine and possibly getting an addiction to it. It's really frustrating and I don't know what to do!
I've been referred to a gynae clinic, but even then that could take weeks! What do I do in the mean time - keep passing out from the pain!
Past medical history:
- ovarian cyst removed through laparoscopy
- appendicitis (appendix removed)
- stomach ulcer
- kidney and lung infection, leading to sepsis
- small kidney stone
