I am having pain in the lower right corner under waist line. I am not sure what it is but I do not know what to do. I already had my gallbladder taken out so I was thinking it was my appendix but I am not to sure what the pain is. I was thinking if you could tell me what you think since you`re a person that can help with the body problems that I am having.
Pain in the right lower quadrant of the abdomen could be coming from the appendix, though typically that progresses relatively quickly into an emergent situation. There are a number of causes for pain in that region including but not limited to hernia or genital organs. An evaluation by a physician is warranted.
