It really could be a number of things. Appendicitis is always a possibility when you have abdominal pain lasting for more than 4 or 5 hours. I would just give your clinic a call and ask to speak to a nurse to determine if you should go in or not.

They won’t give you surgery if you aren’t well enough to go through anesthesia.  I’d have it checked out asap so if it’s something simple you can get on the meds to deal with it to be able to get your surgery.

@erinleigh1: Not sure where you are, but is there a phone in sort of health care you can use? In Ontario we have Telehealth where you can call (for free) and speak to a registred nurse describing the issue, symptoms, etc and they’ll give you advice or tell you when you need to go to the hospital and what else to watch for.

I’m a nurse, and I would recommend calling triage hotline if you have one in your state (Canada has them, where I work). You explain your symptoms to a nurse on the line, and they can recommend if they think it warrants a visit to the physcian or to the ER.Or as another poster suggested, call a clinic and ask to speak to a nurse.

Abdominal pain is difficult to diagnose, and a common cause of ER visits. I don’t provide medical advice over an internet forum, so I would call the clinic or a triage hotline, if you state has one. Be sure to mention your upcoming surgery – perhaps the two aren’t as unrelated as you might think?
