Mine was attached to my bladder somehow… So when it became inflamed they had a hard time diagnosing appendicitis… my pain was central, not one sided, and they couldn’t get a good scan of it behind the bladder. The gastroent. said it was fairly common.

Did they take out your appendix? If they did, hopefully it will help with yor pain.

You can get adhesions or scar tissue almost anywhere in the abdomen. The most common cause is previous surgery, but they can be caused by other things including appendicitis and infections.

@ButtercupBetty:  

I’m not sure if it was attached prior to infection. I assume it was. The infection was acute. I had centralized pain in the evening, went to work on nights anyways… I had surgery within 24 hours of the onset of pain/vomiting. True story, this happened on Dec 23rd, I had surgery xmas eve. bahaha. Good times. If you’re still having problems it could be a good idea to seek a second opinion.

@ButtercupBetty:  mine was attached to my bowel. The doctor freed it up, and I noticed the difference immediately – needing a bowel movement at the exact same time every day. Apparently adhesions tend to recurr, and I assume this is true for me as I now go a week with no Bridesmaid or Best Man. Not sure why it happens really, but like you, I get soreness in the lower right (and left), which could be ovulation pains??
