See gastroenterology: Appendectomy, even with complications, such as scar tissue leading to obstruction or development of an abscess does not usually result in symptoms that you describe. You need to make sure that there was truly appendicitis. Alternatives include inflammatory bowel disease or infectious causes, such as atypical mycobacterial infection. See a GI doctor for further testing.
