See below: There are a number of possibilities that might account for your pain which include: adhesions (most common); incisional hernia or neuroma; or intrabdominal pathology affecting right ovary (eg cysts) or bowel (eg Meckel’s diverticulum). Given its chronic, intermittent nature, likely nothing serious. CT imaging may provide answers.
