Fluids: Drink prune juice and water, stay well hydrated. If the pain worsens or is associated with fever/vomiting, please see the urgent care center for testing. Exclude appendicitis if the symptom is worsening. Early appendicitis may have very few symptoms. Monitor your temperature and report fever to your PCP.
