I have belly pain in lower right abdomen. It started around belly button & then moved. I'm sick to my stomache, bloated, constipated & direaha?

Appendicitis: Evaluating abdominal pain is like solving a mystery. There are usually many different possibilities, which can be narrowed down by asking the right questions, doing a careful examination, performing simple blood tests+/- radiology tests. Constant rlq abdominal pain needs to be approached as "appendicitis until proven otherwise" due to the risks of no treatment. Please see a doctor asap.

I'm constipated belly pain above the belly button sweet vagina smell?

I'm constipated belly pain above the belly button sweet vagina smell?

Fix it: If you have pain from constipation, fix the pain. You can try an enema, milk of magnesia, miralax (polyethylene glycol). Most important to fixing constipation, however, is to drink more fluids and eat more fiber. I'm not sure what you were referring to by sweet vagina smell. The vagina shouldn't really smell... If it does, then you could have a bacterial infection and that is something nurse or doctor can help you w.

You: You are describing pain where people with appendicitis localize their symptoms. If you were seen early on in the process, a ct and blood count could both miss the diagnosis. Since you posted your question 3 days ago, I assume things have gotten worse if you have appendicitis. Sometimes the appendix is located posteriorly behind the cecum and a ruptured appendix seals off creating an abscess. Patients with retrocecal appendicitis are often difficult to diagnose and the diagnosis is missed on the initial evaluation. If you are still having pain, you need to be re-evaluated. If examination is suggestive of a surgical abdomen, you should have exploratory surgery regardless of the ct results. Physicians have become too dependent on imaging results and surgeons may wait too long to go in, resulting in a more complicated post surgical course and more morbidity.

Uncertain: If your ct scan showed a colon leak after the colostomy take down surgery, you would need to see your surgeon to determine the clinical significance of the x-ray findings. Some degree of pain can be post-operative healing, but a chronic low low grade infection could cause pain too. Not all radiology findings are always meaningful, but also should not ignore until you are seen by your surgeon.
