May still be apendix: Pain in RLQ concerning for appendicitis, ectopic pregnancy & ovarian torsion. A simple pregnancy test rules out ectopic. CT us usually the tool for appendicitis. Did they use oral and IC contrast? (Oral is chalky stuff you drink, IV makes you feel hot all over). If contrast given, appendicitis less likely.. Lymph nodes likely "mesenteric adenitis", which is OK. if worsens, go back to doc ...Read more

Infection: The swollen lymph node is a good indicator of infection. If you got antobiotics from the sutgeon the day of your surgery and have been taking them then they may not be effective. If not then call them and ask for a prescription. Either way this problem needs to be addressed asap. ...Read more
