In brief: Many possibilities
These symptoms could be caused by a kidney stone or kidney infection.
Of course your doctor already considered appendicitis. An ovarian cyst could also cause these symptoms. Get your urine checked for blood. If there is blood present, then a ct scan of the kidneys, ureters, and bladder should be done.

In brief: Right sided pain
Lower right side pain with nausea raises question of appendicitis, possible diverticulitis, possible gallbladder disease (although this is usually upper r side); pain in back/hip aggravated by sneezing raises question of herniated lumbar disc, which can radiate pain to r lower side, buttocks, hip, or groin.
Excessive urination usually a sign of diabetes, which does not fit here.

In brief: Doctors want updates
Thanks for telling us more.
Most physicians want and need to know if pain persists or symptoms worsen for a patient. Calling is always acceptable in such situations. The interest in this case by ht doctors should confirm that :).

In brief: Ultrasound
A key thing to know about your ultrasound is that unless they saw the appendix and it was normal, they can't exclude appendicitis.
Not all referring physicians are aware of this and it happens frequently. Several of your symptoms are suspicious for appendicitis. Some go more for a urinary tract problem. In either case, you should get the answer asap.
