I have been experiencing right-side pain radiating between my ribcage and hip, since February 2013. More recently I have had bouts of constipation (3-4 days) as well. I have had 1 x-ray, 2 ct's, 1 cystoscopy and an ultrasound. The dr has ruled out stones, appendicitis, ovarian cyst and IC. the pain is intermittent through out the day, every day but gets worse if I eat or drink ANYTHING. I see the Dr. again next Friday but I'm wondering if I should suggest a colonoscopy. I had one done 2 years ago before a hysterectomy and they found 2 benign polyps and removed them (at age 32). I only just though of this yesterday. My Dr. is ready to go forward with surgery to remove my appendix (just in case) and take a look around while he is in there. Im not adverse to surgery but does anyone think I should investigate a possible colon issue first. 33 yr old female - although not physically active, I am not overweight either.
