I have a constant pain in lower right abdomen. I am 61 years old with no history of bowel problems. The pain reminds me of a time when I was having a dye test and the doctor had to move through some scar tissue in my groin left from a previous test to insert the catheter. It can go from dull to throbbing. Does anyone know what this might be?
This is really a question for your doctor as lower abdominal pain can be caused by several conditions. It could be any number of things, including problems related to the scar tissue you mention in your question. If it's causing you this much pain, it's time to let a healthcare professional run the necessary tests.
