Hello,

Apart from appendix which can cause pain on right side of abdomen may be gall bladder pain or pain coming from the right kidney.

Though gall bladder disease is uncommon, Gastric, Pancreatic, kidney causes may be there.
You can give her antacid to see whether pain relieves or not. Omeprazole or Ranitidine may also be tried.

She needs an ultrasonography to find out any cause. If nothing can be detected in ultrasonography, she may need endoscopy, and blood tests for liver and pancreatic enzymes.
As pain is persisting, you should contact her doctor for further investigations to find out the cause.

I hope this will help. If you need clarifications, please ask.
