Customer Question
Hi. I am...

Hi. I am a male, 57 years old. Good physical shape but I have discomfort (not pain) in lower right quadrant. What could it be. Note: doesn't hurt after exercising. More when I wake up.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

About 2 months. Not sure. Doesnt hurt to touch. Feels like a pull

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. Im in very good shape and exercise as well as eat right.

Hi, I am Dr. Pennington. I am a surgeon.

Are you up to date on colonoscopy? Have you ever had a hernia?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I had a recent colonoscopy and resents were negative. Had a hernia when I was young after a hockey game. But, that is it.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago

OK, if you are up to date on those two, it probably is musculoskeletal in nature.

If there are any urinary symptoms, enlarged prostate, etc then that would need to be checked out as well.

Bravo for choosing a healthy life style! Any thing else I can do for you?

It's strange as there no little pain. Only a pulling type of feeling when I sit down for extended periods of time.

Have you ever had surgery that would produce an adhesion on the inside, like appendectomy?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
