Im a 20 year old male, i had my appendix removed a few years ago, but once in awhile my stumach area will have pain that comes and goes, it may last for a few hours our a few days but then go away for a few days and come back randomly. I dont have to go to the bathroom when it happens but sometimes i will to see if it helps relieve any of the pain, sometimes it seems to help, but i dont have bowel movements that often in general ( i can have a day or two go by without having to go, pain or no pain)
