Dr. did the same to me, one reason was to make sure I didn't have blood in the stool (GI bleed). 2nd to push towards my side to see if I felt pain from the inside, which I didn't. I did feelpain when he would press down on my lower right side but not when he would let go. I was in his office less than 5 minutes and he told me to go to the ER immediately and to tell them I need to get checked for appendicitis. Went to the ER they did blood work, my WBC were really high so they cancelled my CT scan and took me straight to the OR.
