Thank you for your question and I am sorry you have been dealing with this pain. So we can be clear, you said that this pain is coming from your right side? Is this YOUR right side or if someone is looking at you right side.

There are several things on YOUR right side that may be causing the issue (appendix, gallbladder, etc.) .

Secondly, bruised ribs usually take 3-4 weeks to heal. Some things that you can do to help relieve the pain would be: use ice packs, avoid any physical activity, do not let others hug you since this may cause further bruising and just relax, give yourself time to heal.

I am glad to hear that you are going to the OBGYN for a follow up as there are so many things that can be causing your pain. Please keep us updated or give us more information so we may try and better answer your question.
