Chalk another one up!
Yeah, it hurts like a bitch don't it? Anyone else?
They didn't give you any drugs? You should be/get higher than Akuma right now(not sure if that's actually possible but you get the idea).
That sucks! Good thing your better now.
I have a shitload of tylenol 2 that I can take for pain...
Appendicitis sucks. Mine burst and i almost died. Sickest ive ever been i think. Glad to see ur better<><>
Wow dude, forget about me, im glad you're better! I know it's real dangerous if it bursts, but I caught mine early so I didn't have to go through the trouble of cleaning the infection.
It's so ironic that it's a simple operation, is very avoidable, and can happen to anybody, but it can be real lethal.
I forget.... Do they have any idea what causes it?
Its still not 100% undestood but its normally the result of a obstruction or a ulceration. Bacteria can also be a cause. Either way they all lead to the same outcome being the appendix is inflamed and infected and if it bursts it would spill into the abdominal cavity. From there it just gets worst.
But glad to see your feeling better Kav, I had my Appendix out when I was a young, close to having mine rupture as well. Painful experience. Still you get the 'cool' scar.
my cuz had his taken out cause it had gotten infected and he had been throwing up for like 3 days straight with little to no sleep
when they took him in they said that if it had reptured he prob would had died, i was kinda laughing cause i would have gone in after a day and half of throwing up lol
This happened to me. I thought it was a stomach virus at first but I just couldn't stop throwing up so we went to the hospital. Was in surgery the next morning.
I have a phobia of doctors/hospitals. Idk if I would go to the hospital in time.
It's caused by bacteria particles being trapped inside it, after a while it inflammed. Appendicitis is strange because you get mixed symptoms, so doctors gotta ask alot of questions and do tons of tests to pinpoint the problem.
But I was in the Emergency waiting room for like 5 hours befor ethey finally took my blood, and an hour later they took me in and did an Ultrasound. Basically I went to the hospital at around 11 am, the surgery was at 10:30 pm, and I was out an hour or so later.
How much did it cost?
I don't know.
Normally when you get your first one out your second one is free
Ugh, yeah it's quite the experience. I have crohn's disease so when I got appendicitis they thought it was just the crohn's acting up, and so they let it go far too long. Pretty much one of the worst pains ever. Just a curl up in a ball grinding your teeth because there's nothing you can do about it sort of pain. Glad to hear everyone made it through their experience (mostly) unscathed.
Crohn's... isn't that the disease where you get awful cramps, pains, and flares? If so, I feel for you.
Kav gald to hear you're back up and running mate.
@ Reikall, docs thought I had Crohns too. Turned out to be ulcerative colitis. Ruptured colon in 1998 nearly killed me. 4 operations later and I'm good as gold. Hope you've got yours under control.
