    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).

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
