Woke up this morning with a sharp knife-like pain in my lower right abdomen. Went into work, but the pain was bothering me quite a bit and my co-workers talked me into heading off to urgent care.
I'm back home at the moment on a clear fluids diet with instructions for what sypmtoms indicate a trip to ER would be prudent. It seems I may have appendicitis. I am not happy about this at all.
I've done a little research online since coming home. While it is entirely possible for this to work itself out without surgery, it doesn't look very probable. I wonder if I just ought to head over to ER there right now and get it over with rather than try this clear liquids thing. While I definately don't want to spend the day at the hospital or have surgery if I don't need to, I also don't want to waste time hoping this will get better on its own and end up in a really bad situation.
Anyway, if I go MIA for a few days, you'll know what happened. :(
