Bummer...

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. :(

  4. I vote for going in at least to check it out. My husband suffered at home for about 12 hours before we even thought about appendicitis and took him into the ER. But someone at work here just had their's rupture a few months ago. I hope it works for you and that you get well soon!

  8. Go get it checked out! I stayed at home until mine ruptured and I almost bit the dust. And recovery from a ruptured appendix is a lot longer than a simple appendectomy. Please take care and let us know, OK?
