Appendicitis sucks...
« on: October 21, 2016, 12:49:45 AM »
Just got home from a four-day tour of the local hospital courtesy of acute appendicitis. Surgery went fine, and I'm slowly recovering from the abuse my body has been put through over the last week.

As much fun as that was, ( ::) ) hopefully it'll be the last major chunk of time I spend in a hospital for the next few decades!  ;D

Did you save it in a jar of alcohol?

Formaldehyde would be a much better preservative.  ::) ;) ;D

Glad you pulled through ya trooper.  The good thing about appendectomies is once it's done, it's DONE!

I've been told by medical people that it's one of the most painful things you can go through, other than childbirth. It certainly was very painful to me, when mine was taken out a few years ago.

I bet you have some exercises to do, and that thing you have to blow into. Do them. The thing with the pillow really works. And don't be shy about taking your painkillers.

Those who haven't been through it won't know how it makes just about any activity painful. Get well soon! And keep us posted on your progress, please.

Well, the incisions are knitting together nicely. Got up today and it didn't hurt to twist or anything. Didn't even need Advil. Intestines are still rebooting, which is quite annoying. Otherwise, all good news.

Side note: I've found that, when pain crosses a certain threshold, I stop sneezing, even in mid sneeze. Whoda thunk? XD
