    or however you spell it.

    I've had a bad stomach ache and head ache since friday night...

    and since sunday, i have been asleep most of the time. i'vebeen at the hospital since nine last night..... i have had a burger, and a bowl of cereal in the last 4 days.

    I took some barium at 5 am.... that is radio active stuff that will make me show up on the cat scan better....

    it is most likely appendisitis, but it might just be gastritis, but apparently i act the way the text book says appi patients act.... You could say that i am a bit of an appendix on the sickness. (Atleast i tried :bawl: )

    So, it is going on 10... i was supposed to have the scan at 7...


    they need to hurry...

    That sucks.
    My neighbors 9 yr old son just had his out last Friday. Saturday night he was home sitting up playing video games.
    Not trying to minimize what's going on with you but as far as these things go it's pretty managable.
    Keep us posted, HAHAHA get it? Posted?
     
  4. I had mine out 3 years ago. I spent 3 days in the hospital and a week out of school. Since i was still under 18 at the time i had to stay in the pediatric wing and while i was there i found they had a nintendo 64 so i ended up playing mario kart all the damn time :D
     
  5. Hope everything goes well for you...

    I've had appendicitis twice, but both times they were mild cases that only gave me what they call "Lower Right Quadrant Pain" for a day or two. So luckily, I haven't had to go under the knife for it yet....

    mine burst... and holy poo! they say its close to havin babies pain. i was in reform school and they woudn't let me go to the doctor, like i was fakin it or something (whole other story) anyway, i spent 3days at the bottom of the shower puking non stop e.g. liquid-foam-blood (in that order). long story short, they got me to a doctor and he said "another 3-6hrs and i would have been no more :eek: " sooooo, two weeks in the hospital and as much demrol (sp?) as i wanted :D ... fun fun! not to mention a very cute nurse! (ahhh to be young again) two days out of the hospital i was on my snowboard back in full effect. the only lasting effect was my inability to use caps :meh: .

    but i can't stress enough how bad it hurt. mind you i have broken many bones even have screws in some parts but the appendix (sp?) took the cake! ouch... good luck :bassist:

    Get better. That just sounds painful and I'm going to hope my appendix is built to last.
     
  16. Same here on both parts.

    Yeah and when someone askes how you got it you can tell them, it was painful, but I'm standing and the one that caused me the pain...is no more. Hell well your at it ask for the doctor to give you one on your face, maybe over the eye and then you could wear an eye patch and act like a pirate. And when some one says "Hey your not a pirate!" You just yell "AARRRGG" and point to your eye patch with your dagger that you could carry around legally because your a pirate :D

    they shaved me! and took my appendix. why? because i probably had a viral infection.

    meh. oh well.


    surgery went fine... i went it at 4 pm yesterday... was out at like 530.... slept like a new born on crack....


    so, all in all... i feel better. i should be home tommorow.
