hi all, sorry this is completely offtopic but im at a bit of a loss and wondering whether anyone else had had similar problems.
I had an open appendicectomy (the old kind with a big scar) in early december and since then have had the odd twinge but nothing major. Last Thursday i got severe pains in the exact place that my appendix used to be, making me double over etc. I saw the nurse anyway on friday so i mentioned it to her who said it could be a hernia, infection of a ""stump"" left behind or scar tissue attaching to part of my bowel and to see a doctor as soon as poss.
I saw the doc today who simply said ""i dont know"" which seems to be a bit of a theme at this surgery recently, and said it might just be a virus?? (i have no other symptoms apart from the pain) and to come back in a week if it doesnt get better.
This has been like this nearly a week now and im lost as to what to do. It feels like the same pain i had when i had appendicitis and is as painful if not more!
