CFS and appendix removal

Hi,

I suffer with CFS/ME and have for about 20 years. Fortunately, I only suffer with mild to mid conditions but some days I feel like death warmed up:-(

I have question though......does anyone on here that suffers with CFS/ME STILL have their appendix?

Thanks.

Justin

Hiya - I had my appendix removed in Feb 2011 and my gallbladder removed in April 2011. My M.E was diagnosed in 2013 ..... do you think there is a link between M.E and having had appendix removed? Xx

We have never really known what the appendix does/did...so it was just an idea that came to me years ago when I was "trying" to understand why I had CFS.

Yes many I know have. Having CFS does not increase your risk of appendicitis!

Appendix removed about 35 years ago. cfs symptoms started 2 years ago. If there's a link, it can be slow to happen!
