I had my appendix out in August and am getting sharp pains…

Customer Question
I had my appendix...

I had my appendix out in August and am getting sharp pains in the same area, not sure if it’s still the internal scarring healing as the op wasn’t straight forward at the time

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

On and off since op but I’ve just returned to work. It is a desk job sitting but maybe it’s that, it’s better if I lie flat

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I was fit and healthy until this, they thought I had diverticulitis on the first op, then after 10 days realised it was a misdiagnosed and was a burst appendix

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
