i wonder if anyone can help me... i was in hospital 8 weeks ago with a suspeted appendicitas! they thought it was appendix so they did a lapascopic appendisectomy! well that all went well untill i woke up and still had the pain. The doctor said it could just be pain from the operation so i thought ok. He said it was only mildly inflammed. I had quite a bad reaction to the annathesic so i was in hospital for a week, i went home and i still had the pain and the diarrhea and occasionally sick. I've been back and forward to the doctors but they just put it down to the operation still. I started to have a really big fever and being sick and diarrhea again last weekend so my mum took me into hospital and i had to stay in for the weekend on a drip and medication anway they let me home and they said it was just a bug. This was untill i had to go back to the doctors two days ago with severe pain and mucus in my diarrhea and a little bit of blood. My gp addmitted me to the hospital and they said they can't do anything and that i will just have to wait untill i have blood tests and some other tests done. could someone please please give me some advice on what to do or what this could be im only 15!:confused:

  • Hi milz, the thing with appendicitis is that many times doctors will remove it when there is a suspicion of infection, not because there clearly is one. It's an issue of better safe than sorry. I think you should post your symptoms in the "I Can Not Get a Diagnosis. Please Help" board.
