So this is insane.
On October 10th, I had some abdominal pains and had another CT scan. Went to my primary care doc to look at it. Said I was all good, including my appendix. So yeah, you read that right.
Fast forward to Monday 11/11 - my wife drove me to the ER (different hospital) as I was on death's doorstep. Honestly, I have a high pain threshold, but this stuff...I was literally crying and couldn't breath. It was bad.
Emergency appendectomy #2 performed. This time the doc took a picture of it in his hands and said it looked in tact except for the perforation at the base which was leaking and poisoning me. He told my wife it was really awful in there. He found a staple that was used to close up whatever the original surgeon took out, but that it was nowhere near where my appendix was. Apparently, I cheated death twice now. So, I have had a total of 3 CT scans and they all show an appendix, look exactly the same in all three, so that first surgeon, I have no clue what he was looking at or doing. This recent surgeon has no clue either, but says that I am going to be just fine now.
I am at home recovering now, thankful to be able to post on the VR.
Ok..I was NOT home-schooled, but that is neither hear nor their.
