What a weekend!

Well, maybe I should have gone to Monaco! As all y'all know, I had my appendix taken out today. The pain I'd had last weekend turned out to be acute appendicitis, which they found on yesterdays CT scan. My onc called at 4 in the afternoon and wanted to see me ASAP to get examined and to speed up the hospital check. The scan also showed that I had gall stones, so when I spoke with the surgeon we agreed that he'd take out the gall bladder as well.

Eight this morning, they ran me in, snip snip snip and back up to my room, minus a couple of parts. The doc said that if I wanted, I could come home today so I did. I'll have to take it easy for the next few weeks, but I've been doing that since September anyway.

Home already? Wow...have to assume that all was done laproscopically.

You sure do know how to have a fun filled weekend!

So very glad that the doc was on the ball and got you taken care of quickly.

Take care of you...and no jaunting off to foreign parts until you are all mended.

Hugs,

Marie who loves kitties

What a fun weekend you are having. We can't get a break. I guess you didn't need that appendix. Pray you are up and running around soon. Jeff

Glad to hear that all went well. Really was a speedy process. Good thing it was caught on the CT. I hear a burst appendix can cause a whole new set of problems. Rest up and take care.

Luv,

Wolfen

We all get so focused on cancer we sometimes fail to remember there are many other ways of getting ill. Pleased you got it all sorted.

Amazed at How many parts can one person get chopped out and still keep going sometimes!

In another post Doc It would have been easy to pull the pin anytime in the past 14 years but I really am curious as to how many bits they can lop off or otherwise stop working before we stop working. I've lost the gall but I still have the appendix. My kidneys are not so good at the moment and are trying to drown me with pulmonary Oedema.The diuretics are not pumping me out fast enough. Going to bed has become a real adventure,being unable to absorb oxygen results in some extraordinary dreams. Hoping you are feeling a bit better soon. Wouldn't it be wonderful to actually wake up one morning and think gee I feel good, ah well I guess we live the life we have. Ron.

Glad that they found out what was going on with you and fixed you up. Glad that you are home and hope that your recovery is fast and complete. Thanks for the update.

at least there's nothing boring about your life! You'd probably take boring occasionally! Here's hoping this recovery goes well. Dan

Sheesh, you've been having issues for some time now, hopefully this is what all that crap you've been enduring was all about huh?? Maybe this non cancer related stuff gone will have you feeling much better.
