Be careful. Lilgr8white may come on here and call you a poosay because she had her appendix removed and it broke while it was being removed, thusly spilling the contents into her stomach cavity. this would have resulted in sepsis which was then mistreated, causing a life threatening situation wherein she had to have her liver removed and replaced due to toxic shock.

My wife had her appendix removed before I ever met her and from what I know it was no big deal. Good luck!

overall, it's not the surgery but coming out of the drugs. if you're a real wheeler you'll won't ask the doc "how long before sex?" you'll ask "how long before i can bounce on the trails?" GOOD LUCK

I had it done when I was about 13... bad stomach ache for 24 hours that wonr go away... went in and when they removed it they said it burst ont he table after they got it out... I lucked out.

It hurts liek hell when you wake up and for about a week after. breathing will hurt, coughing will be agonizing, sneezing... well... you'll hopefully not find out for yourself...

all in all, it's not too bad. Get well soon! Best of luck!

Its not really a "real" surgery. They'll have some intern work on you.

I was a rush job. Snuck up on me in a matter of hours while I was working at the bar in college. Drove myself to the hospital around 4am in the CJ (girlfriend at the time could not drive a manual ) once I realized something was definately not right and they had me on the table before dawn.

I didn't think it was so bad afterwards, though. I started walking the hallway (all hunched over) as soon as they thought the stitches wouldn't tear. I was in a big hurry to leave the hospital because I was told that a very large woman that also worked at my bar was scheduled to work later that week and she would be the one to give me my sponge bath if I was still there.

I had mine removed last August. If it has not burst and they do it laproscopicly(sp?), when you only have a couple small cuts. Then it is no big deal until the air that is still trapped in your abdomen starts to move around and finds its way to your shoulders. That hurts like a MFer and the only thing you can do is move around and try and break the bubbles up. But the recovery at the inscision site was not a big deal at all. I had my surgery at 2AM and was released just after noon when I could eat something. Good luck

I hear they'll surprise buttsecks you once you fall asleep..

Then when you complain it's sore, they can point the cause of pain to your appendix.
