Damn - I never thought I'd be the one to have to get my appendix taken out! The shit just came out of nowhere! They did it Laparoscopically. Monday - 11am - Just started getting lower abdominal pains. Thought it was my Ucler. 4:30pm - Had to have my mom drive me to work (Server at a Diner). 5:30 - Begged to get sent home. Mom wanted to take me to the ER on the way back. I refused. 7:30pm - Asked to be taken the ER. After CT scan, they told me they were taking my appendix out. I don't know why, but I was kind of excited. No comment on why... Today - 2:15 PM - Ouch! This shit hurts down there! I could only imagine how I would feel if I had gotten traditional surgery. Anyone else ever have their appendix removed via laparoscopic surgery? And what was your recovery time?
