Well I haven't been on, so after this thread I'm gonna see how my babe Misa Campo did in the Babe Contest thing.

Anyways, on Thursday after school my mom picked me up. and we had, had food at school. I felt like I had overeaten, which if you know me is uncommon and does not surprise. My mom wanted to go to Costco. I asked her if we could just go home (I didn't mention anything about not feeling well cause then she always freaks out and it's annoying) but she said she had to get stuff for blah blah blah and gave me excuses that of course she thought were valid (:lulz:). I got home and tried to go the bathroom after this shopping spree of sorts. I went, felt a bit of relief, but I still didn't feel my best.

I went to sleep.

At 1am on Friday morning I woke up in severe pain and curled over in bed. I went to the bathroom after awhile and started vomiting out green bile. My mom came down stairs and asked what was up. I just told her I felt sick and was throwing up, told her not to worry about it and just told her to go back to bed. I got about 2 hours of "sleep" that night (or morning).

Friday wasn't that tough of a day. I had some nausea but nothing to extreme.

The next day, Saturday, I had pain all day, but nothing out of the ordinary. I assumed I was just getting the stomach flu and everything. I watched T.V. and tried laying down on the couch hoping it would dull the pain. It only got worse. Around 8pm the pain started becoming unbearable and I starting moaning and rolling over on the floor for a couple hours and denied that I be taken to the doctor. My dad said go to the pharmacy, which I denied. Eventually my parents called the doctor and the doctor said my Apendix was bound, if not already, burst. 9:30pm I submitted and I went into the car and my mom drove me to the hospital. We got there 20 minutes later and it was a painful ride to say the least.

I staggered in the door expressing the pain I had (via screaming and holding my stomach) while hoping they would show some mercy and take me in right away. The lady that logs in your info was a total bitch and showed no sympathy and refused to move me up in the line despite it being obvious that my condition was much more serious than the people patiently twidling their thumbs in the waiting room. We talked to somebody else though, and they had me in, in 15 minutes... Which seemed alot longer and I still think was unacceptable.

Anyways, they got me into a hospital bed and they said to wait for the doctor. I begged for morphine for about 10 minutes until they finally stuck the I.V. in me and administered the morphine. In about a minute I stopped yelling and was tired and felt fine. They drew some blood and the doctor finally came and told us the situation and they wouldn't know anything 'til they took a CT scan but he said I likely had a burst or ready-to-burst Apendix. They took me away 10 minutes later or so and I got my CT scan and went back to the area in my hospital bed and waited for the results. He said it was for sure my Apendix but they couldn't tell if it had burst yet or not and they wouldn't know until they got in there (the Apendix doesn't just explode like a grenade, it "leaks" so you couldn't really tell).

They rolled me away a few minutes later and put a mask on me and stuff after introducing my parents to the surgeons and putting me in one of those revealing hospital gowns that I rigged up to make it alot less revealing :lulz:. Before I knew it I was in and out of surgery and felt alot better. Of course after having stomach surgery you feel alot pain and it really sucks. It's all out, he told me it burst and I spent a few days, up until about 3pm today, in a hospital room. It was boring.

I still get some sharp and very painful waves of pain in my stomach and such. Oh well, I can walk (sorta) and talk. Hurts alot to laugh though :(, I almost died watching the Simpsons today. No sports for 3 weeks :bawl:.

Oh well. Catch up on some homework and do my extra credit assignments I guess and just play alot of video games.

Well that's all. Any advice would also be appreciated. :cya:

1. Get time machine 2. Go back in time 3. Kill old self 4. ??? 5. Profit!!

:lookaround: Now, since this thread isn't in Spam I guess I have to give a 'normal' answer.

While having surgery for anything has gotta suck, at least your no longer in horrible pain. Just obey the doctors orders and be glad your babe won

Yea I saw, she did.

And I still get very bad pain waves, but it's manageable I guess. They gave me some Vicadin so it's all good. PAR-TAY TIME... Uhh, I mean... They're good for pain.

Ouch like a b*tch, that sucks that it burst and had to cause that much pain, if you get it out beforehand, it probably wouldn't have been as bad - I think the vomiting up green bile would have been an indication.

Good luck healing, at least you won't have to go through that again.

Surely at the "vomiting green bile" bit you'd think that maybe something wasn't quite right...? I have no idea why people are so reluctant to go see a physician when something goes wrong.

Well I had taken like 4 big ass pills that were a dark green about an hour earlier to help with "irregularity" so I assumed they had stained the stuff inside me. Come to find out, the doctor said that wasn't the case. :uhm:

I think pain can be analogized to those big wailing sirens with matching lights that spin round and round that you see in the Evil Genius type facilities in the movies when the heroes start bashing stuff. When they decide to turn on, it generally means something is wrong, and that is the same with pain. The more severe the pain, the (usually) more severe the problem. Resist the pain long enough, and the problem can become permanent. I don't know whether this is some kind of bizarre masculine ritual or something, but waiting until you literally cannot stand up before getting a medical professional to look at you is not such a good idea.

You want to know whats funny?

If we get obama-care, your "unacceptable 15 minute wait time" will turn into hours.

Just something to think about.

Try doing sit-ups and sniffing Nitrous oxide.
