Let’s flashback to this date last year…on October 6, 2017 I was hospitalized because my appendix had burst. It was a very serious (and very painful) situation. The doctor said it was too dangerous for them to operate and was told that we’d likely do that in 6-8 weeks when it would be safe. After waiting 6-8 weeks, the doctor says my appendix is gone. That it must have burst off and dissolved because is wasn’t showing up in countless CT scans.
Flash forward to early this summer when I was still in discomfort. Something that felt tight and like a heavy balloon in my body had me very worried. I saw a few doctors and they said that I still do very much indeed have my appendix, and they wanted me to get it removed. They also found an endometrioma (from my endometriosis) that they would remove since it was sitting next to my appendix.
