    Congrats on a successful surgery! Might wanna hold off on the porn for now. Well, unless you're paying for a paysite for benevolent reasons, just to do your part to help keep the industry running. That's always a good excuse. icon_biggrin.gif

    Fuck I'm sorry! I hear about these stories from time to time how it starts off as a "stomach cramp" but it gets exponentially worse and you're like "oh shit surgery NOW or die."

    How did you realize you needed surgery? How long did the pain ensue until you realized you needed to go to the hospital?

    My best friend went to the doctor with a stomach area pain. The doctor couldn't find anything wrong, but he put him in the hospital and had his appendix removed, just in case.
    Sheesh.

    Not saying that your appendectomy wasn't necessary.
    Just sayin'.

    Hope your doing well.

    Happened to me and I woke up to find myself shaved. I didn't like that part.

    Be sure you really understand AND have written down the post-op directions when you go home. Recovery takes a while. It can be hard to remember instructions when using those nice drugs.

    Get well soon!

    My dear Sporty! Get well, OK?

    Let me tell you about my own appendectomy, back in 1963. I had felt bad for a day, with a pain in the middle of my stomach. But on the evening of the second day I just collapsed. My parents took to the ER.

    A nurse said I probably had just swallowed some chewing gum and had a belly ache, and to take me home. My mother, who was someone you didn't mess with, said I never complained unless I was truly in pain, and to have a doctor see me without delay. You did not argue with my mother. She saved my life.

    The doctor had me taken into the operating room. I was later told as they made the incision in my abdomen, my appendix burst in front of them. Fortunately they were able to prevent me from becoming septic.

    I was in the hospital for nearly a week afterwards. But that was the way things were done nearly 50 years ago. Not the quick in-and-out we have today in the US.

    But anyway, glad your own appendectomy has gone well, and you can be in touch with us from your hospital bel, I presume. How different from my own experience....

    Get well soon... Catheters suck, but it is a relief to just be able to go when you want to..LOL.

    After my surgery in March 2009. I had them keep it in even when I was in recovery and until about 6am the next morning.

    Because, I knew my abdominal muscles were going to be very sore after surgery and would not be able to release the necessary muscles to pee.

    This I learned from my appendix nearly rupturing back in 1992. I had it out in December 1992. It was what they called 'waffled'. Like someone took a waffle iron on it and it was starting to push its contents back into the intestine and I would get very sick from it and then it would pass. They called it a re-occuring appedicitis. I would be hospitalized for 2 days each time (3x in total), as my white bloodcell count would go up and fight the infection, and then clear it out, and then the next day they would run more tests and my white count would be back down. It was very strange to them.

    Then in December 1992, the surgeon said, we are going to remove it because we think that is what is causing the problem.

    I have had 'ghost' pains in the area on rare occasions. Nothing painful, just a twinge but I know it's gone.

    I try to get off the pain meds as soon as I can because they do nasty things to my intestinal tract.

    Speedy recovery!

    My dearest Gary: I look forward to your full recovery, which I have no doubt will happen.

    A little anecdote about my own emergency appendectomy in 1963:

    They took me into a prep room, and this guy came in and said he had to shave the incision area.

    He lathered up a shaving brush in one of these old-fashioned cups, and literally flicked wads of soap down onto my lower stomach and dick.

    Then he took a classic straight-blade razor (I kid you not!) and started to shave my stomach. And he took off all my pubes, right to the base of my dick. I had only grown them barely a year or so earlier, and wasn't happy to lose them.

    Afterwards I itched like crazy for a couple of months as my pubes grew back. But they were coarse then, I guess because I was young. Today that's not a problem when I shave down there, so I hope you are spared that discomfort.
