Glad to hear that he is doing well. I still remember mine from 35 years ago. I counted every floor tile and brick in the wall while walking and walking (hunched over the first day or so).

Just to let you know that my son came home this morning! He is feeling much better - just finding it hard to walk too far! The surgeon has said he will be fit enough to go to Switzerland as planned with the Scouts in 2 weeks time. This means we get 10 days of peace!!!!

Hope by now your son is doing well recuperating from his appendectomy. Apparently rupture is more common in children and older people. I read that appendicitis is most common in those age 10-30, and more common in males than females.

Our son (age 30) also just had his appendix out (laparascopic, and appendix was not ruptured), but he unfortunately developed an infection and ended up spending a week in hospital. This was 2 weeks after he got married in Maine, and the day after a second reception held by his in-laws where they live (west of Chicago); we ended up spending 2 days in the hospital with him and his wonderful new wife -- heck of a way to start ones' married life! He joked that his appendix decided it didn't wan to be married, so jumped ship.

Hope all goes well for you with the rescheduled CT.

Something like this never happens during the day it seems like. I hope the surgery went well and he will be on the mend soon. For what it's worth my 93 year old Mother had a ruptured appendix in 1956 and has done quite well since then. I hope you are getting some rest now. Julie

Thanks for your support. The surgeon has just been round. They want to operate in the next hour or two as they are worried it might be ruptured. Because of this they cannot risk doing it laporoscapaly. He will have a scar to match mine! (I had my appendix out many years ago).

Sorry to hear that Anne. We just had a girl on the team have her appendix out. The surgery took 12 min total. Of course the 14 hours they made her wait before the surgery sucked. She had to stay in hospital 2 days. Hope he feels better soon.
