Anyone ever have appendicitis?

What were your symptoms? Im having a slight pain right under my right rib cage when I breath in deeply, its not really a bad pain just more of an annoyance. Don't have time to go to the doctors today

Had that pain after I worked out and had the same thought. I just strained something and it went away after a couple days.

From what I hear appendicitis is more severe

it would not be a "slight" pain.

my summer job after high school was to lay brick at a high-rise construction. worked all day lifting heavy shit... somewhere around 3pm or so got shit really sharp pain in my side. it was unbearable. finished my day, got to my house in a public transportation and passed out right as i walked though the door. no one was home, so i laid there on a floor for a couple of hours.

my mom gets home from work and sends me to the emergency room. by the time i got there i was all shades of green and blue. they looked at me and sent me into the surgery right away. apparently my appendix had raptured and i would've died within and hour or two if i did not have a surgery ASAP.

basically they had to pull all my guts out, wash them in a pan and shove them back in. not a pleasant experience. to add insult to injury, they infected me with Hep. B (not the scary Hep. C), so i had to spend 3 weeks in a hospital for that shit too.

That sounds very unpleasant. Yeah its really not unbearable just hurts when I breath in also, was your pain consistent?

I have had it before, and had it removed. It was an incredible amount of pain that was constant and lasted what seemed like forever. If you are just having slight pains, and it's sporadic, I would think it's something else..

Holy shit! Glad your mom showed up.
I had a friend who had the same thing happen to him during some training we were doing lifting heavy stuff. He was my buddy during this training and was starting to fall behind. I thought he was just being weak until he started to cry and then passed out! He said it felt like he was being stabbed repeatedly.

To the OP... it seems like you would know right away if something was up.
Never hurts to see the doc though!

It will become horribly unbearable and you will basically be curled up in a ball on the ground about to cry. If that occurs, I suggest heading to the ER.

right beneath your right rib cage is your liver and gallbladder. sounds like you may have cholecystitis (inflammed gallbladder) from your description. it can go away on its own, but if it recurs, go to the hospital.

Depends how it malfunctions. If it bursts, you will feel it and as others have pointed out, it's gonna hurt like a motherfucker.

Mine didn't burst. It perforated and slowly leaked all throughout my abdominal cavity or whatever. For ten days, I had bearable pain and started to get fevers which grew worse every day and were worse at night. By the tenth day, I was straight delirious by the time the sun went down and the pain was too much for me to go out snowboarding that day so we finally decided to go to the hospital. On New Years Eve no less. We were up by Verbier in the Alps and it was a long drive to Sion, so that's why we put it off so long.

Anyway, they ran some tests and the next morning a mannish nurse walked in with a razor saying my appendix had ruptured and I was going to need surgery. I woke up to the worst pain in my life and was quarantined to my own room, apparently because the infection had spread all over the place throughout my abdomen and stuff.... The incision was 10 inches long and I had a drain sticking out. I couldn't walk for 7 days afterwards and was laid up for 10 before being released. The doctor told me I was lucky and the extent of the infection was what he would have considered an extreme case for sure and I probably would have died if I had waited longer.

And I missed NYE, we were going to hang out with some hot ass Swiss chicks. Fucking sucked.

You should have it check out just in case. I had slight pains, kinda like you describe, for months. At some point it became actually shitty, had it removed next day in fear of rupture. Look at it this way: Without complications, removal of the appendix is a mundane procedure that will take only a few days to recover from. In case it ruptures, you do start facing some real chances of not making it.

My pain went away also, until I had some Mexican food, and then the pain came back. The pain then didn't go away, and I wound up having surgery that same night, and released the next morning.

God Luck.

Yeah, don't sweat it. You'll know.

Had mine removed in upper Michigan while on vacation. Got a nice 6" scar for my troubles. Stepped out of the hospital and started the drive back to Tampa. Lovely trip.
