Hi, I had my appendix out 1 month ago, I am still getting a persisting pain, been back to the doctor's and they said I need another two weeks off work, he felt my stomach where the pain was and I almost cried with pain, he said he was puzzled with why I was still feeling pain and said if the pain hurts when doing something 'don't do it', now does anyone know when I will feel better? Iam getting bored of not being able to do anything, I want to get back to work and back to competing horses. Any ideas anyone?

Hope it wasn't done in Florida. Hate to say it, but it doesn't seem any doctor/surgeon knows what they are doing. After an appendix ruptures, nothing for 24 hrs. - then small water, clear liquids, and light solid foods. Activates after a wk., should be light walks and lifting, driving, showers,etc. But sorry to say, medical staff in Florida do NOT seem competent!

My daughter had appendectomy 3 days ago and is doing pretty well. It was laproscopic and has 3 tiny incisions, one on her belly button and two more about 2 inches under. It was an emergency surgery and was sent home without follow up instructions, she has appointment to see the doctor in 3 weeks. They left small pieces of tape covering her wounds. And she now wants me to remove the tape and clean the wounds. What do ya think?
