My appendix ruptured last month treated inpatient w. Antibiotics 12 days sent home, surgery consult in 2 days and stomach pains came back lastnight really bad
I have never in my whole nursing career heard of not removing the appendix, just putting you on antibiotics. Why didn't they remove the appendix then? You may have formed an abscess or something. Good thing you have a surgical consult soon.
This sounds like science fiction.. Ruptured? Left in? Huh?
