Karlos the Jackal
So stomach pain is not at all unusual for me, although the probiotics I take seem to help a lot. My stomach pain usually takes the from of relatively short-lived cramping, and was worst during my teen years.
My stomach pain on Monday night did not ring any particular alarm bells until it became clear that it was steadily in rising in intensity. I went to the ER at around 5 or 6 that morning, and went into surgery at 2 pm the next day, at which point my appendix literally exploded, covering the doctors and walls in the the operating room with bright yellow slime.
(I assume appendices are bright yellow. I might be thinking of Cliffs Notes.)
