High temp, fever, vomiting, cramping still 12 weeks after removal of burst appendix

Posted , 3 users are following.

So my mum had a burst appendix and it was a mess inside her. This was in January. She was misdiagnosed by 5 doctors until we refused to bring her home from a & e. They did some tests and realised so rushed to surgery and fully opened her up as key hole wasn't an option.

After she then picked up a super bug and her scar became infected. Lots of antibiotics later she is over that.

March 13th we had to rush her to hostpital again as she had pain near belly button, along with vomiting, fever so feeling really cold along with high temperature also cramping in stomach which she described as similar to contractions. When the cramping comes she would literally scream it's so bad. Morphine is the only thing that stops the pain.

April 24th and the exact same thing again and she was taken in to hostpital again, I forgot to add that she had xrays, blood tests and a ct scan. I forgot to add the cramping is like a sharp knife inside her.

Nothing showed up.

We are now paying privately for a MRI scan as we don't know what else to do?

Anyone have the same as this or know what is wrong with her?

Please help.
