I'm hoping someone can help me or advise further, I had my appendix removed, via keyhole surgery on the 16th July. The pain was horrible! I even nearly passed out which has never happened before, no pain relief was touching the pain, even down to IV morphine. However they did mention possible ovarian cysts. Also in my urine sample it came back with "blood present!"
After having the surgery I was admitted back in on the 22nd July for Five days as the incision in my belly button was infected (however this didn't show up on my bloods) I was treated for pain, and given antibiotics. I was in this time checked for fluid, gas still remaining and I was given a Ultrasound, X-ray and CT which I was told all were perfectly clear (please keep that in mind)
I have recently got back to hospital because I am still in agony! I have pain in my right side where my appendix was, radiating upwards, also pain between my belly button incision and the left incision like a knife is cutting my up on the insides, it's awful! However they only now feel like telling me cysts were present on my ovaries, and my results from my appendix came back and I didn't have any infection or inflammation! I am stuck for words! I had another ultrasound and X-ray and apparently no cysts again?
I'm in agony! I have another appointment with the hospital this Thursday and I am just confused as hell! Has anyone got issues after having the appendix removed? Or any possible other diagnosis? I will be asking them to check everything again (as mentioned I've had CT ultrasound X-ray bloods and urine checked) and it's ridiculous how this is draining me down and getting to me. I constantly feel sick, food isn't appealing to me however I eat because my mother will still force feed me to this day, the pain is enough to wake me up at night or I struggle to sleep as I sleep on my side and this is a struggle to do because of the pain. Please note through this whole time I have also had diarrhoea so they have booked me a flexible endoscopy
If anyone has any suggestion? Possible help?
I'm currently going to go into hospital on Thursday and I've kept a diary for pain, a book of questions and notes however any help is greatly received!
