HI, I had my appendix out via keyhole surgery about 2 1/2 weeks ago. My appendix hadn't ruptured but it was chronically inflamed as I apparently had appendicitis in September but was wrongly diagnosed in hospital.
Everything seemed to be healing ok and the pain was easing, but exactly 2 weeks after the op I noticed the site where my original pain was had become very sore and tender again, and I then also got what felt like muscle pain under my ribs. I saw my GP and got signed off work for a couple more days, and he sent me for urgent bloods. My bloods all came back fine but he told me to go to A&E if I was still in pain on the Saturday (yesterday) as he thought the pain should have gone by this time. The pain eased again and was fine until yesterday afternoon, after I had taken a train journey and walked more than I have for a while. Now I am very sore again. Is it possible I have just done a bit too much and strained myself? I don't want to go to A&E as the pain isn't bad enough to feel like an emergency but I really don't know what's happening. Does this sound normal? I'm really anxious and frustrated as I've been in pain since September and I thought everything would have resolved by now!
