Today's Appendix Update

January 30, 2008

It looks like my gastroenterologist has found me a surgeon, Dr. Megan Cavanaugh.

He also mentioned (yikes) that my appendo-lump might be the “beginnings” of something “not so innocent.” Like, as in, maybe the insides of this ball of flesh are something less benevolent than we’d like. Again: yikes. Get this thing out of me already.

Sounds like it’s going to be a week or two before I can get scheduled in. The sooner the better.

    and just think how lucky you are to live in the era of laproscopic appendix removal! when i had mysterious gastro-intestinal problems they just kinda randomly decided it was my appendix (was not) and when the opened me up and found something else, they just took it out anyway. and these were the days of the abdominal wall incision. which takes 9 million years to recover from. and causes peripheral issues. i spent FAR too large a portion of my late teens trying to keep from weeing my pants. boo.
