During a Laparoscopic operation they make three small incisions and use a camera to guide them. I am happy to report that they did end up performing a Laparoscopic Appendectomy. The doc scared me a bit because he said that if my appendix was ruptured that they would need to cut me open.
He must be really good because afterwards he told me that my appendix was ruptured. I am not afraid of dying. But I am afraid of not being there for my family, my wife, my beautiful baby girl.
I kept on tearing up as I thought about the possibility of losing them. Even now, I am getting teary-eyed as I think of it. It is one of the worst feelings in the world. When the accounting rep. I know she was doing her job, but damn.

Hey there Israel, i read your surgery story, and well first of all i had surgery from exactly the same thing on december 30th thats when i went to the emergency room after being a week with a pain in my right lower abdomen, so i walked in to the emergency room and after like 8 hours they took me in and then all the same procedures as in your story, the talk with the doctor and the surgery consent and the liquids and the scan and all, when i read your story is like reading what i went trough, although i was afraid of dying really afraid to be honest.
I was sitting down at my computer and all of a sudden I had a massive pain hit me. It didnt hurt in any particular spot on my stomach. I went to the hospital that night and the doctor sent me home with a stomach virus. After 3 days of unbearable pain and fever, I went back to the hospital. Another doctor caught it and I had the surgery done. I have 3 lap. I spent 2 weeks in the hospital then went home.
The pain from the surgery was bad enough that I had to stay in the bed for several weeks. I ended up going back to the hospital because the surgery area absessed.
I stayed another week in the hospital for that. As a result of all of that, I had premature medopause at Because the first ER doctor failed to diagnose the appendicitis — you had a more extensive operation, longer recovery time and suffered premature menopause. Seriously… consult a lawyer. You were simply just very lucky to of had survived that. If it were me, I would thank God every single day of my life for not letting me die and leave my family behind. I wish that my 8 year old causin, Kevin, would of had the same luck as you with the eruption of his appendix.
There doctors told his parents that his appendix had rupture 3 days before he was taken to the hospital. The doctors did everything they could to try and clean his insides and try to repair the damage that the toxins had done.
But… nothing had seemed to work. He never woke up after the heart attack. This proves that this desease if you can calle it that respects no age, no relegion and no income status.
I am just now at 2 weeks post op from emergency surgery for a ruptured appendix. I never had any idea how serious of a condition this is and how potentially life threatening. After 5 days in the hospital.. Yes this fella is very lucky, I just got out of the hospital 2 mos ago for the same thing. Mine had ruptured and the dr was very shocked that i had walked into the ER. He told my old lady that if i were to put it off another Day or Two , i would not be here today. Allthough as of now im still having complications.
THey had to cut me open like a stuff pig. Today i have burring and sharp pains from my drain tube to the surgical inssion. I felt like i had the 24 hr flu, I was upcking couldnt pass stules had pains like a cramped musscle along my right groin area. Had very hard time eating, Every time i tryed to eat just one bite of food i felt a pain straight down my chest into my whole stomach. And then after about a week i was felling have way decent. I went to work for 2 days the third day i couldnt move hardly at all.
I then told my old lady that she needs to take me to the ER. We drove in and they rushed me as like i was bleeding to death right there in front of there arms after i told them what pains and expereance i was having. My word to you all is Dont dought your body. I myself olmost went 6ft under. Glad to hear you made it Israel Lagares.
Hope things will get better for me here soon. I suffered from acute appendicitis when I was 9 in Christiphor Columbus day on a monday. But my story will be a bit shoking maybe because they had to do a scan to find out I hate appendicitis.
This is my story…. It was late at night and im in the car with my family. All of a sudden I fell pain but towards the middle of my stomache. The pain was as if I had to go to the bathroom. When we got home i was in such pain that I went to bed and tried to sleep.
I tried evryhting but the pain was unbearable! My dad went late at night to a nearby pharmacy that was open 24hrs to get Pepto Bismol. I chewed them they were chewable and about 15 or 10 minuetes later I just vomit the entire medicine. Most people would hurt when they let go but mine was when they pushed. Again, I was perfectly able to.
Once again yes I could. I was so scared i was a kid!! After 1hr they operated me. The operation is done through the belly button. I had to stay a night in the hospital walking around pretty much evry 8 minuets! The next day I ate breakfast there and laid back down on my bed. Then like 3 doctors come some girls too and asked me if i wanted to go home i said yes. I spent 2 weeks half myself. After surgery you return to your regular self but you spent 2 weeks not being able to work out of use stairs.
I spent the first week with pain. The second wek is till ahd abit of pain but not as much. After that week i was back to normal. It was an experience I will never forget. It was also an experience that made me sad for the reason that I might die. I am truly lucky and give so much thanks to God. I too suffered from a ruptured perferated appendix.
I was ironing when I got terrible cramps, I thought maybe they were really bad menstral cramps. When the pain got really bad I tried going to bed but was up vomiting in no time. After about an hour or two I drove myself to the emergency room. After a quick assessment by the nurse I was asked to wear a mask and wait in the waiting room. During the wait I continued vomit. The pain was excuriating and I was curled up in a ball on a chair.
After about a three hour wait I went back to the check in and found aout the wait was still about 5hrs. I asked the girl at the counter what she thought might be the problem and ahe told me it was a very bad flu that was going around. I pressed her and told her I had never been in such pain and have a pretty high pain threshold. She assured me it was a flu the diarrhea would start soon and that it would pass in approx.
Thus began the horrible wait. After about 48hrs my husband brought me back to the emergency. This time there was no wait, I was immediately hooked up to an IV and given pain medication and gravol they knew right away what the problem was. They were unable to operate because there was such a mess floating around inside. I was a patient of Infectious desease and sugery departments. By this time my veins were collapsing and they could no longer get blood samples on a regular basis.
Long story I know but it continues. At this point the pain is unbearable even with all the pain medication that made me feel horrible and on edge and my stomache had grown to the size of a pregnant lady expecing twins.
About three weeks in they decided to take a chance and try sugery nothing else seemed to work and fannkly I was begging them to at this point. About week 3 or 4 they noticed that the infections stuff floating around in my abdomen was starting to attach itself to my organs.
I had two what they call pigtails inserted into my abdomen during an ultrasound I was awake to drain the infection. Finally after 6 weeks inc. Christmas and New Years in the hospital I was sent home with my central pick line to continue home care. A year later I still felt unwell and noticed that I had alot of pain on my right side and requested another cat scan. Well the results quickly brought me to my next sugery a full hysteroctomy due to complications from the rupture appendix.
I walked around with a ruptured appendix for months. I was in the hospital April with diverticulitis. May of , I had a fistula with the colon and my bladder, so they needed to operate and fix up the bladder. When they opened me up, they found that my appendix was ruptured and my right overy was all abcessed over. How I am still alive is pretty amazing. I was in a good amount of pain for a year before they figured out what the problem was.
Hi, Back in I experienced horrible pain in my abdomen, went to the local emergency room and was diagnosed with block blowel and sent home with a liquid laxative. I believe after taking the laxative is when my appendix ruptured. Things just went from bad to worse and went to another emergency room twice was finally admitted to a hospital.
They did every test in the book and after 8 days in the hospital, released me undiagnosed. I continued to become weaker and weaker and then something really horrible happened and I called the doctor and he knew immediately what had happened.
My appendix had ruptured 30 days before and I was instructed to go to the hospital immediately. Surgery was performed the next day and all my abdominal organs had to be taken out, cleaned and replaced. No one can believe that I am still alive. Guess the Lord still has something planned for me.
I thank God everyday that I am still here. When I was 12, I was horribly sick for about a week. I remember one night rolling around on the floor screaming as my vision turned red. I started to feel better, but over the next 3 months I was constantly sick. I would come home from school 3 days out of the week.
I started to see a doctor who tested me with ultrasounds and stomach x-rays but nothing showed up. They saw that my white blood cell count was off the charts and sent me to the bigger hospital an hour drive away.
I stayed at that hospital for 2 days before they sent me by Careflight to UC Davis Medical Center, where after a few days they diagnosed me with a ruptured appendix that had ruptured 3 months back.
I stayed in the hospital for another week and a half. I have a nice 4 inch scar and an interesting story out of the whole ordeal. Due to these months of my body dealing with the ruptured appendix, my hormones have gotten screwed up and due to issues related to the hormones, have had my gallbladder removed, along with other medical issues.
The intestinal issues made it so I had practically no abdominal muscles, so I easily ruptured a disc in my vertebrae that also went undiagnosed for 3 years due to its complicated nature though not from lack of rigorous testing from many doctors. But even though I have all these issues that stem from my appendix problems, I am lucky and happy to be alive.
Thanks for letting me share my story. Creatine is not an essential nutrient  as it is naturally produced in the human body from the amino acids glycine and arginine. In the first step of the biosynthesis these two amino acids are combined by the enzyme arginine: Creatine itself can be phosphorylated by creatine kinase to form phosphocreatine , which is used as an energy buffer in skeletal muscles and the brain.
Synthesis primarily takes place in the kidney and liver, with creatine then being transported to the muscles via the blood. The majority of the human body's total creatine and phosphocreatine stores is located in skeletal muscle, while the remainder is distributed in the blood , brain, and other tissues. However, subjects happened to show the same levels after using supplements. Creatine, which is synthesized in the liver and kidneys , is transported through the blood and taken up by tissues with high energy demands, such as the brain and skeletal muscle, through an active transport system.
Additionally, in most muscles, the ATP regeneration capacity of CK is very high and is therefore not a limiting factor. Genetic deficiencies in the creatine biosynthetic pathway lead to various severe neurological defects. Deficiencies in the two synthesis enzymes can cause L-arginine: Both biosynthetic defects are inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. A third defect, creatine transporter defect , is caused by mutations in SLC6A8 and inherited in a X-linked manner.
This condition is related to the transport of creatine into the brain. Such a reaction happens when grilling or pan-frying meat. Use of creatine by healthy adults in normal dosages does not harm kidneys; its effects on the kidney in elderly people and adolescents were not well understood as of People with kidney disease, high blood pressure, or liver disease should not take creatine as a dietary supplement.
One well-documented effect of creatine supplementation is weight gain within the first week of the supplement schedule, likely attributable to greater water retention due to the increased muscle creatine concentrations. A systematic review discredited concerns that creatine supplementation could affect hydration status and heat tolerance and lead to muscle cramping and diarrhea.
Creatine taken with medications that can harm the kidney can increase the risk of kidney damage: Creatine has a fairly short elimination half-life, averaging just less than 3 hours, so to maintain an elevated plasma level it would be necessary to take small oral doses every 3—6 hours throughout the day.
As with most supplements, each person has their own genetic "preset" amount of creatine they can hold. The rest is eliminated as waste. Creatine supplementation appears to increase the number of myonuclei that satellite cells will 'donate' to damaged muscle fibers , which increases the potential for growth of those fibers. This increase in myonuclei probably stems from creatine's ability to increase levels of the myogenic transcription factor MRF4. Creatine supplements are marketed in ethyl ester , gluconate , monohydrate , and nitrate forms.
The most prevalent of these contaminants was creatinine , a breakdown product of creatine also produced by the body.
Heavy metals contamination was not found to be a concern, with only minor levels of mercury being detectable. Two studies reviewed in found no impurities. In , Harvard University researchers Otto Folin and Willey Glover Denis found evidence that ingesting creatine can dramatically boost the creatine content of the muscle.
The substance creatine is naturally formed in vertebrates. While creatine's influence on physical performance has been well documented since the early twentieth century, it came into public view following the Olympics in Barcelona.
An August 7, article in The Times reported that Linford Christie , the gold medal winner at meters, had used creatine before the Olympics. An article in Bodybuilding Monthly named Sally Gunnell , who was the gold medalist in the meter hurdles, as another creatine user. In addition, The Times also noted that meter hurdler Colin Jackson began taking creatine before the Olympics. At the time, low-potency creatine supplements were available in Britain, but creatine supplements designed for strength enhancement were not commercially available until when a company called Experimental and Applied Sciences EAS introduced the compound to the sports nutrition market under the name Phosphagen.
It is ineffective as a treatment for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
