that said if you think you had it you might want to follow up with a cat scan to be sure it is gone as my brother just had fever chills pain in right side and have been nauseated when eating some foods saying he had food poisoning several times..i ate this same food and had no such effects..blood in a urine a week ago the color of an orange crayon and then dark tea was what prompted him to go to er.
It turns out had a urinary tract infection that was unrelated but what saved his life as it prompted him to go to ER and someone to insist and made sure he went.
It turned out he had a ruptured appendix for maybe months when he had the symptoms earlier.
I did not even know a person could live with a ruptured appendix not only that he was lifting a very heavy wheelchair in and out of car maybe 35 times a week and lifting very heavy boxes of produce I am using for my cancer.
The dr said he could have died but something you have no pain. There was little infection because the body tries to help you by walling off all infection and inflammation in a huge balls like a tumor
He had a between large grapefruit an small cantaloup size full of infection..the appendix was not sticking out and was wrapped under the colon and dr had to remove not only the large inflamed mass/ball and the appendix but also some of his small intestine and colon.
He had complications and had to be put on a ventilator in a medically induced coma and thankfully came out of it and is being released tomorrow.
Since i need him to be able to lift when recovered as acting as my caretaker, what might help him heal better and eventually be able to life despite them cutting abdominal walls.
any herbs, supplements or foods that could help him heal to be able to lift again one day..I know when I had a vertical c section they cut that muscle an I was never able to lift right again and since he is the only one who can help me, I am very worried...any advice?
he has a terrible diet..I heard him give a shopping ,list to my brother when he thought he would be home that night when they thought it was not ruptured and it was nothing but processed meat, sweets, junk food. in 20 items, he had not one healthy thing on it.
I am hoping to use this as a wake up call to get him eating better.
Anyway, I posted this about getting a cat scan as one does not want to think they are ok when actually have a ruptured appendix and risk dying like him or wind up with parts of your intestines gone.
It was not the symptoms that got him to a hosptial and saved his life but an unrelated severe uti that changed his urine color drastically that was unrelated to the appendicitis
So do natural but consider having it verified so one could actually be walking around like a time bomb ready to die any 2nd and not realize their appendix is not only bad but actually ruptured...Pain will not also warn us.
if you suspect it is that but feel you healed yourself naturally and that nothing is wrong..or that severe symptoms will alert you think again
Better safe than sorry. This incident that just took lace and all the worry and stress he would die put 5 years on me
We all just thought he had a weak system or was nuts as everything made him sick and apparently made food taste bad as he said everything that horrible when it didn't and that was why food made him sick and he was up all night vomiting. We never suspected in a 1000 years it as a ruptured appendix and that one could actually like with this and not die or know 100% I must get to the hosptial.
Maybe MRI can detect this and it is safer than cat scan as no radiation.
And any advice that might help him heal from surgery and be able to lift again please send it my way as having a very hard time gettign to appts and stores etc without him due to inability to get wheelchair in and out of car due to being too heavy. I am not even sure he will be able to push it again.
We are grateful he is alive but I know he needs to eat better..I only hope he will change his dietary ways. The link also talks about prevention.
