appendicitis

CANADA | Wednesday, 7 May 2008 | Views [2196] | Comments [2]

I was having an awesome time skiing at Whistler until one morning I woke up feeling unwell, with terrible pain on the right side of my abdomen. After a quick trip to the local medical centre, I was sent for blood work to confirm a diagnosis of appendicitis, then onto hospital to see a surgeon. I said goodbye to my appendix that evening.

How World Nomads helped

Prevent surgery! - Are you serious? If your son has appendicitis, he needs surgery straight away to remove his appendix. If his appendix bursts, the chances of death are very high. TAKE YOUR DOCTORS ADVICE!
