Appendix removed

I had my appendix removed 6 days ago, i was released from hospital 3 days later. I was really bad beforehand, had bad diahroea, stomach pains, fever and just generally run down. I feel fine, just the bruising and swelling. Looks like I have a tennis ball coming out of my side. Bruising goes all the way down to my penis. Theres some dark blue bruising on the bottom of my penis, it doesnt hurt but got my pretty worried. I guess this is normal? what is the average recovery time? I got a 2 week sick note.

Re: Appendix removed

hi there

i had my appendix out about 4 years ago , never had any lumps like tennis balls, they are usually the sign of a hernia which can be common after any stomach ops as they can cause strain to your muscles. I would go to your casualty department rather than you gp and get it looked at. good luck and wishing you a speedy recovery
