Question Rotten Appendix

Hoping someone can help. Back in July '04 my local E.R. had mis-diagnosed an appendix It had been in my body for 6 months before they got it out. Oddly it was not preforated (busted open) but biopsy showed very necrotic (rotten). Since then I have had several operation's due to infection they have called it a "stump appendix". After my last surgery 2/06 they said I should be o.k. well I'm not! Still having severe pain episodes!
Does anyone know if there are any long term/ life long effects of having a delayed appendectomy WITHOUT preforation. I've already had tests done for crohn's and IBD,ulcerative colitis with nothing difinitive.
Thank you for your help!
