    Ruptured appendix, drain, what is that gunk?

    I had a ruptured appendix last week, still have my drain tube in - what I need to know is what is that stuff that looks like raw meat in my drain bag? I asked the doctor if it was fat, he just laughed and sent me home, never answered my question. Does anyone know what it is?

    I must say you were very lucky. Ruptured appendixes are very life threatening. It is proboly tissue that is being drained out.

    I hope you have a speedy recovery.
