hi there, if it is so severe that you cant move etc.. then take yourself to the hospital otherwise it is all due to having the sergery it is normal you will be fine, if you find the medicine is making you to unwell then tell your doc so and ask him about taking something else such as paracetomol etc.. also make sure you are eating as you may have strained your stomach with being sick, just eat and drink plenty of fluids.. good luck hope all goes well for you

You are fine If the pain is very bad, for a long period of time, for the Emergency Room.

Anyway, you had it easy. My appendix was swollen along with all my lymphnodes in my stomach area. Which made the pain difficult for the doctors to pin point what the problem was. I had pain where my appendix was, and also at several other spots in the stomach area.

I was 17 at the time (now 27). In the end, they had to do exploratory surgery becuase they couldnt figure out what it was. It left me with a 6 inch scar from the bottom of my rib cage to just below my belly button.

I was in the hospital recouping from the surgery for several weeks. I had no Abs muscles becuase they were cut through during the surgery. I couldnt stand up strait! And when I walked, I could feel my insides jiggle! LMAO! I remember being in the car ride home, and every bump we hit, my guts shook.

I am fine now. But, man, was it a learning experience

I wish I could help you, cause it would have helped me too. I have no had my appendix removed but I as well have stabbing pains ocassionally in my belly button area, and sometimes in the region of my appendix. I wish I knew the answer, cause my doc never seems to know.
