Last night, my husband texted me when he was on the train home saying he felt really sick. I thought "sick bug". Anyway, he was on the train just in front of mine. He called me when he got off and I could barely understand him. He was slurring his words and not making a great deal of sense. I went into the chemist to get him something for sickness. By the time I got home, he was bent over the toilet, being sick and doubled up in pain. I panicked, didn't know what to do so, as I do in any crisis, I called my mum. My mum said she'd come round and we'd take him up the hospital. I asked DH if he wanted me to call a doctor but he said no. But he looked so bad, I called an ambulance. He was actually crying out in pain and struggling to breathe. So the ambulance came, he didn't have a high temperature (although as I'm TTC I sometimes make him take his temperature for fun - as you do and he is usually 36.2-36.4!). His temperature was 36.8 but he was shivering but I know that's not a high temperature, but higher than normal for him. They monitored his heart and took his blood pressure, all was fine there. The paramedic then asked DH where it was hurting and he said it was on his lower right side. He'd had this pain since lunch time but it had gradually got worse. They felt the area where he was in pain and it hurt more when they pressed on it. So they took him off in the ambulance and gave him some gas and air and that eased the pain. So we sat up the hospital for 5 hours last night, me, him and my mum. Waiting, waiting and more waiting. They took bloods and urine sample. Had to wait hours for those results. Doctor took him in and said he had a higher than usual white blood cell count which could be a sign of appendicitis, but they said lots of other things can cause that and he did recently have flu. Anyway, they then told us to wait to see a surgeon. So that was another hour wait. Saw them and they pretty much said the same thing, examining his stomach for about the 3rd time. They wanted him to stay in to observe him but, him being him, didn't want to. So they said that was fine but to come straight back if the pain got any worse. He still has the pain this morning but milder. Could it be appendicitis? I don't really know what to do. I thought at first it could be trapped wind but I can't see why that would cause the pain where it is. Just wondering if anyone on here has had an appendicitis and what it was like? Was the pain extreme and then got milder?
