This summer I’ve been enjoying a lot of my free time off of work. The way I’m feeling right now just before I get on the train to go to the Mayo Clinic for a colonoscopy, I’m feeling great! However, I’m also in the middle of a massive medical crisis. Last week I felt like I was going to throw up! This week I just feel like I could go to the emergency room any time I wanted to.
I’ve heard of people who get appendicitis every month and nothing comes up. This is different. When you go to the ER, you have to wait a few hours before seeing a doctor. So while Im going to the ER I will likely see a doctor.
I think this is a really important point that can’t be stressed enough. I’ve gotten an appendicitis or a diverticulitis (inflammation of the large intestine) in the past and I’ve tried to do the right thing by having the right thing done. I was going to go to the emergency room for an exploratory laparoscopy, but after a few days of really bad pain I decided to go to my doctor.
If you see a doctor, and they say you have appendicitis, just wait 6-8 hours and see if your Doctor suggests surgery. Because its rare, but it does happen to people.
The thing about appendicitis is that it doesnt happen only in the abdomen. Its also seen in the colon, which is the first organ to come into contact with the blood stream. The colon is the main part of our gastrointestinal tract that is constantly exposed to bacteria and parasites.
In the end, it’s not that we have to wait 6-8 hours for an appendicitis diagnosis. It’s that we have to wait 6-8 hours to get an appendicitis diagnosis.
There are some things you can do in the meantime. You can take your appendix out via surgery right away. Or you can use laxatives which can keep it from getting worse. Or you can take the appendix out via a CT scan.

This is a common problem with people who are overweight. People who are overweight need to be careful with their diet. They need to avoid certain kinds of food. But they can also be at risk for developing abdominal pain if they are not careful.
Since many people have a problem with “wanting to lose weight,” I was interested to learn that one doctor is now testing if a certain food can help a person avoid this problem. And he wants to test it at the Johns Hopkins Hospital where he has a fellowship. Dr. Shruti Rajagopal, a gastroenterologist at the hospital, recently received a grant from the National Institutes of Health to start a study to determine if the food can help with abdominal pain.
