Hey all, this is a rather random question, but I have my reasons: Has anyone here had appendicitis? What were your symptoms? I googled it but the symptoms were so general that I would like to know what it felt like from someone who had it. Or, if there are doctors here which is entirely possible, any input would be appreciated. My reasons? I am leaving for the United States in 5 days (currently I am in Korea) and would like to know that if I merely SUSPECT myself of having it, do you think 5 days is too much to wait to return to the states and get diagnosed there? The reasons I don't want to do it here is that there is a language barrier that would prevent me from fully being able to converse with the doctor about my symptoms and any questions he may have, and if I do indeed not have it, or can wait 5 days, (or at least 2 days, in which case I can go to a hospital with my cousin and we can get the message across with my broken Korean and his broken English) I would rather not alarm my relatives for no good reason at all. I'm writing this to the forum because I'd like some informed information from intelligent people. Thanks very much.
