I've had a lot of righthanded pain since march. sometimes its so severe I can't move. the latest was the 6th I was in A&E - I had morphine & I was still in severe pain on contact. I've read up a lot chronic appendicitis & think it may be related. I've been told today but my GP today is I have chronic pain, the doctor in A&E said my appendix sounds to be grumbling. my latest bloods were CWB - 13, CRP - 30. I'm really sore & fed up. I'm getting prescribed painkillers onto painkillers onto painkillers which aren't doing anything.
would there be any way of getting it removed on the NHS before it goes acute? I'm so so fed up of it. :'(
