After 8 months and a weight loss of 50 pounds my GI dr sent me for 2nd CT Scan of abdomen and pelvis. There are still 4 stones in my appendix and some of my symptoms and lack of response to "conventional" IBS treatment ...I am scheduled for a laproscopic removal of my appendix next Friday. The surgeon that I work for is doing my surgery so he's gonna take a look around for adheshions while he is in there. I have done some research and while I do not deny having IBS, I have felt all along that something else was just wrong. Chronic appendicitis is real and hard to diagnois but here is hoping it will help some of my symptoms.Has anyone else had this? Anyone else had a lapap? Happy Thanksgiving!
