"Ruptured appendix"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital / Gastroenterology

(as the patient),

I was admitted on a saturday. I had a burst appendix and had op early hours Monday morning. Lots of things went wrong. Now I have to have 3 weeks off work I believe due to my appendix being left far too long before my operation.
