I hope you went in. If it ruptured I'm pretty sure you'd be in serious need of medical care.So it's years later..found looking for appendicitis forum. Went to surgeon today with right sided pain located in waist area for 5 days. She felt area after talking with her and said probably appendicitis and possibly rupture since its been 5 days. She gave me prescription for ct scan. My insurance has to pre-authorize it which can take days. The doctor said it is ruptured and nothing can be done except maybe antibiotics. What is very wrong with this picture? I am 60 years old. You'd think she would have said go to hospital now. At home not knowing what to do. My copay at ER is 700.00. I was just there 2 weeks ago for blood pressure that doctor told me to go. I was fine then. Worried I could be fine now..Just have a lot of pain when I move.
