wow, glad to here youre okay. i had that happen to me last christmas, same thing, thought it was just indigestion and over eating but at about 1030 that night i told my mom i was going to the hospital with or without her

you got lucky tho, i had to sit in the er for about an hour before they saw me, apparently at one point i turned as white as a ghost, and i had surgery that night at like 3 am


did you get lucky and get the less invasive surgery? with just 3 small cuts or get the good old big cut? i remember i was pretty immobile for the first few days.

Here, an hour is very good (short of being a major trauma, heart attack, etc). Currently we have hospital ER waits in excess of 12 hours at times (just to get in). Our hospitals have EMT'* and Paramedics that work in the hallways to take over care from other ambulance crews because the waits can be so long. We were starting to find there were no ambulances to respond to calls because they were always backed up waiting for ER beds. It'* better now, but only marginally.

Yea...I had the three small incisions, laparascopy they call it. One at my belly button, one slightly below, and one to the left of it.

12 HOURS in the ER? Man..thats unbelievable.I waited maybe a max of 15 minutes after I registered and they took me back into the ER and gave me the pain meds and anti-nauseant. They took me ahead of several people though. I've been there other times , where my issue wasn't as severe, and it'* typically taken 45 minutes to two hours...and this is in a major metropolitan area, so the ER is very busy all the time. The Cleveland area has excellent hospitals though.
