You might remember I got an appendectomy earlier this year. I've had recurring pains over the years where the pain was so bad that I would sit on the toilet for hours just trying to get everything out of my system. Thanks to free medical in the Army, I finally got it check out. The first time they couldn't see anything, but the doctor suspected I had a 'smoldering appendix'. I was in Basic at the time so I let it slide because I was missing a lot of training.

The next time it happened the Army doctor had me take more tests but couldn't find anything. Not two weeks later I woke up with a searing pain and my wife rushed me to the hospital. The German doctors did an ultrasound of all things, and he told me that my appendix had swollen and was extremely large. I went into surgery the same day. BTW, German medical care excellent.
