I had to have emergency surgery last Thursday to remove my appendix. Thank god it had not burst, but it was swollen and infected and the doctor said it wouldn't have lasted much longer. I'm out of the hospital now and taking it easy for the next week or so. I noticed that one of the antibiotics they had me on comes with the warning that it can cause torn tendons. Just what someone who's had three shoulder surgeries to repair torn tendons needs to be taking, right??? I'm still a little dopey from my pain meds so I'm going to crawl back into my bed.
