My appendix was removed 5 years ago. I still remember it well, it was not a pleasant experience. I don't know how you managed to go to work with a ruptured appendix, I remember barely being able to get out of bed and then calling an ambulance in the afternoon. And I felt like shit afterwards too. Missed work for a month. I had to go back to the hospital after they had let me out because apparently my infection hadn't been properly taken care of and the fever went up again.
Anyway, two free weeks at home, that's not too bad
