I went to AE ( as advised the doctor) on the 28/12/12 and about 6pm I was diagnose with appendicitis and told I had to be operated asap. On the 29th at lunch time I was "taken down" and by then I had a burst appendix. After few problems I was discharged and left with what was suspected to be a hernia. There was no post op appointment inspite of my GP asking for it as there had not been a diagnose about the "suspected" hernia . Finally I got a post op appointment on the 10/6/13 and the surgeon said I could do a normal life exercise etc. because I was 99% recovered and what was left of the hernia would disappear gradually. Now my hernia has grown and it´s giving me problems. What do I do?
