my son was admitted for observation on sat 17th jan 15 with symptoms which may be appendicitis but not necessarily. The surgical consult had a look at him and decided that he would listen to me as a mother knowing her child, rather than to his own clinical evaluations. Despite the chances of it being appendicitis being very low, the surgeon ordered blood tests to check for infection. These tests saved my sons life- less than 2 hours later he was undergoing emergency surgery on an appendix which had already ruptured.
