My brother just had his appendix removed about 2 months ago. And just the other day he started to get these sharp pains in the same place where his appendix was. So that day he was admitted into the hospital because the pain was so severe, worse than when he had his appendix. Five days laters hes still in the hospital. They have done so many tests on him and they cant seem to figure out what the problem is. All they know is that he has inflamation in his intestines, but dont know what is causing it. He is diabetic and they found that his appendix had gangrene when it was removed. Has anyone gone through this. He is desperate for answers.
