I’ve had an interesting week, last Sunday I was feeling pretty sick and wrecked all day long with a bit of vomiting really early in the morning, I didn’t think too much of it thinking that it was probably just a bit of food poisoning and that I would get over it relatively quickly.

Well I went to work on Monday feeling like death but as the day wore on I felt better and better. I went to Mum and Dad’s place and told Mum how bad I was feeling, she asked me about the pain, told me she thought it was Appendicitis and that I should goto the doctor.

My next step was getting on a bus to Brisbane, and I felt fine, but following Doctor Mum’s best advice my next stop was to a real doctor in Taringa and then Emergency. The doctor in emergency wasn’t entirely sure about it, but the surgeon penciled me in for surgery the next day. I was out the day after.

There has been alot said about the public health system here in Queensland with some possible poor decisions made by the current or previous governments, however I was happy with the experience. It’s possible that it’s due to the fact I was considered an emergency or to a quiet week, but my experience was extremely positive.
