Sounds like a Peterson's Hernia. I recall my doc warning me about them; said the weight loss could cause pockets the intestine can get caught in. So glad you got it checked out quickly.

Not sure why they took the other stuff- did you ask? Seems like they weren't sure and went to the 'usual suspects'.

What did they tell you to expect I'm terms of recovery pain? What kind of diet are you eating?

Getting rid of the appendix is pretty common with abdominal surgery. It's only function is to flare up and cause problems. Not sure at all about the ovaries, I would ask the doctor about that.

OMG... that's terrible. Glad you listened to your body and are okay. Never heard of such a thing.

I have a friend who went through the same thing. Her intestine was twisted and blocked. Surgeon also told her that its very common with any stomach surgery dealing with the intestines. I'm so happy to hear that you're ok. I would definitely ask the doctor who operated on you why they removed your ovaries. It will take you time to heal, but you'll soon be back to normal eating again. Take care of yourself.
