At risk of turning this blog into Appendicitis Central…

...here is a brief summary of what Jackie’s boyfriend, Antoine, told me (or, at least, what I think he told me) last night about what happened when he got appendicitis way back in 1985.

After spending ten hours waiting in Hampstead’s Royal Free Hospital’s casualty department he got to see someone.  It then took three doctors (one of whom got it wrong) for him to be diagnosed with appendicitis after which he had to wait another 12 hours for an operation by which time his appendix had burst.  He then spent another month in hospital recovering.

Boy, am I glad I got ill in Japan.
