The restrictions on eating meat on these days is solely as an act of penance and not because of a religious objection to eating meat. The simplicity of this message has eluded people up to now. A vegetarian diet which is poorly planned can lead to hyperhomocysteinemia and platelet disorders; this risk may be offset by ensuring sufficient consumption of vitamin B 12 and polyunsaturated fatty acids. After that week i was back to normal. Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health. Tired of being overweight? Sometimes he feels some tightness down there but it is very minor and is probably his organs getting back to their normal position after the plastering effect he had with the walled off condition.

By applying some of the principles of healthy eating as proposed by Harvey Diamond in this book, I have already seen dramatic results in just under two week. I am losing weight, I have more energy, I am more focused, my digestive system feels great and, on top of it all, I have an enhanced sense of well being.
I highly recommend this book for everyone, especially those who have struggled with weight gain, deteriorating health with age or lack of energy. I have struggled with these factors for a number of years.
One day, I just decided to do something about it and handle the situation for good. I started looking around and then remembered Fit for Life, the original book, which I had read back in I was struggling then with low energy and recurring illness. I read that book and applied it. Within months I was at my ideal weight with abundant energy and good health. As time went on, I strayed. This is an updated book to the original. I saw some of the negative reviews, and I admit that Harvey does a lot of talking and preaching before getting to the point.
But I actually appreciate that, because I think it is important to get a full understanding of why this method works, and to know about all the misguidedness and misconceptions that are out there. I am really enjoying this book, and I intend to recommend it to my friends and anyone interested in advice. I am a former long distance runner who stopped running 8 years ago, put on 60 pounds of weight and gradually resigned myself to the fate of a middle-age man living on the Standard American Diet SAD and sedentary lifestyle.
Five weeks ago I started running again. I was getting along fine and losing about 1 pound each week. But I wanted more. So, 2 weeks ago, I started eating only fruits in the morning until noon. I lost 2 pounds that week. This week I added proper food combining, and dropped another 4 pounds. I know it's not fit-for-life alone, but for sure the combination of eating more living food in a proper way and regular exercise is resulting in maximum benefit.
I honestly feel better every day. Before, my body was feeling slow, heavy and lethargic. Now, every day I feel a little better, a little more nimble, a little more energetic, a little lighter, a little stronger, a little more positive, calmer, happier and eager for what the next day or week will bring. I have been following this plan for a few months and I have noticed an increase in my energy during the mornings. I did give up after the first week, I wanted my pancakes with fruit on top, and regretted it within an hour, I felt very lethargic and ended up sleeping for over 12 hours.
I thought it might be a fluke and had my pancakes with fruit the next day again and had the same results. I went back to the plan and I feel wonderful. I do believe that it took about a month for my body to get use to the changes. I will revisit this review after a few months. This has been the best Diet I have ever been on and believe me, I have tried practically every diet out there.
I have a nice 4 inch scar and an interesting story out of the whole ordeal. Due to these months of my body dealing with the ruptured appendix, my hormones have gotten screwed up and due to issues related to the hormones, have had my gallbladder removed, along with other medical issues.
The intestinal issues made it so I had practically no abdominal muscles, so I easily ruptured a disc in my vertebrae that also went undiagnosed for 3 years due to its complicated nature though not from lack of rigorous testing from many doctors.
But even though I have all these issues that stem from my appendix problems, I am lucky and happy to be alive. Thanks for letting me share my story. I was also really weak, so I spent the day in bed.
I woke in the middle of the night with abdonminal pain,and I started vomiting. My dad gave me alcheselzer, and after a couple hours of rocking in pain, I was able to fall back asleep. When I woke up Sunday morning, the nausea was gone and the pain had subsided. I had the illusion that I was feeling better, so I ate breakfast. Shortly after, the pain came back, and started to feel really week and feverish. By Monday morning, I was in so much pain that I could not stand up straight.
I was running a fever and suffering from violent chills. By that time, I realized that something was seriously wrong with me. My mom took me to the doctor, and I was immediately sent to the emergency room because I had all the classic signs of appendicits.
The doctors confirmed I did have appendicitis. Unfortunately, that happened to be a day when there a lot of emergency surgeries including 4 other appendicitis cases. I got to the emergency room around My appendix had burst by the time I went into surgery. My anesthesiologist must have messed up the dose of anesthesia because I ended up regaining consciousness while I was still on the operating table.
The surgery was finished, but it was not time for me to be concious. It was wierd because at first I heard this girl screaming, then I realized that I was the one screaming and I was screaming because I was in agony.
The pain I was in before the surgery which was a 10 on a scale was nothing compared to the agony I was in at that moment. I was completely aware of everything that was happening around me, but for some reason I could not open my eyes or move any part of my body.
I felt the doctors swing me from the operating table to the stretcher. That made the pain even worse. I screamed in agony as the doctors wheeled me over to the recovery room. When I got to the recovery room, I started coughing a hacking cough that nearly ripped opened my stitches. When the nurse finally gave me morphine, the pain subsided, I was able to open my eyes, and I could move again Thank God I was not paralyzed.
It was a slow recovery. My wounds took about 6 weeks to recoveer. I was benched for the rest of my track season which sucked because I had just been cleared to return to track after a 6-month injury.
I also became sickly after the surgery. I got frequent colds, and I was constantly fatigued. I thank God that I lived to tell this story. I asked him what did he eat and did he need to use the bathroom.
This went on all night. I described his pain to the ER doctors that he felt like a worm with 1, teeth was eating away at his stomach. We was told to go home get clear liquids, and it will clear up with in a few hours. I went home, got him some clear liguids and watched over him. I watched my baby suffer. They immediatly took him in and after running alot of test and taking blood, they discovered his appendix had ruptured sometime within 24 hours.
When they opened him up the toxic was so bad that they couldnt close his stomach, and he stopped breathing, and was on life support for 10 days.
All of this was 8 days before his 19 birthday. I was told to make final arraingments because he wasnt breathing. But thank God for his Grace and Mercy, he saw it fit and in his will to give me my baby back. We just celebrated his 20th birthday, because his 19th he was on life support. I wouldnt wish this on anyone. But thank God for having the final say.
I am still recovering from my ruptured appendix. It could kill you. Exactly one month ago today I felt pain on the right side of my belly like none other I had ever experienced before. I was having my period and thought that maybe I was experiencing some form of cramping that I had yet to come to know in this lifetime.
No sleep came to me as I moaned through the night. The next day my partner and I decide I needed to go to Urgent Care. Make our way there at about 2: I wonder if my appendix would have ruptured if I had been seen by a doctor 36 hours earlier?
Knowing what I know now I would go straight to the ER and bi-pass all the rest that only seemed to keep me from getting the help I needed. I had to have drains put in a week after surgery due to infections in the place where my appendix once was and one on my uterus.
Recently About 3 months ago. I started feeling the pains as well. After about 2 days of these pains, I went to the hospital. They took my blood sample, the doctor poked around. And then prescribed me expensive pills to buy, and told me to come back in 2 weeks for an x-ray. So next day I get up and walk to get these pills at local pharmacy.
I went home and took these pills and was not feeling any better the next day. And decided that Its time to go back to the hospital. Which case I was asked to take blood samples, and a different doctor telling me I had High white blood cell count. And then preformed x-ray on me. The Doctor told me, I had a build up of alot of Feces, And then I felt pretty embarrassed that i was filled with feces.. So he prescribed me a laxative, which then I went to the doctors and got a laxative. He told me in 5 days I should be better… 5 days later..
I went back to see yet another different doctor. I told her that im pooping, but im not pooping enough to get better. So she gave me a stronger prescription of laxative to get. Then In a few days I should feel better.. I go back to the hospital. And then A new doctor, Poked me, and pulled her hand away really quick at my right stomach she asked me if that hurt, and i said yes. She comes back about 30 minutes later and tells me I have ruptured appendix start me on IV treatment. So for 2 weeks I was admitted.
Then Released without any surger…. And even to this day, Its still in me, and Im scared. My specialist has been on holidays this and that and just waiting to see him is awful. It aches but it isnt a strong aching feeling just that it kinda aches.
And my poop has not been the same since, and with blood in it, which my specialist knows now. So im still really upset that, there really is no ambition anymore to help me. I hope i dont have permanent damage,. Wow, that sounds extremely dangerous. My fiances uncle just died in his early 40s from his appendix rupturing. I had no clue that this was such a serious complication. He was in pain for a while and like most men, he shrugged it off as him straining a muscle.
By then the damage had been done. He also had his stomach pumped from the puss that formed in it. After two weeks of being in the hospital,the worse news comes on Monday, Labor Day just the other day , that our beloved, favorite uncle had passed away. They beleive he had went into cardiac arrest probably found him when they were doing rounds.
I figured that since he made it into the hospital that he would eventually be fine. After reading all the stories, I realize how serious this really is. Wish I knew this before and was able to communicate it to him long before the rupture.
Woulda, shoulda, coulda never changed the course of history…. Harlem USA…You will be missed terribly and you are loved! Wednesday we brought her to the ER due to severe stomach cramps… diagnosis was stomach flu and specifically not appendicitis.
From Tuesday until Friday she is laid out on the couch unable move from extreme pain and I have to carry her to the rest room where she can throw up and have diarrhea. It kills me now looking back at what she endured.
So on Friday we take her to a different doctor and just like the other stories on here: IV, CT scan and they find the ruptured appendix. This is my little girl!
I just hope all goes well from here on out. It started first though, with me burping uncontrollably to a point where I was feeling frustrated and tired. Overall it was a scary incident cause the tremendous pain, diagnosis and surgery were all done under 24 hours. It all goes o show how fast things change. So good luck to all, and stay safe.
I found this site looking up this problem because my doctor told me after pressing down on that part of my stomach, that if it started hurting esp. Hard to believe you can be taken away from your family suddenly for something that many of us -and certainly i, would have ignored as something else. I was there for something else but i guess he noticed it was inflamed. My mom and i have decided to go in early tomorrow. Hope i get taken care and everything goes well. My son is 33yrs old and like most of you suffered with serious stomach pain.
He thought the pain was stomach poisoning and treated the simptoms with various over the counter medications. His CT Scan showed his appendics was intact. When he was finally taken to surgery at After surgery we were informed the appendix had burst. I am reading this blog to find out what we can expect in the days to come. I am so thankful my wonderful son is alive and doing better by the hour.
From this point forward I will trust my Lord and Savior that my son will recover and lead a productive full life. Prayers and best wishes to you all. I was taken to the ER and was told I had a blockage in my left kidney. They put stints in it and performed surgery. Two weeks after all of that with my kidney, I started to feel sick.
My stomach got HUGE! I went to the ER again and they asked me if I was pregnant!! They took CT scans and found out my appendix has ruptured 5 days ago and it was encapsulated. The anti-biotics I was on from my kidney surgery saved me. My appendix is still in me. Should I go to a different doctor for a different opinion or is it safer to keep my appendix in me? Will it rupture again?
Thank you and God Bless. I woud say go to a different doctor. I went through the same thing a couple years ago, but mine was ruptured for two weeks and they did have to cut me open. I thought I had the flu.
After a week straight of vomiting I went to a walk in clinic. They said it was the flu and sent me home! The next day I was half dead and had a fever of a hundred and four. Finally, at 6 pm they got me into surgery, saying it would only be an hour to an hour and a half, it ended up being almost four hours.
I had an abcess the size of a grapefruit in my abdomen, pertonitis infection of the lining of the stomach , and was septic. I was in the hospital for eleven days. I had early pnumonia and had to have a tube inserted through my nose to my stomach to get rid of all the nasty infection. The surgeon said its amazing I lived. A lot of people have gone through so much pain, I hope you all are able to figure out your health problems. I was had pain through out my stomach and due to this I didnt just feel pain on my side.
At first i thought it was gas pain or food posioning. I took some tums and tried to go to sleep. Then i started vomiting. The pain would not go away and then increased as the night went on. I vomitted about three times during the day. I finally could not take the constant annoying pain and woke my husband.
I went to the er at 12 midnight. After being seen and CT scan was done — by this time it was 3: I just had surgery on saturday. I prayed that my appendix didnt rupture because i knew the comlications that would follow. Good news after surgery I asked my husband if it prayer ruptured and he said no. I was so happy. The power of prayer does work. I pray that you all get better soon and have a speedy recovery. Between Mar and Early Sep the pain got so bad I just wanted to die as the doctors just kept ignoring me as if I was making it up.
Mine was inflammed on a friday, burst sunday and I was unaware of this for 5 days.. Consider yourself lucky I Had my belly opened and cleaned.. He was on IV antibiotics 4 days then avelox 3 weeks. Only drained it once. We have decided not to have an internal appendectomy since appendix likely gone anyway and statistics show non surgical conservative treatment is typically enough in a case such as his where rupture and pockets of abecess occurred.
He is 10 weeks since he went into the hospital and no issues. Sometimes he feels some tightness down there but it is very minor and is probably his organs getting back to their normal position after the plastering effect he had with the walled off condition. I walked around with a burst apendix for a good 2 weeks.
Doctors thought i was lying. I was 15 so i didnt really realise how bad it actually was until now. Im only looking into it because of a paper im writting for my uni course. I too had a similar experience when I was 9 years old. All the same pain, misdiagnosed intestinal flu, tubes in my stomach, etc. I had the Last Rites performed over me by a sympathic priest in the Catholic hospital I was in.
I am not Catholic. This was in No cat scans, etc. A year later I had to have repairative surgery for torn stitches in my abdomen from the rotted tissue. I was really against drs.
I told them I had had a kidney infection before and this was nothing like one. A week later, a chiroprater finally took an X-Ray and saw a colon blockage. I had a colonic and began throwing up feces. I was rushed across town to a specialist and was operated on within the hour on a Friday afternoon. I had scar tissue grown around my colon that was blocking it. If you have had abdomenal surgery and ever, EVER have more pain like mentioned-scream as loud as you can to the drs!!
I went to was the same one that had operated on me as a child and I told everyone else of my previous surgery, to no avail. I owe the successful births all at home-I really, really do not like drs and hospitals of my 5 children to the fact that I have been dilagent in my pursued of natural and alternative medicine and lifestyle. Peach and wellness to you all. I am wondering if you are still around or if anyone is still around who might share some experience on recovery process and time.
I dont know if my experience is unique or not, but I had a burst appendix and they did NOT operate. Instead they hooked me to an IV and gave me loads of antibiotics and sent me home after 3 days with a bunch of prescriptions and told me to call and setup an appointment for next month.
They gave me no kind of instructions, such as whether I should go to school the next day, work, drive, anything. Is it typical to leave the hospital with the appendix still intact, on prescription narcotics, and your daily routine goes back to normal the next day?
I too suffered a ruptured appendix in and just now looked it up out of curiosity, and i am shocked to read how severe it is that once ruptured it could be fatal in hours! Fortunatley mine wa only ruptured for about 8 hours! I was in 7th grade and really hate missing school! But it was a saturday when i started feeling kind of odd i just hurt in my abdomen and just prefered to lay down. Then on sunday i spent the day taking warm baths, throwing up and enduring pain my mom thought was the flu as it was early december and flu season.
Then the pain became much worse on monday and i stayed home from school sick. The earliest they were able to get an appointment was later in the day.
Well by the time my appointment came i was no longer in pain but my parents took me in anyway! Well good thing they did at the clinic they took urine sample and various other test and said it was very lokley my appendix had ruptured and i should be taken to a hospital immediatly!
So my parents and i rushe to the hospotal and i drank the clear, chalky,nasty substance that is berrium which helps with tje cat scans on the way to the hospital!
While me having motion sickness struggled with the task of drinking the berrium. So by the time we were to the hospital i felt very sick. When i got there i was attached to an iv and given more berrium. I was finally able to go in for the cat scan and sure enough my appensix had rupture and they called in the surrgeon who specified in this for an emergency appendectimy spelling? I had the 3 small incisions. So for the 1st day i was only allowed to eat ice chips because it had ruptured and i still had extremly high blood counts and they were scared that perhaps their could still be some remains of what had ruptured.
After my ice doet i was put on a liquid diet and ecentually eased to solid foods. Even though my blood counts were still high they released me and i just had to come visit the surgeon at his office lile once or twice a week until my blood counts were to normal, if they were not normal in weeks i would have to go in for a second surgery to remove what remained.
Well in about a week- a week and a half my blopd counts were to normal and i was clear, just in time for christmas! I then was unable to do phyaical activity until january!
