Oh No Associated with Mucinous Adenocarcinoma of the Appendix. Posted on September 8, 2012 View this journey (47 Experiences)

On a Sunday, a nurse noticed my drainage tube turning dark. I started running a high temp. I was given a couple of units of blood. I felt terrible and was in & out of consciousness. A scan showed fluid build-up in my lungs. It was very serious; I was septic. A fistula (communication) had formed between my stomach & diaphragm. My parents had just driven home. They made the 5-hour trip back.
