      Before my surgery I actually asked my doctor to take my appendix out because I sometimes experienced pain. However during surgery, they took a biopsy from the appendix and found it showed no signs of cancer and he decided to leave it in because it is part of the immune system. He did however explain to me prior to surgery that if other organs showed signs of cancer, there was a possibility of part or all of that organ of being removed if it was one that I could survive without. If your doctor explained this same thing to you prior to surgery then you would have realized there was a possibility of something else being removed. If he had not mentioned this to you then he was negligent in informing you of what could happen during your surgery. However because it's the appendix and something that you can live without, I wouldn't get too upset about this. Talk to your doctor and ask why it was taken and why you weren't informed prior to surgery. Take care

      They took mine too w/o asking. I think I was just so relieved to be through the surgery that I just let it go. I trusted my doctor and if he felt the need to take it out, I was OK with that. I've never had any repercussions from it being removed, and it's 10 years later.

      I think part of the problem here is being billed for it separately (which seems dumb to me) and also that the bill came so much after the surgery. I would call billing and verify that the charge is correct and ask why it's not included in the debulking surgery costs.

    So I guess my phone number and email address don't show up? I don't know how to get them to you. Bummer. Perhaps I don't know this site well enough to have figured it out
