While I wait for results I figured I would let the hive have a chance at guessing.
First had some not so solid poo around 4, right before I was supposed to leave for work. Get to work at 5 and feel fine. Then around 6 get stomach ache. 630 take tums and after 40 minutes no relief. Now the pain is covering all my abdoman, I feel nausious, and like I have to poo. Cold sweats kick in and I can no longer focus on work. The pain is a mix of a ful stomach, and day after drinking too much. Weird part is the pain is now pushing on my left side ribs.

I get some work done and bail. On my drive home something tells me to just go to the er. The doc pokes the right side of my abs and I jump. The overall pain is like a 7. To give a scale the only 10 I've ever had was a kidney stone that got stuck. Now, after some drugs and some more drugs I really don't have much pain except I had a massive shooting pain when I took a piss.

So, any takers? Or am I just too drugged and bored?

Welcome to my world Ulcerative Colitis and Celiac for me. Probably not what you've got, I had somewhat different symptoms.

This. My Mom had this once, it is basically like this: Your intestine develops a bulge, sort of like you see in a bicycle inner tube. The bulge fills with excrement (shit, to the baser-minded of you). Then it bursts, releasing the excrement (poo) into the body cavity and causing a condition remarkably like peritonitis.

Nowadays it is treated with antibiotics and uncaring hospital staff; in older days it was a death warrant.

Appendix... Surgery in the morning.

The gerbil joke was priceless, at work we joke about a guy we suspect shaves, declaws, and feeds hgh to gerbils for pleasure.

What do I win?

I had mine out 30 years ago. I still remember exactly what you described in your OP. Hope your surgery goes well.

And we have "that guy" at work, too.

Good luck with your surgery bro.
A nice clean Lap. procedure is always preferable to a nasty burst appendix.

Thanks everyone all went well. Surgery at 9 this morning. I will say this is one of the nicest hospitals I have ever been in. There are nurses and then nurses techs. The doctors are always coming through. The nurses do everything they can to help, which in turns makes me feel better so I am being extremely nice. I plan to address the powers that be about how their staff and facilities are wonderful. I can't stand when people only go out of their way to bitch and never for praise.

Oh, and all the rooms are singles with a two recliner chairs and a leather chair that folds out and up into a cot sized bed.

Guess I will be here until sometime tomorrow.
