I have been suffering with cfs and uc, had my appendix removed Friday. Now, 5 days later feeling better than I have in 11 years. Seriously, I'm not tired, no pain in my joints or abdomen. I am able to do things, without pain and exhaustion. My labs are always normal, I had abdominal pain that was slightly more than usual (what's new, I got UC) went to see my primary, she ordered a cat scan. Said, I need to have an appendectomy, did. Now, I cannot believe how well I feel. I have not felt this good in at least 11 years. Not sure if anyone has experienced this besides me, but I had to share this with you! hope a miracle happens for you too!

Oh my, that is wonderful news. If it was me I would be out celebrating but I really think you should take it very easily. Sounds like maybe you didn't have CFS/ME at all. That was my hope for many years but I have never found anything else. I am sitting here trying to figure out what that must feel like, good for you. It seems like I have heard of this before but I can't put my finger on it where I heard it. I just vaguely remember something about someone having appendicitis & having the same outcome as you. I hope for you that this is true. Many happy hugs going your way, Denise
