In the Fall of 2010, I visited my grandparents a few towns over. What was supposed to be a long visit had to be cut short after I became increasingly fatigued, almost lethargic, a little nauseous, and began having sharp stomach pains. Finally, the doctors concluded that it was in fact an appendicitis and that I would need an appendectomy. An appendectomy is a surgery to remove the appendix, usually in an urgent matter.
