Shit man, hope you're ok. Not a nice thing to happen.
Cheers, wasn't fun (until they doped me up that is!).
Woke up at 4am with bad cramps, then proceeded to vomit on the hour, every hour til 11am when we reckoned it might be a good idea to get me to the hospital (which was 45 minutes away!!)
They IV'd me up with painkillers (light ones) and anti-nausea, doctor inspected me, appendix completely perforated, in the OR by 6pm.
Apparently it was a really bad infection too, a few more hours and I possibly would have died, but by then I was so hocked up on goofballs I had no idea what was happening. Wish my gf had had the good foresight to video me after surgery rather than just take a pick, apparently I made the "After dentist kid" look like a rank amateur.
