my father was diagnosed in hospital with appendicitis, he was not operated on until 12 hours later, instead of immediately. He suffered immense pain, and his appendix burst during surgery which caused further complications causing an infection, long hospital stay, blocked bowels and severe pain post surgery. Upon his arrival at the hospital, he presented with signs and symptoms of appendicitis however was not issued proper testing for appendicitis till several hours later, once the test came back and confirmed it was appendicitis, as stated abound, he didn not receive surgery till 12 hours later. I find this wait time and the lack of medical attention very unsettling.
