My name is Richard White and I am a 38-year-old married teacher. On March 1st 2016, I was admitted to hospital with abdominal pain and operated on the next day. The surgeon found a tumour in my appendix and mucin throughout my abdomen. This story is about what happened next, my surgery, coping with the stress and the positives that came out of it.When I started feeling unwell in mid-February I was too busy to take it seriously. I put my loss of appetite and stomach ache to a bug and kept telling myself it would pass. A week later and I finally see my Doctor who can’t explain it and sent me away.
