This video was taken my by surgeon on Monday, 11/03/2008.

Basically, I felt massive amounts of pain in my abdomen on Sunday night while studying for midterms. Well, I went to class the next day, took my midterms, and bailed out and ditched class to head to my general practitioner.

After he did some preliminary examinations, he told me I needed to hit the emergency room and get some other tests done right away.

After all that, they concluded I had appendicitis. Surgery was required SAME DAY or I could have ruptured my appendix and died.

Now I'm in recovery and doing better.

The footage is pretty awesome though, right?

UPDATE:
I've been out of recovery for almost 2 months now and I'm back to 100%. Have some minor scarring on my abs but nothing too major.

Thanks god all that's over!

UPDATE 02/05/2010:

I've been recovered for quite a while now! My how time has passed. There are virtually no scars where the incisions were made. I give my Surgeon an A+ for sure.

Also, feel free to rate the video. Almost over 30k views and only 28 actual ratings. I'm a bit shocked!
