GasX does not cure Appendicitis

My 14 year-old son was home sick for two days last week with a virus, when he developed pain in his abdomen that wouldn't go away.

He thought it was gas.

However, after 6 hours of pain and no relief from GasX (they have these neat little thin strips that you dissolve on your tongue), we moved to Plan B: The Emergency Room

Turns out he had appendicitis, and less than 12 hours to remove it.

The lesson I have learned from all of this?
GasX does NOT cure Appendicitis. 

Have you had your appendix out?
(I still have mine. Is it a ticking time bomb?)
