WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus Undergoes Emergency Surgery

WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus took to Instagram on Sunday night to reveal she had been rushed to the hospital to undergo an emergency appendectomy as her appendix was about to burst. It turned out that the situation took place on Tuesday and she's already recovering. The seven-time former women's champion wrote, "A reminder that if you ever have a nagging pain in your lower right quadrant – do go to emergency...After a crampy 10 hour travel day on Monday I was working through the pain on Tuesday prepping for an announcement (which I will post tomorrow). I have a pretty high pain tolerance so when what I thought was 💩 cramps but ended up getting pretty intense I drove myself to emergency and turns out my appendix was getting ready to burst – which can be really bad if it happens and like cause death and stuff so I'm really glad I went to check it out, you know to avoid the whole dying thing.

"Some takeaways – listen to your body. Dr. Google told me appendicitis was pain in the lower right abdomen, so that's why it took me a while to think it was that because at first the pain was all across my belly. But after getting another Dr. Google's opinion (reading another article) I found out it will start as pain across your stomach (also was tender to touch) but as the appendix gets more inflamed the pain will migrate to the right side and continue to to get worse. And boy did it. Turns out it's an organ that serves no function so good riddance old pal," she continued. "Got 3 new scars to add to my body badges and one less organ ... recovery hasn't been too bad so far, definitely manageable. Just wanted to check in! xo. Big thanks to my OR team at @mackenziehealth!!"

Mickie James, one of Stratus' oldest rivals, was one of the first to respond — "Oh god! Im glad your ok!!! Sending you lots of love and healing."
