Where Do You Want to Be? Olivia's Story

“After my appendectomy, I was home recovering that same day. In two or three days, I was feeling back to normal.”  Olivia Isely, Argyle, WI

When 15-year-old Argyle Dairy Queen Olivia Isely developed appendicitis last August, her mom was confident she was in good hands with Dr. Maxwell. After a series of tests ruled out other possible causes, she underwent a laparoscopic appendectomy. Now, the only proof she had her appendix removed is three tiny marks where small incisions were made.

“I went home the same day, and in two to three days, I was feeling back to normal,” said Olivia.

It wasn’t long before she was back to her athletic activities, and she barely missed any of her royal duties as Argyle Dairy Queen.
