The appendix is a finger-sized organ located on the right side attached to the large intestine. The organ has no known function but if it gets infected or becomes inflamed, it will cause immense pain that will only grow over the next few days. The appendix will rupture eventually if you don’t see treatment in the next few days.

"Most people don't even know about appendix until the appendicitis develops. However, once the pain begins, the condition is usually acute, the pain grows rapidly and turns severe within a day or two. This is why, once appendicitis is recorded, I always suggest immediate treatment. Any delay only severes the condition, risks rupture, infection and disturbed bodily functions. It is one of worst pains. Therefore, I strongly suggest, if you feel any abnormal or intense pain in the extreme right side of your lower pelvic, seek immediate medical help and do not delay treatment. If diagnosed early, it can be treated through laparoscopy and the recovery can be much faster and simple. "

Most people confuse chronic and acute appendicitis with each other. Appendicitis occurs when the appendix becomes infected or inflamed and starts causing abdominal pain. But in acute and chronic cases, the frequency and severity of the pain are quite different.
Appendicitis is said to be acute when a person develops severe symptoms suddenly, within 24-48 hours. It is a medical emergency that should be treated without further ado. It occurs due to the following reasons-
Without treatment, the appendix can rupture or burst out within 2-3 days if the symptoms persist. Moreover, the abdominal pain will be intense and hard to ignore.
Chronic appendicitis can occur due to many different reasons, such as:
In chronic cases, the pain (this is the primary symptom) of appendicitis lasts for longer periods, most often a week or so. There can be other symptoms like fever, swelling, tenderness in the abdomen, tiredness, nausea, diarrhea, etc. present alongside. However, not all people with chronic appendicitis will have these symptoms.
The symptoms also subside on their own and return abruptly, which further makes it harder for the doctor to diagnose the condition accurately. Out of all the cases of appendicitis, only 1.5% are chronic.
Appendicitis can become life-threatening if it is not treated on time. There is a very high possibility that acute appendicitis causes the appendix to rupture due to which the fecal matter and bacteria spill into the abdominal cavity. This can lead to the following complications:
If these complications arise, it can make it difficult for the doctor to treat appendicitis right away.
Open appendectomy is the traditional approach that is performed through an incision of about 5cm or 2 inches on the right side of the lower abdominal wall. Laparoscopic appendectomy is a modern procedure that is performed through multiple small-sized incisions, each of about 1 cm or 1/2 inch.
While open appendix surgery is highly invasive, laparoscopic appendix surgery is minimally invasive and has the following advantages over the traditional approach.
Open and laparoscopic appendectomy have several risks and complications. But it is up to the surgeon to choose the best technique for the patient. In most cases, a patient prefers to undergo laparoscopic appendix removal surgery. However, in some cases, especially when the appendix is infected, the doctor may have to use the open surgical technique to carry out the procedure safely.
