  • What is Appendicitis?

    The appendix is a small 3 and 1/2-inch-long pouch joined to the large intestine on the lower right side of your belly (abdomen). Appendicitis is the inflammation of the organ. In the beginning, the pain occurs around the navel and right side of the abdomen. As the inflammation gets worse, the pain increases. The appendix can also burst if it is not removed on time.

    Although anyone can develop appendicitis at any age, most often, it occurs in people between the ages of 10 to 30. You can contact Pristyn Care to undergo a laparoscopic appendectomy in Bangalore at the hands of expert doctors.

    Treatment

    Diagnosis

    You may not think about appendicitis immediately as the symptoms like constipation or diarrhea, and vomiting can be caused by several reasons. Even heartburn may be one of the symptoms. If the medication for heartburn or gas does not help and you experience pain in the lower abdomen or lower back, it is time to seek medical help. Diagnosing appendicitis can be sensitive as the symptoms are similar to intestinal infection, Crohn’s disease, gallbladder problem, or urinary tract infection. Still, there is some clinical diagnosis that includes:

    • Urinary test
    • Blood test
    • Ultrasound
    • CT scan
    • Chest X-ray, in case of a child, to check pneumonia

    Procedure

    Sometimes antibiotics can treat infection in the appendix, but due to the busy schedule, patients usually prefer quick surgical treatment. Appendicitis is a medical emergency situation that must be treated within a few hours before it gets burst. There are two surgical approaches, open and laparoscopic appendectomies.

    In an open appendectomy, the surgeon removes the appendix by making a large incision in the abdomen. The appendix is removed and the wound is cleaned and closed with stitches. This is the most preferred procedure for those who have already gone through abdominal surgery or those who have a perforated appendix.

    In laparoscopic appendectomy, the surgeon makes 2-3 small incisions in the abdomen. During the procedure, the abdomen is inflated with carbon dioxide so that the surgeon can clearly see inside. A thin tube-like instrument with a camera attached on top of it so that the surgeon gets a view inside the abdomen. Other surgical instruments are inserted through the rest of the incisions. The appendix is removed and the incisions are closed using surgical glue.

    For adults and obese people, laparoscopic appendicitis surgery is the best treatment. There are several advantages of laparoscopic surgery over open surgery:

    • Small incisions and minimum scarring
    • Short surgery that takes 30-40 minutes
    • Less postoperative pain
    • Short hospital stay
    • Quick return to normal activities
    • Better cosmetic results
    • Fewer complications

    FAQs on Appendicitis Treatment in Bangalore

    What size of the appendix is normal?

    The average size of the appendix is 6cm in length and when a patient suffers from appendicitis, the appendix size varies from 10cm to 25cm. It is an emergency condition for which appendectomy is the best treatment.

    What are the emergency signs of appendicitis?

    Here are some signs that mean that you need emergency treatment for appendicitis:

    Is it possible to treat appendicitis without surgery?

    Yes. Chronic appendicitis can be treated with the help of antibiotic medicines, such as ampicillin, tramadol, diclofenac, ceftriaxone, etc. These medicines will treat the infection and reduce inflammation that will provide you temporary relief. However, there will still be chances of recurrence and advancement of chronic appendicitis into acute appendicitis.

    Is appendicitis curable?

    Yes. Surgery is the permanent cure for appendicitis as it removes the organ completely, thereby eliminating the pain and other symptoms.

    When to see a best appendix surgeon in Bangalore ?

    Suffering from severe & persistent pain? Get in touch with Pristyn Care & consult the best surgeons to undergo appendectomy or appendix removal surgery in Bangalore.

    Appendicitis is one of the conditions that are almost always treated as an emergency. It is often diagnosed at the chronic stage as most people don’t take abdominal pain seriously. And at that stage, appendix removal surgery (also known as appendectomy) is the only way to treat appendicitis.

    If you are also suffering due to consistent abdominal pain, Pristyn Care is here to help. We provide advanced medical care in Bangalore as well as in other major cities of India to make advanced treatment easily accessible for everyone.

    We house a certified and highly qualified team of general and laparoscopic surgeons. Our doctors have more than 8 years of experience and ample knowledge of how to handle even the most severe cases of appendicitis.

    Generally, the doctor will recommend that the appendix is removed surgically as quickly as possible to make sure that it doesn’t rupture inside the body. Acute appendicitis can be treated with antibiotics but if the condition has become chronic, surgery is the only potential way to treat the condition. Thus, it is necessary that you have reliable and reputed doctors by your side so that you can relax and have surgery without any hesitation.

    What is the difference between acute and chronic appendicitis?

    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.

    Acute Appendicitis

    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-

    • A viral, bacterial, or parasitic infection in the digestive tract
    • Stools causing a blockage in the tube between the large intestine and appendix
    • Inflammatory bowel disease
    • Injury or trauma in the abdomen
    • Tumors

    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

    Chronic appendicitis can occur due to many different reasons, such as:

    • Inflammation and obstruction of the appendix
    • Accumulation of fecal matter
    • Calcified fecal deposits or appendix stones
    • Trauma to the abdomen
    • Enlarged lymph nodes and glands
    • Build up of foreign objects
    • Tumor

    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.

    What complications can arise if appendicitis is left untreated?

    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:

    • Peritonitis– As the appendix bursts, the lining of the abdominal cavity or peritoneum can become infected and inflamed. This is called peritonitis which is a fatal condition. If this happens, you will have a fast heartbeat, high fever, shortness of breath, and severe abdominal pain consistently. The doctor will first have to treat the infection with the help of antibiotics. Once the infection is resolved, only then can the doctor proceed with appendix surgery.
    • Abscesses– Sometimes, abscesses may also form around the burst appendix. It usually forms when the white blood cells in the body try to fight the infection. To treat appendicitis, the doctor will first treat the infection and drain the abscess to perform an appendectomy.
    • Sepsis– In rare cases, the bacteria from the ruptured appendix may enter the bloodstream and travel to other parts of the body, causing sepsis. It will cause symptoms such as high or low temperature, confusion, severe sleepiness, and shortness of breath. It is one of the main reasons for death in appendicitis patients.

    If these complications arise, it can make it difficult for the doctor to treat appendicitis right away.

    How is laparoscopic appendectomy better than open appendectomy?

    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.

    • Tiny scars with less tissue cutting
    • Reduced post-surgical pain
    • Reduced risk of wound infection
    • Shorter hospital stay
    • Quicker return to normal activities
    • Higher success rate
    • Minimal restrictions on diet
    • Faster recovery

    Open and laparoscopic appendectomy has 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.

    Post-Surgery Care After Appendectomy

    Whether you’ve had open appendicitis surgery or laparoscopic surgery, you will have to follow the doctor’s instructions to take care of the wound and overall health. You will have to follow the tips below:

    • Take a bland diet in the next few days after having an appendectomy. Advance gradually and start eating usual food only if your body allows it.
    • You may experience constipation for a few days after surgery due to heavy pain medications. Most patients don’t have bowel movements up to 3 days after surgery. Therefore, the doctor may prescribe stool softeners or laxatives to help prevent constipation.
    • Pain is natural after a surgical procedure. Therefore, the doctor will prescribe some pain medications as well as anti-inflammatory and antibiotic medicines.
    • Usually, dissolvable sutures are used to close the wound. However, in some cases, stitches may be used. In both scenarios, keep the wound clean and dry. Make sure that you don’t soak in hot tubs or swim as it can cause irritation or infection in the wound.
    • You can take a bath the day after the surgery, but don’t let the incisions get wet.
    • Avoid driving until the doctor gives you permission.
    • Limit your physical activities and make sure that you don’t lift heavy weights for at least two weeks after surgery.
    • Wear loose and comfortable clothes that give you freedom of movement and don’t rub against the wound.
    • Visit the doctor for post-surgery follow-ups whenever required or as suggested by the doctor.

    How to prevent appendicitis?

    Generally, there is no assured way to prevent appendicitis from occurring except for diet control. By choosing the right food and a balanced diet, you will be able to keep your digestive tract healthy and prevent the appendix from becoming inflamed.

    Foods You Should Eat:

    All foods that are rich in fiber help to prevent appendicitis. These foods include:

    • Oats or wheat gram for breakfast
    • Whole wheat flour
    • Brown rice
    • Fresh fruits

    Foods You Should Avoid:

    Here are the food items that can increase your risk of appendicitis:

    • Fried foods that are fatty and irritate the digestive system.
    • Alcohol as it harms the liver and affects digestion.
    • Processed foods, such as meat or frozen food items.
    • Baked goods, including cakes, pastries, cookies, etc.
    • Excess of sugar
