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 typically starts with pain around the navel. Within hours, the pain travels to the lower right-hand side, where the appendix usually lies and becomes constant and severe as the inflammation worsens.

Although anyone can develop appendicitis at any age, most often it occurs in people between the ages of 10 and 30. At Pristyn Care, we have the finest doctors and medical coordinators who will take care of you until you are relieved.

Diagnosis

You may not think about appendicitis immediately as the symptoms like constipation or diarrhea and vomiting can be caused by a number of 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 which must be treated within a few hours before it gets burst. There are two surgical approaches open and laparoscopic appendectomies.

In 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 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

In our Doctor’s Words

Most people dont 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.
