What is Appendicitis?

Appendicitis is a medical condition where the appendix becomes inflamed and filled with pus, causing severe abdominal pain. The appendix is a small 3 and a 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.

Treatment

Diagnosis

The doctor will review your medical history, especially any digestive illnesses and will ask about your digestive symptoms that include timings of your most recent bowel movements, character (watery or hard), and whether the stool was streaked with blood or mucus. Then the doctor will check for pain in your lower right abdomen. After the physical examination, your doctor will order blood tests to check for signs of infection and a urinalysis to rule out a urinary tract problem. Your doctor may order an ultrasound or computed tomography (CT) scan to help confirm the diagnosis. In very young children, a chest X-ray may be needed to rule out pneumonia.

Procedure

The doctor will operate to take out the infected appendix called appendectomy. Surgery is highly recommended at the earliest As it has the potential to burst about 48 to 72 hours after early symptoms. This can spread bacteria inside the body and be fatal. There are two surgical methods used based on severity. Our doctors at Pristyn Care recommends a laparoscopic surgery.

  • Laparoscopic Surgery:Surgeon uses a small device called a laparoscope to remove the appendix through a small cut on the belly. The laparoscope has a tiny video camera and surgical tools. The tube, camera and tools are put in through the incisions. The surgeon does the surgery while looking at a TV monitor and removes the appendix. It is minimally invasive, one can get back to normal routine in 2-3 days and minimum size scar and wounds.
  • Laparotomy: A type of open surgery where one incision is done in the right area of the abdomen or in the midline to remove the appendix. This treatment is used in the emergency case of burst appendix. The surgeon could clean the abdomen and remove the appendix(Burst appendicitis) or drain the rest of the pus with the help of a tube through the abdominal wall and then remove the appendix(Appendicular abscess). After surgery strenuous activities may be avoided for upto 6 weeks.

Since Appendix is still a mystery in medical community, there are no guaranteed ways to prevent appendicitis.

What is Appendicitis?

Appendicitis is the inflammation of the appendix. It is considered a medical emergency. It needs surgery that involves the removal of the appendix. The appendix normally sits in the lower right abdomen.

The appendix is located at the junction of the large and the small intestine. Appendicitis starts with pain and within hours, the pain travels to the lower ...

right-hand side.

Although anyone can develop appendicitis at any age, it generally occurs in people between the age group of 10 to 30.

Fast Facts on Appendix

The appendix is a small, squishy organ which is tube-shaped. The job is to receive undigested food from the small intestine. It also helps absorb fluids and salts that remain after food is digested, and mix them with mucus for easier elimination. The proximity and tissue connections between the cecum and appendix recommend that the latter plays a part in the digestive process.

What Causes Appendicitis

  • Blockage inside the appendix

  • Enlarged tissue in appendix

  • Inflammatory bowel disease

  • Stool, parasites, or growths which clog the appendiceal lumen

  • Trauma to your abdomen

What are the top symptoms

  • Sudden pain on the right side of the abdomen

  • Sudden pain around the navel which shifts to the lower right abdomen

  • Pain that worsens while coughing, walking or making jarring movements

  • Nausea and vomiting

  • Loss of appetite

Prevention

There are no ways to prevent appendicitis. However, it is less common in people who eat foods high in fiber. These include fresh vegetables and fruits. If you feel the symptoms, call your doctor immediately or make an appointment with Pristyn Care for the best quality check-up and proper treatment.

Types of appendicitis

  • Acute Appendicitis:

    It occurs all of a sudden. A patient may experience an intense course of symptoms that require surgical treatment.

  • Chronic Appendicitis:

    If a patient suffers from chronic appendicitis, he or she may experience a long-standing inflammation of the appendix.

  • Recurring Appendicitis:

    This is another type of appendicitis. If the affected appendix is not removed, there are chances that it may get infected and inflamed over and over again.

Diagnosis

The doctors at Pristyn Care will review the medical history, digestive illnesses and may ask about the digestive symptoms. They may include timings of the most recent bowel movements, character, and whether the stool was streaked with blood or mucus. After that, the doctor will assess the pain in the lower right abdomen of the patient. Post-physical examination, the doctor may ask for blood tests to check for signs of infection. A urinalysis will be needed to rule out a urinary tract problem. The appendicitis doctor may order an ultrasound or computed tomography (CT) scan to help confirm the diagnosis.

The Treatment of Appendicitis in Ayurveda

If a patient has acute appendicitis, it can be treated with the use of Antarvidradi and Dhatu Pakahara Ousadhas, Ama Pachana Pousadas. In chronic conditions, it is better to refer to a hospital.

The Treatment of Appendicitis in Homeopathy

The homeopathic treatment of appendicitis entails the usage of certain homeopathic remedies.

  • Arnica:

    This remedy is used in septic cases, and after a surgical operation for treating bruises.

  • Arsenic:

    In the septic condition, when the affected individual experiences weakness and loss of appetite, Arsenic is used. Chills, diarrhea, nervous symptoms, and restlessness are also symptoms that can be treated with it. The patient may feel relief by vomiting in such circumstances.

  • Belladonna:

    It is used in the initial stages of appendicitis when the affected individual happens to experience severe pain.

The Treatment of Appendicitis in Allopathy

A doctor can manage mild to moderately severe appendicitis with antibiotics, if there are no major perforation of the appendix or complications. Patients get relief from inflammation with antibiotics but it is unclear how many patients respond to antibiotics. The antibiotic treatment entails intravenous antibiotics for two days. If the patient does not respond within 24 hours to the antibiotics, he may need surgery immediately.

Most Advanced Treatment of Appendicitis

The doctor will perform a surgical operation to take out the infected appendix. It is called an appendectomy. This surgery is highly recommended at the earliest, as the appendix can burst within 48 to 72 hours after early symptoms. This can lead to the spread of bacteria inside the body and can be fatal. There are two surgical methods for the treatment of appendix and Pristyn Care doctors recommend laparoscopic surgery.

Laparoscopic Surgery:

Surgeons use a small device, a laparoscope, to remove the appendix. They form a small cut on the belly with a laparoscope that has a tiny video camera and surgical tools. The tube, camera, and tools are put in through the incisions. The surgeon performs the surgery while looking at a TV monitor and removes the appendix. It is a minimally invasive treatment so the patient can get back to normal routine in 2-3 days and there won’t be any major scar and wounds.

Diet

After the surgery, various people recover within 2 to 6 weeks and have no major, long-term health problems. Most people do not need to change their diet, exercise, or lifestyle.
