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 and 30. You can contact Pristyn Care to undergo a laparoscopic appendectomy in Gurgaon at the hands of expert doctors.

Treatment

Diagnosis

During the initial consultation, the doctor will examine your body and ask for the history of signs and symptoms to identify the cause of abdominal pain. For an accurate diagnosis, the following tests will be done:

  • Physical Exam- It is done to assess your pain. The doctor will gently apply pressure on the painful region. When the pressure is released, you may feel a surge in pain that will indicate that the adjacent peritoneum is inflamed.

The doctor may also look for signs of rigidity or stiffening of the abdominal muscles in response to the pressure applied to the region above the appendix.

  • Blood Test– It is done to see if there are excessive amounts of white blood cells in the body that will indicate that an infection is present in the appendix.
  • Urine Test– The urinalysis is done to eliminate urinary tract infection or a kidney stone as the potential cause of abdominal pain.
  • Imaging Tests– Abdominal X-ray, ultrasound, computerized tomography (CT) scan, or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is done to confirm appendicitis or find other causes of abdominal pain.

Procedure

Sometimes antibiotics can treat infectious appendix, but surgery is the most common treatment. Appendicitis is a medical emergency situation that must be treated between 36-72 hours before it gets burst. Therefore, there are two surgical approaches, open and laparoscopic appendectomies.

  • Open Appendix Removal Surgery– In an open appendectomy, the surgeon removes the organ through a large incision in the abdomen. The appendix is removed and the wound is 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.
  • Laparoscopic Appendix Removal Surgery- In laparoscopic appendectomy, a surgeon removes the appendix through one of the 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. After taking out the appendix, the small incisions are cleaned and closed using adhesive glue.

Laparoscopic appendicitis surgery is the best treatment for adults and obese people. 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 Word

What-Dr. Mohsin Khan-Say-About-Appendicitis-Treatment

Dr. Mohsin Khan

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, DNB - General Surgery

12 Years Experience

"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. "

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do after I start experiencing appendix symptoms?

If you have symptoms of appendicitis, do not take enemas or laxatives to relieve constipation: These medicines increase the chance that the appendix will burst. Also, avoid taking pain-relief medicines before seeing your doctor, because these medications can mask appendicitis symptoms and make diagnosis difficult.

How and when does the appendix burst?

Sometimes a pus-filled abscess (an infection that is walled off from the rest of the body) forms outside the inflamed appendix. Scar tissue then ‘walls off’ the appendix from the rest of the abdomen, preventing infection from spreading. An abscessed appendix can perforate or explode and cause peritonitis.

Do I need to change my lifestyle or eating habits?

Following surgery, most people recover completely 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.
