"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. "
If you have signs and symptoms indicative of an appendix, you can initially consult with a primary healthcare provider or a general physician. But you experience an increase in the pain near the belly button or if you start vomiting suddenly, it is best if you consult a laparoscopic surgeon who is an appendix specialist. You can consult some of the best appendix doctors at Pristyn Care.
All the appendicitis specialists working at Pristyn Care-associated hospitals prefer to treat an appendix, in both regular and emergency conditions, through laparoscopic surgery. In this procedure, the surgeon makes tiny incisions and inserts a laparoscope. Using the device, the surgeon removes the defective appendix and seals the incisions.
The total cost of appendicitis treatment in Jamshedpur may range from INR 45000 to INR 65000. The price, however, may differ from person to person depending on factors like the consultation fee of the doctor, the severity of the appendix, the hospital charges, and other miscellaneous expenses.
Most doctors and patients prefer laparoscopic surgery for appendix removal over open surgery solely because of its advantages. The benefits of laparoscopic surgery such as a shorter surgical process, quicker recovery, no long downtime, make it much easier for the patient to recover and get back to normal life without any risk and complications.
Here are some signs that mean that you need emergency treatment for appendicitis:
Most of these symptoms are associated with a ruptured appendix. Therefore, you will need emergency treatment.
An appendix may not cause not always cause severe complications. But in some cases, the appendix may burst and cause life-threatening complications.When the appendix bursts, the peritoneum or the appendix lining may get infected with bacteria. This condition is known as peritonitis where the bacteria lining may spread and infect other parts of your abdomen too. Now the question is, how will you identify the condition of peritonitis? Common symptoms of peritonitis include:
To prevent these potential complications, it is crucial to consult an appendicitis specialist at the earliest.
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-
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 –
It 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.
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 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.
