  • 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 Kolkata at the hands of expert doctors.

    Treatment

    Appendicitis 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 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

    Benefits of Undergoing Advanced Appendicitis Surgery in Kolkata

    Laparoscopic surgery for appendix removal or laparoscopic appendectomy is performed under general anesthesia, which means that the patient would be asleep while the surgery is performed. In laparoscopic surgery for appendix removal, a laparoscopic surgeon makes 2-3 small incisions near the belly button and inserts a port which creates an opening and fills the abdomen with gas. Since the abdomen is inflated with gas, the surgeon gets space to perform the surgery well. The surgeon then inserts a laparoscope that has a tiny camera attached to it inside the abdomen. The camera guides the surgeon to view inside the abdomen, which the surgeon can see on a monitor. The surgeon locates the appendix and removes it through one of the incisions.

    The results of a laparoscopic appendectomy may vary from one person to another depending on several factors. But, in general, this procedure is considered to be the safest of all forms of surgical treatment for the removal of an appendix. Benefits of laparoscopic surgical removal of appendix include:

    • A shorter time in the hospital
    • Getting back to normal activity faster
    • Less pain after post-surgery

    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.
