Are you tired of the unexplained pain in the tummy? Have you experienced a loss of appetite and you are wondering why? Do you suffer from constipation, diarrhea and vomiting and none of the medicines have worked yet? Chances are that you may be suffering from appendicitis. Appendicitis is an inflammation of the appendix which is a 3 1/2-inch-long tube of tissue that extends from the large intestine. No one is absolutely certain what the function of the appendix is. One thing we do know: We can live without it, without apparent consequences.
What Causes Appendicitis?
In many cases, the cause for appendicitis is unknown. There can also be multiple causes for any one case of appendicitis. Doctors believe that one cause of this condition an obstruction in the appendix. Obstruction may be either partial or complete. Complete obstruction is a cause for emergency surgery.
Major symptoms of appendicitis:
- Pain around the belly button
- Lower right side abdominal pain
- Loss of appetite
- Inability to pass gas
- Abdominal swelling
- Low grade fever
- A sense you might feel better after passing stool
Appendicitis Treatment Procedure :
Treatment for appendicitis varies over different cases. In rare cases, appendicitis may get better without surgery. Treatment might involve only antibiotics and a liquid diet. In most cases, however, surgery will be necessary. Appendectomy is the surgery which will depend upon the details of your case. If you have an abscess that hasn’t ruptured, you may receive antibiotics first. Your doctor will then drain your abscess using a tube placed through your skin. Surgery will remove your appendix after you’ve received treatment for the infection. If you have a ruptured abscess or appendix, surgery may be necessary right away. A doctor can perform this procedure as open surgery or through a laparoscopy. Laparoscopy is less invasive, making the recovery time shorter. However, open surgery may be necessary if you have an abscess or peritonitis.
