What Is Appendicitis?
Appendicitis is the inflammation or infection of the appendix. The appendix is a narrow, finger-shaped pouch that sits at the junction of your small and large intestines.
What causes Appendicitis?
1
Blockage in the appendix due to hardened stools or a foreign body
2
Intestinal worms
3
Abdominal injury or trauma
4
Inflammation in any part of the digestive tract
5
Enlarged lymphoid follicles
6
Abnormal growths in the digestive tract
Sudden pain in the lower-right side of the abdomen
Pain that begins around the navel (umbilicus) and drifts to the right side

Nausea and vomiting
Abdominal bloating
Loss of appetite
Low-grade fever (between ​​99.5 °F to 102.2 °F)
Inability to pass gas
Physical Examination: The painful area is examined by applying gentle pressure and checking for rigidity
Imaging Techniques: X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, and abdominal ultrasounds are advised to detect inflammation of the appendix
Blood Tests: A complete blood count (CBC) is prescribed to detect any bacterial infections
Urine Analysis: Rules out other potential causes of your symptoms, such as urinary tract infections and kidney stones
Pregnancy Test: Rules out an ectopic pregnancy, a pregnancy that happens outside of the uterus

Surgical options
The standard treatment for appendicitis is the surgical removal of the appendix. Appendectomy is usually an emergency surgery and can be performed by the following ways
  • Performed under general anaesthesia
  • A large incision is made in the lower-right side of the abdomen
  • The appendix is accessed and removed with the help of surgical instruments
  • If the appendix has ruptured, the abdomen is washed with saline and a small tube is placed for draining the excess fluid
  • The incision is closed with stitches or staples
  • Performed under local or general anaesthesia
  • Multiple small incisions are made near the belly button
  • A cannula is used to inflate the abdomen with a harmless gas to improve visibility
  • A laparoscope, a thin flexible tube with an attached camera, is inserted through the incisions along with other surgical instruments
  • The appendix is located and removed
  • A drain may be placed in the abdomen for a few days to remove excess fluid to avoid postoperative complications
  • The incision is closed with stitches or staples
  • A type of laparoscopic surgery
  • Robotic hands perform the surgery, controlled by the surgeon at the console
  • Lower risk of infections and blood loss
  • Faster recovery time and shorter stay at the hospital
Medications have a minimal role to play in the treatment of appendicitis

FAQs
The exact function of the appendix is unclear. It is said to have played a role in regulating digestion.
Yes! You can live a normal life after the removal of your appendix, as it has no significant function in your body. You will not require any dietary restrictions or medications once you have completely recovered from the surgery.
Appendectomy is performed by a general surgeon, a laparoscopic surgeon, or a gastrointestinal surgeon.
A laparoscopic appendectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that is done with smaller incisions. Compared to an open surgery, the procedure is shorter and recovery is faster.
After an appendectomy, you have to follow your doctor's instructions carefully for a faster recovery and to avoid any complications. You need to take sufficient rest, have a high-fibre diet, drink lots of fluids, and avoid strenuous activities. It takes two to four weeks for complete recovery, after which you can resume your normal activities.
There is no specific way to prevent appendicitis, but you can reduce the risk by making few dietary modifications. A fibre-rich diet is known to reduce the risk of appendicitis. It includes foods such as
1. Fresh fruits and vegetables
2. Legumes such as beans and lentils
3. Whole grains such as wheat or oatmeal
Appendicitis can affect anyone. However, it is more common in those who have a family history of appendicitis. It is also slightly more common in males.

I’d definitely recommend Practo Care for their support at every step of my pilonidal sinus treatment. The doctor was highly experienced and the surgery went well. The team took care of everything from day one to the day of discharge very efficiently.
