Doctor said appendix

Once I went to hospital for stomach pain doctor said I have appendix he advised me for laparoscopic surgery (stayed in bed for two days they have given antibiotics and related injections) but I refused for surgery because within few day's I had my semester exam then now 40 day's ago but I don't have any pain or appendix symptoms.. What should I do now..

Hi there I understand your concern... Appendicitis is inflammation of appendix which is a vestigial organ in humans I.e it has no significant functions hence surgeons will advice surgery as recurrence are more with medical therapy... I would suggest you to consult surgeon for clinical examination and get ultrasound abdomen to see present changes in appendix they will guide you further.
