I can understand your concern, you should have attached the ultrasound abdomen reports along with this so that we could have given a better opinion.
anyways, if it comes as acute appendicitis, then you need to consult the same doctor for further management or if he is not a surgeon, consult a general surgeon near you for further management.
next time when you post questions, kindly do remember to post the reports also along with it.
you can find best general surgeons near you using this same practo app.

You should consult a surgeon if you have swollen appendix. Mild swellings and infections can be dealt with antibiotics and can be reduced.
