The appendix is a small, finger shaped pouch of intestine that extends from the first part of the large intestine. It is found in the right lower quadrant of the abdomen. Appendix has no known function in our body and therefore its removal causes no problems to the patient.
Sometimes the stool gets entangled into the appendix and causes inflammation of the appendix. This causes severe pain in the right side of the abdomen. If the appendix ruptures and the patient develop peritonitis, the doctors would be prescribing antibiotics. Our surgeon will need to drain out the infected material and disinfect the abdominal cavity. The pain of appendix is felt in the right side of abdomen and a simple ultrasound is done to diagnose the condition of acute appendicitis. The appendix pain is sometimes very severe and if the appendix ruptures it may pose danger to the life of the patient.
If you feel pain in the middle of the stomach or right lower side of the stomach just above the hips then it could be due to inflamed appendix. In such a situation one must immediately consult a qualified doctor preferably a general surgeon. Appendicitis can be quite easily diagnosed on clinical examination by a general surgeon. For confirmation of the diagnosis, an ultrasound of the abdomen or CT Scan can be done. The pain of appnedix should not be ignored as the appendix can rupture and that can put your life in risk.
Appendicectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the appendix from the abdomen. It can be performed either with a small incision on the abdomen or laparoscopically (key hole surgery or a minimally imvasive surgery done specifically by trained surgeon). Appendix pain is generally very sharp and can happen to all ages. Adults as well as children can have this pain and may need surgery. In case of children a paediatric surgeon is the ideal choice for surgery.
Laparoscopic Appendectomy is a common surgery and carries only a small risk of complications. The Laparoscopic Appendicectomy or appendix removal surgery means making three or more tiny openings less than a centimeter in size across the lower part of the abdomen. The appendix is freed and taken out through one of the openings. The openings are then closed by a single stitch or skin glue. Hospital stay is just 1 to 2 days and recovery period is also very short in case of Laparoscopic Surgery.
