Appendectomy - Procedure and Risks

What is an Appendectomy?

An appendectomy (which is sometimes referred to ‘appendicectomy’) is the surgical elimination of the organ known as the appendix. Appendectomy is mostly performed as an emergency surgical procedure, when patients suffer from appendicitis.

How is Appendectomy Performed?

Appendectomy can be performed both as an open operation as well as laparoscopically. An appendectomy is most often performed laparoscopically, if the diagnosis is in doubt, or if the patients feel that they need to hide their telltale surgical scars near their umbilicus or in the pubic hair line.

However, although laparoscopic appendectomy has its cosmetic advantages, and its recovery time is a little quicker, this procedure is more expensive than conventional open surgery.

Conventional Open Appendectomy-

In the conventional open surgery, the surgeon makes an incision which is less than 3 inches in length in the lower right section of the abdomen. Once the infected appendix is identified, the surgeon separates the infected appendix from its surrounding tissues and removes it surgically from the cecum (an intraperitoneal pouch that forms the junction of the small and large intestine). After that, the cecum is closed and is returned back into the abdomen. In the end, the muscle layers and the skin are sewn together and the incision is closed.

Laparoscopic Appendectomy (LA)-

While performing appendectomy laparoscopically, which is also known as LA, four incisions of 1 inch in length are made in the abdomen. One incision is made near the umbilicus, while another one is made in an appropriate region between the umbilicus and the pubis. The other two incisions, which are even smaller in size, are made in the right side of the lower abdomen. The surgeon then passes the camera and special laparoscopy instruments through these openings and after identifying, frees the appendix from its surrounding tissues. Next, the appendix is removed from the cecum and the site of its former attachment is sewed. The infected appendix is removed from the body of the patient through any one of the two 1 inch incisions. In the end, the laparoscopic instruments are removed and the incisions are sutured and closed. During this whole procedure, the intraperitoneal space is filled with medical grade carbon dioxide gas, to inflate the abdomen, which is released after the surgery.

Recovery Time For Appendectomy-

The recovery time for appendectomy depends on and varies with the type of procedure and anesthesia used during the surgery. While laparoscopic appendectomy can be done on an outpatient basis so that the patients can recover back at home, an open surgical procedure will require an overnight or even longer hospital stay.

Normally patients after appendectomy can resume their normal daily activities within a few days. However, for full recovery, it may take four to six weeks. Patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities during this period of time.

Risk and Long Term Consequences of Removing the Appendix-

While wound infections are the most common complications of this surgery, formation of an abscess in the area of the surgical incision and also in the area close to the removed appendix has also been noticed as an aftermath of appendectomy.

Other rare complications may include lack of intestinal peristalsis (ileus), gangrene of the bowel, injuries to the internal organs and infections in the peritoneal cavity (peritonitis).

Major long-term consequences of appendectomy include increased risks of bowel obstruction, stump appendicitis (infection in the retained portion of the appendix still stuck with the cecum) and development of incisional hernia at the site of the scar.

Acidity - 10 Ayurvedic Remedies Can Help You Treat it

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda
Ask Free Question

When there is excessive acid build-up in your body, you experience a burning sensation in your chest. This condition is called acidity.  

You feel a burning sensation in your chest, your mouth tastes sour and your throat may feel sore during bouts of acidity.  An antacid can give you quick relief, but sometimes, you might feel like it isn’t working very well for you. Ayurveda may help you in this case.

Ayurveda is safe, and it provides a natural way to heal acidity.

Here are some Ayurvedic remedies for acidity:

1. Bananas: The potassium in bananas is an excellent antidote to acidity. Eating a ripe banana can provide you relief from the discomforting symptoms of acidity.

2. Milk: The calcium in milk bars acid build-up and absorbs the extra acid produced. For best results, drink cold milk to ease your discomfort.

3. Mint leaves: Mint reduces acid production and cools the burning sensation in your stomach. Chop and boil some mint leaves; then drink the cooled solution for relief.

4. Tulsi: Tulsi boosts mucus production in the stomach and has antiulcer properties. To ease your discomfort, chew on 5-6 tulsi leaves.

5. Cardamom: Elaichi, or cardamom, is a multi-purpose remedy. It stimulates digestion, reduces stomach spasms, soothes the stomach lining and prevents excessive acid production. Just crush two pods of elaichi in boiling water and drink it for quick results.

6.  Cloves: Cloves boost saliva production, which helps in digestion and reducing the symptoms of acidity. For relieving acidity, just bite a piece of clove and keep it in your mouth. The oils released from the clove will reduce acidity within no time.

7. Aniseed: Aniseed cools the stomach lining, which reduces the burning sensation. Simply chewing a few aniseeds or saunf seeds, can bring about instant relief.

8. Cumin: Cumin stimulates saliva production, which aids in improving digestion and metabolism. You can eat cumin seeds, or boil them in water and then drink the solution for relief.

9. Ginger: Ginger improves digestion and helps absorb and assimilate essential nutrients better. It also protects your stomach from ulcers by boosting mucus secretion, which reduces the damage to the stomach lining caused by acid.

10. Amla: Also called the Indian gooseberry, amla has high amounts of vitamin C in it, which helps in healing the agitated lining of the stomach and oesophagus. You can consume one teaspoon of gooseberry powder to prevent acidity.

Regarding the Gases / hard stools & back head pain etc, since the problem had become so much that I decided to go for "Lipo endoscopy" surgery for my Hiatus Hernia, last year in Oct 15 thinking that this was the root cause of all my symptoms, but unfortunately, all my efforts of surgery went in vain and the problems are same or rather bad as they were couple of year back in Renukoot or earlier. Since there was No relief from surgery, I again visited a Good Gastroenterologist, in Bhopal, in Dec 2015, who prescribed the following medications-- Diagnosis--(IBS/post operative case of Hiatus hernia/Painful defecation/Also he advised Psychiatric help) Pantose-D (before B/F) Cap Velgut depof 37 (morning) medigas axiwill (night) But again No relief as usual and I stopped his medicines. You would recall my symptoms as reported to you in Renukoot @ Sept/Dec 2007 and there after on mails. By & large all the previous symptoms still persists and I have never come out of the same ever, as on date. Your Diagnosis was--Hypertension/Hiatus hernia/IBS Medications were Amplopress-Z 1OD Tenoric 1OD Serlift 25 mg 1OD cap omez-D 1BD Mucaine gel Altiva-D, then replaced by Alerid-D and finally Feliz S plus in the night After I left Renukoot since I was not directly in touch with you, lately I tried Homeopathic. The good homeopath also tried various good medicines for last 1 year or so particularly for Lower GI tract and to increase the mortality of rectum for removing the trapped Gases/hard stool in the large intestine ,but unfortunately they are also not working for me. Hence I am back to the square one. My current symptoms are by & large the same as you saw in Renookut. Rather it has taken more sever form. My daily routine has come to a standstill and not able to go to work anymore. I am at home only trying to somehow get rid of the stupid health problem Symptoms as on date Severe back head pain/biting sensation at the time of wake up Severe sprain/strain/biting in neck and shoulders/entire back. Almost the whole day In Fact the whole body suffer through strain/muscular sprains and biting feeling.(while gives temporary relief with head or full body massage). Heaviness over the eyes Gases/Bloating/belching starts severe after B/F till Lunch time Very weak feeling as long as the stomach is bloated with gases--between B/F and Lunch the trapped gases do not come out at all creating all the undue pressures on neck/head etc Hard stools in colon--very difficult to defecate Dryness of mouth /lips Too much lethargy--don't feel like doing anything. Feels like only lying down in bed or taking frequent naps across the entire day /very sad mode. Don't feel like talking to anybody or going out or do any activity. This feeling is giving me fears of how I will sustain my Job or continue working. Please note that the problem starts in the early morning since wake up and persists the whole day. It is severe since early morning and peaks till Lunch. after Lunch I am forced to go to bed lying down pressing the pillow on stomach side, so as to expul the trapped gases since last night/morning. Feel slightly better after the gases comes out in 1 hour of lying down in bed. The story doesn't end here. The 2nd cycle of Lunch gases starts build up and gives the same symptoms. Again & again. So the 24 hr cycle continues. After trying various medications over a period of long time---I feel I have got depression clubbed with Lower GI severity where in gases/hard stools are trapped and creates all the issues. Please Let me know your diagnosis and suggest the best medication to get rid of this chronic problem Once for all. I am taking the following medication now-- Pentose-D-before B/F (since I do not have any acid reflux, please let me know whether this medicine is needed or not.) Nebistar SA 1OD cardace 1OD Lipvas 20 mg for cholesterol Feliz S plus in the night Aloe vera Gel with fibre-2 times/day Note--{As long as the stomach is Bloated & is full of gases, the back head/neck and shoulder is terrible and the moment the gases evacuate/expelled the head/neck/shoulders etc become completely light, Hence it will be very important to focus on how to eliminate the bloating/gases/hard stools/and symptoms of strain/depression} Look forward to your valuable advice immediately.

What are the different symptoms of heart attack, cardiac arrest and stroke?

Many people put cardiac arrest, heart attack and a stroke in the same category. But all these conditions differ in symptoms, severity and background. Making a difference between these three health issues is really important, in order to know how to help a patient and how to prevent any of the conditions becoming more severe. To learn and educate yourselves more, read the full explanation of these conditions below:

1. Heart attack

This represents a circulation disorder. In case a person's blood flow is blocked or oxygen deprived, the blood does not get to the heart muscle and if left untreated immediately, could kill the organ. It is important to know that the heart is still working, when someone suffers a heart attack.

2. Cardiac arrest

This condition is known as an electrical disorder. When someone's electrical activity in the heart is disrupted, tachycardia happens and the blood flow immediately stops moving thought the body. When this happens, the heart stops working altogether.

3. Stroke

This is also known as a brain disorder. Strokes are divided into three types:

Ischemic stroke- when the artery carrying blood and oxygen to the brain is blockedtransient ischemic attack (tia)  also familiar as a mini stroke; it occurs when there is a short artery blood flow to the brainhemorrhagic stroke- this represents a ruptured artery inside the brain

Heart attack symptoms:

Here are the most common symptoms that can indicate heart attacks:

(angina) burden inside the chest, mistaken for indigestion. It repeats every few minutes. body pain- especially in the neck, back, abdomen, jaw, arms (particularly the left one) wheezing and shallow breathingcold sweatingdizziness and fatigue episodesanxietycoughingnausea

Treatment for these symptoms is usually via medication and incorporating a healthy diet.


Cardiac arrest symptoms:

These symptoms often occur minutes before cardiac arrest happens. Here they are:

Weakness black out fainting shallow breaths chest pain excessive palpitation

In some cases the person can also identify the following symptoms:

Sudden collapse shortage of breath weak or no pulse little or no responsiveness

Cardiac arrests are dangerous, because the symptoms occur rapidly and are usually lethal.


Stroke symptoms:

Nausea blurred speech face, arm or leg numbness or paralysis (especially on one side) headaches and vomiting mental disorientation, forgetfulness of names and places, distraction and loss of concentration impaired vision and double vision excessive sweating walking issues and dizziness transient ischaemic attack (tia)
