Doctor sir, My brother had severe stomach pain 2 days back at around 1: 30 in the morning. We admitted him and abdominal scan revealed Acute Pancreatitis (Pancreas is Hypoechoic - Do not know what it means). The doctors told that this comes to persons mainly with Smoking and Drinking problems. He did not have any bad habits and it was the first time he had a stomach problem. The doctors told that he should be on IV for 3 days - no food, water or anything. Only fluids thru IV. The pain was pretty severe for him until the evening and at around 5, it subsided and he was Ok. He was able to relax after that and he had pain only when he stretched or doing something. He had some pain in the back as well, but it was far better than the pain he had in the morning. Until around 11, he was perfectly alright and then around 12: 00, his BP started falling and he told like people look in different color. The doctors examined him and his pulse was completely down. They revived him in ICU little bit, he was conscious, but was breathing heavily. His BP was 85-45. We had to put him in Ventilator support and by around 3: 00, he suffered a massive heart attack and he was gone. They tried for nearly 40 minutes after that, but nothing happened. I do not know how he could have died just because of Pancreatitis. Everywhere it says it will take at least 2 weeks, the organs have to fail. But, nothing of that sort happened. I would be grateful if anyone can give me some details on what might have happened, at least we can save someone else. He was only 35.

Appendicitis is a chronic or acute medical condition where the appendix gets inflamed and causes severe pain. If left untreated, the condition can prove to be fatal. The appendix is a small tube shaped sac at the end of the large intestine. In humans, it is typically not known to have any functional value although some studies suggest that it helps digestion by creating a conducive environment for friendly bacteria. Surgical removal of the appendix is suggested as the most common treatment for the ailment.
One of the key causes of appendicitis is believed to be the partial or complete obstruction at the mouth of the appendix. The common causes of obstruction include accumulation of fecal matter, worms, enlarged lymphoid follicles, trauma or tumors. It is also possible that an infection in the stomach could have extended into the appendix.
Appendix is commonly detected because of its progressive worsening pain in the stomach which narrows down to the lower right side of the abdomen is called Mc Burney point. Half of the patients though do not have this typical symptom and instead come in with a complaint of gastroenteritis, urinary tract infection or even a kidney stone. Further blood tests, urine tests and MRIs or ultrasounds are used to pinpoint the area causing the pain.
In most cases of advance appendix, a surgical intervention is necessary. The type of surgery will vary on a case to case basis.
Homeopathy can be tried in early stages and is especially useful to treat chronic and recurrent cases. It works with the principle of 'like cures like', which means that the elements that cause the problem are a key to its solution too. It employs a holistic healing methodology getting rid of the signs and symptoms and restoring complete health. While other treatments focus on curing the 'problem', homeopathy also deals with the basic reason of the problem and the individual's susceptibility to it. Here are some of the remedies:
- Arsenicum album: This is used when the appendicitis has resulted in sepsis and the patient also suffers from diarrhea.
- Belladonna: This is an early stage remedy for cases where appendicitis is accompanied by headache, fever
- Bryonia alba: This is an effective remedy when the pain aggravates with movement.
- Colocynthis: This is a recommended remedy when the patient experiences spasmodic or entwining pain, which worsens with indigestion. Applying warm pressure over the area helps in such cases
- Rhus Tox: This remedy is also called the 'homeopathic knife' to treat appendicitis. It is used when the pain is constant and the patient is never free from pain.
To customize the selection of the remedies according to your specific symptoms, it is best to consult with a practitioner.
