It is the inflammation of the appendix that extends from the large intestine. It occurs when the appendix becomes blocked by a stool, a foreign body, or cancer. Blockage may also be by an infection in the body. The symptoms are: 1. Loss of appetite 2. Nausea 3. Abdominal pain and swelling 4. Fever 99 - 102 degrees Fahrenheit
HOW IS APPENDICITIS DIAGNOSED?
Once the doctor has taken a look at the inflammation, you will be put through various blood and urine tests as well as a rectal exam to diagnose the condition.
HOW IS APPENDICITIS TREATED?
A surgery is the only method to get relief from Appendicitis and it is called appendectomy. Removal of the appendix is generally practiced by all doctors. If the appendix has an abscess, there may be two procedures involved, one to drain the abscess of pus and fluid, and a later one to remove the appendix. A research study shows usage of antibiotics to be effective in cases of acute appendicitis.
