So.... on Wednesday next day my suregon examined my scar (staples.... 11 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> them with about 4 inch incision) and then I got discharged from hospital. Ywah!!!
My concern is he an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stillan> having low grade fever and lower right quad <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> ( increased <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> with eating and some activitys) My question is should the appendix be removed due to potential appendicitis in the future due to blockage causing inflam. and infection or can this resolve on it's own. My research shows majority an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> these stan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onean>s end up causing appendicitis eventually.
Hello! I had my appendix out oct'06.Dr said it was "chronic",I had mild lower right abdominal an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>painan> for awhile..had catscans,ultraounds,laparscopy,everything looked ok.For two nights I was in unbearable an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>painan> finally went to er and it showed up on catscan,surgeon told me I had a "fecal stan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onean>" (hard stool) size an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> quarter lodged behind appendix prob been stuck for months and it just took time for it to go,almost ruptured,had emergency surgery,the appendix was gangrene.
Sorry for the long response, but I can relate to your daughters problems, since I've walked that road before maybe I can be an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> some help. I know from experience an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whatan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>painan> & problems a ruptured appendix can cause. I've had a ruptured appendix and several small bowel obstructions(SBO) and multiple surgeries. I DO NOT think (as suggested above) that a Naturopathic Doctor would be a wise recommendation. There are times an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whenan> it is MEDICALLY necessary to take certain an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>painan> meds.
The Surgeon, whose nurse called me back, actually told me I should not have any more <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>>- I then told her I had a hole in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>appendix</span> and have been suffering with <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> from it for a long time. So, she made me an appt. I refuse to go to the ER but something feel different with me... my stomach is bulging out today, my entire abdomen is burning mildly, but for the past 5 days... I have had an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whatan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feelsan> like PMS boobs on my right side an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> my breast extending to my back.
I complained an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> stomach <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> and discomfort they thought i had a bad chicken pita last night, as did I. <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> 5 hours in the ER the doctor came in and pressed my lower abdomen and a few medical procedures and and hour later i was in surgery. The surgen said that my appendix had ruptured, and it will be awhile before i was back to normal. I only spent an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onean> night in the hospital and had a long recovery period ahead an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> me. Its now 5.15.08 almost 9 months since my surgery.
It's also normal to feel bloated and crampy for a while <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>. It WILL get better. If you experience extreme <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> or a very high fever, then it's time to call your doctor. As patients we aren't always well-informed as to an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whatan> to expect an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> a surgery. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whenan> the surgeon gives us a recovery time an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> say, three weeks, we expect to be 100% by that time. Not true. Those recovery times (in my experience anyway) simply mean you'll be feeling fairly human by then.
doctor and he pressed on my right lower abdomen, and I felt a <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> there. He send me to have a ultrasound. They found out that my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>appendix</span> is swallen, that an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whatan> the doctor that did the ultrasound said( not the technician). and I'm a IBS patient so that might have caused the inflammation. Is it dangerousan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>?an> Am I going to need a surgeryan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>?an> Thanks for advice.
Then around 3 weeks ago i had severe an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>painan> in my stomach and was rushed to ER with a ruptured appendix.I had to get open <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> because an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> the severity an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> the rupture.I also then had complications with my small intestine as it became lazy an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> the operation.The doctors said if i had an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> waited any longer to come in i could have easily died and that it was an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onean> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> the worst cases they had seen.anyway 3 weeks on and im feeling a bit better but an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stillan> having some digestive issues.
In July 2001 I had emergency <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> for a burst <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>appendix</span>, but once 'in'the surgeon also found an abscess the size an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> a grapefruit and that my colon had ruptured. 5 hour surgery, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onean> week hospital stay and a scar a good 12 inches long. My question - a) should I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stillan> be having stomach aches, my surgeon's english was not good enough for him to really explain my condition and my doctor just keeps giving me more an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>painan>killers and b) anyan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onean> know how on earth I can make this hideous scar less obvious.
I had gallbladder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> also.an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>painan> following surgery such as gas is normal.Stay away from spicy foods.The doctor told me to eat a bland diet for about 3 weeks.It is possible for a small stan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onean> to be lodged in the biliary duct.If you are concerned you should have an ultra sound dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onean> or a ct scan.
I had emergency surgery Tuesday morning. Just got home today. I had that severe stomach <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> again Monday and finally Monday night went to the ER. They did blood work and my white blood cell count came back at 20,000, so they were concerned and wanted to do a CT scan. So drank the stuff, waited, had the CT scan. It showed that my appendix was inflamed and they said I probably had chronic appendicitis and that was the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>painan> all along. But it didn't explain my other problems.
Its been 7 months and the <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> is horrible sometimes, i have asked about my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>appendix</span> and they shrug me an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan>f saying It wouldn't last this long! Well an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whatan> else could it be. Its always pretty much there. Coughing doesnt hurt sneezing doesnt hurt it stomach workouts dont hurt it. Nothing makes it worse. If I pushh down exactly where it hurts and i let go it only hurts a lil more. I want my appendix checkedd bc I would like to get pregnant again soon but don't want to deall with this while pregnant!
Since then i have been in and out an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> hopital 6 times with the same <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>>. My last admission was last week an i had terrible shoulder <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>>, back <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> and lower right <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>>. At first we went to the doctor's instead an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> hospital because we knew the hospital would send me home. The doc sent me straight to the hospital. The kept me in for a few days to manage the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>painan>. I have had normal blood tests,ct scans and ultrasounds which cant seem to pick up anything abnormal.
i have chronic stomach <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> on my left side into my back area,<sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> i eat it gets worse,it cramps and i have to go to the restroom an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> i go 2 or 3 times there is a little releif. but my stool is very loose and runny. a light color but no blood. i have lost about 10 lbs. over 3 month period. i do not drink but i do smoke.my stomach hurts alot.

I started going to my doctor first an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whenan> I was thirteen about this and she has not the slightest idea an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whatan> is going on. I read the tag about stomach an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>painan>s an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> tennis and my syptoms sound very similar.

December 1999 I had emergency <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> for a ruptured <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>appendix</span>. the infection was so bad it collapsed my frontal lobes and spread throughout my abdomin. It took four litres an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> saline solution to clean out and my intestines had to be cleaned outside an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> my abdominal cavity. A week or so an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> surgery I became reinfected and had to have my stitches removed so I got to watch my the hole in my stomach slowly healed.
