Appendicitis pain after surgery

Common Questions and Answers about Appendicitis pain after surgery


Avatar f tn My son took her to the hospital and they do not understand how she had been dealing with the pain that she was having. They took her into surgery about a week ago. My son told me they also took out a portion of her small and large intestine. My son is in the Air Force and they are in Hawaii, so this is a military hospital. Yesterday, 3/30 he told me she was feeling better, but they took her for a CT scan and after that she started to feel poorly again.
Avatar f tn today morning at 5 i had swear pain i went to the doc, they asked me for blood test, urine test n ultrasound, urine test showed some sign of appendix but ultra sound didnt, they sent me home n gave some pain killers! now i am developing the same pain again after about 20 hours, so i want to ask can it be appendicitis even if ultrasound doesnt show it?
272729 tn?1194280557 My question is- has anyone had appendicitis-- and what were your symptoms? I don't want surgery, but I don't particularly want my appendix bursting at any moment either.
4186692 tn?1350826888 Then to reassure me she ordered an ECG which was fine. After that I focused on my appendectomy recovery. Now Day 5 after surgery and the pain is fading. I am more mobile every day. I'm looking foward to walking further and building up my fitness again. After speaking with the hospital Dr I feel confident that I won't have WPW problems.
Avatar f tn I had a strange, still unexplained, episode of extreme belching, abdominal pain (shallow pain, not deep inside), and mild fever. I feel perfectly fine now, 10 days after the episode. I am trying to figure out what the ailment really was. Day 0: For dinner, I ate reheated leftovers from the previous night, which included mushrooms, chick peas and kidney beans. I had no gas the previous day. Day 1: I had slept late and woke up late. Had a late breakfast.
Avatar n tn The next day, the stabbing pains had been replaced with a dull, intermittent (from every three minutes to every four hours) pain. I called my doctor and he asked me to come and see him. After seeing him, he referred me to A&E to see the surgeons about possible appendicitis.
Avatar m tn my appendicitis size is 7mm in my report but i am getting pain for every 3 months, the pain last only for 2 to 3 hrs and it decreased rapidly after any vomting or motion. should i use antibiotics or surgery is required.
727090 tn?1268842948 I could not get comfortable no matter what position I tried to take. The pain was making that impossible. Finally a few hours after I had arrived they had a conclusion, that I had appendicitis and called for a surgeon. By the time he showed up and explained what they would have to do, I didn't even care anymore. I was so miserable I just wanted them to knock me out and get it over with. They did the surgery and I had an inflamed, enlarged appendix that they removed.
Avatar m tn Honestly it sounds more likely that it's something like your gallbladder. (especially if the first pain occured after eating something kind of fatty.) You need to talk with a gp to make sure that you're gall bladder isn't acting up. If it is it means a strict diet change and possibly surgery.
Avatar f tn Absolutely not that doesn't go away. Iv had mine out and iv had that pain and that was after.
Avatar f tn For the last five days I have been having pains in my back, kidneys, right side, right side abdominal pain, pain near my belly button, pelvic pain, pain right next to my hip bone, headaches, and nausea. I'm still able to pass gas, and eat, walk and jump without pain, and when my stomach is pushed on there is no pain. I have been to the doctor multiple times for pains like these, I seem to get them each month.
Avatar f tn I told him my pain wasn't near my ovary and to please forget I'm a woman and look for a hernia. After 2 more days of increasing pain he decided to humor me and ordered a groin ultrasound. It showed my appendix had enlarged. A surgeon consulted me, said he wasn't convinced it was appendicitis but he'd do the surgery as a diagnostic laparoscopy. By then I had excruciating pain accompanied by left shoulder/neck pain.
Avatar n tn on it because it's only been discovered in the last 3 years according to my doctor. He repaired it and after recovering from the surgery THE PAIN WAS GONE!! You might want to ask your doctor to look into this. I tried to find information on the internet to learn more about it but found NOTHING. I guess it's just SO newly discovered that there's not much to write about. Anyway, hope this gives you another avenue to explore. Good luck!
148354 tn?1211237506 I don't believe them and am sure that I experienced chronic appendicitis. I am 8 weeks after surgery, and have no pain and lots more energy. Interesting thing the doctor told me was that he had a hard time finding the appendix. It was shorter and stubbier than expected; about half of the normal length.
Avatar n tn My initial symptoms were severe pain on my side. We did a CT scan to determine it wasn't. I ended up with 2 CT scans while pregnant. One over my abdomine and one of my head.
Avatar f tn with a Thai CSW. Exactly 4 weeks after the exposure I was hospitalised with appendicitis which was removed via laparoscopic surgery, recovered normally. Then about 1 year after exposure I had a small area just above my liver which had a rash very similar to shingles, however it was painless so I am unsure if it actually was or not. The rash subsided by itself after 14-21 days. What would be your thoughts on HIV infection and the appendicitis was caused by lymphoid hyperplasia during ars?
Avatar n tn Additionally, is menstruation sometimes delayed after an appendicitis or other surgery? ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear Leighanne: Crohn's disease can infrequently present as acute appendicitis. The findings at surgery in these cases are similar to yours: an inflammatory mass that encompasses and includes the appendix.

Avatar f tn they eventually resolved into an acute appendicitis attack at the age of 12 which needed very prompt surgery. I think until your mystery pain's resolved, you ought not travel to anywhere that you're not near to an emergency surgery facility.
231441 tn?1333896366 The gastro doctor this morning was trying to tell me, yes you had appendicitis, but that doesn't mean that the three months of preceding pain was from that! Come on! Pull the other leg!!! The right sided pain is gone. What a relief! The recovery from the surgery has been very painful. They did a laparotomy (big incision) cause they wanted to have a good look around.
329994 tn?1301666848 It showed that my appendix was inflamed and they said I probably had chronic appendicitis and that was the pain all along. But it didn't explain my other problems. Still, it had to come out. It was supposed to be laparascopically and they started that way, but turned out my appendix was bad but that wasn't what was the worst of it. I had a foot long section of my small intestine that was scarred and twisted and had to come out.
231441 tn?1333896366 Their theory is that there was a subclinical infection causing both the colitis and the appendicitis and it became full blown after the surgery. Have had very little nutrition for a week now. Still on IV fluids and gatorade/pedialyte... supposed to be on soft diet but can't face food without retching now, and even water makes me nauseous. So still here and still hanging on. The surgical pain is manageable. Though retching with a new abdominal incision is agony!
405614 tn?1329147714 I had a lot of stomach pain once after surgery, because I was trying to take and anti-inflammatory to reduce the pain without using so much oxycodone. My gastro put me on 60 mg. of Prevacid a day instead of 30, which pretty much took care of that. Phenegrin; is that the anti-nausea drug I get sometimes when I'm anesthesized? Sounds familiar. I ate my favorite granola this morning, and my stomach swelled up.
Avatar n tn What is pain like after having an appendicitis? 33 year old male. Laser surgery. Pain seems to be excrutiating, even after 31 hours have passed. Running a fever, no appetite. Appendix was not ruptured. Any help is appreciated.
Avatar n tn The area where she had surgery is swollen and she is in extreme pain (even after taking prescribed medication). I have advised her to seek another doctor, perhaps something went wrong during the surgery.
Avatar f tn I am a girl. So it has been almost 3 months after my appendix surgery, and my gynecologist while examinating me said I have huge adhesions. It affected my bladder (at least that's what she said). Soon I am seeing my boyfriend and I was wondering - is it possible that sex will be painful? I know appendix is not in gyn area, but if it's true that it got over my bladder, a little, then maybe it can be a trouble with sex. Is it common?
