How long can appendicitis last

Common Questions and Answers about How long can appendicitis last


Avatar f tn So my question is, is this appendicitis, or is this endometriosis? My anxiety is out of control. Could appendicitis take this long to develop? I am on Loestrin 24 (birth control) and my fever has gone away.The pain and nausea comes and goes. I've been going through this for about a year now. Please help me.
Avatar m tn It feels like cramp/bloated/trapped gas feeling. My stomach often makes rumbly/bubbly noises. My MAJOR concern is appendicitis - as I know how important it is to get the appendix taken out before it bursts. Given that my pains are not concentrated in the right and not that intense, does it seem unlikely to ne appendicitis? Could appendix symptoms drag on this long (it's coming up for a week). The pain has got no worse and if anything seems to be improving.
148354 tn?1211237506 I'm 11 years old and every month I had abdominal pain since I was 9, the Doctors thought I had bad eating habits but my dad when he was little had a really bad abdominal pain just like me and one day he got a really bad pain so bad that he couldn't even stand up or raise his leg that day they took him to the hospital and he got surgery and it was from his appendix, like most people know there is two types of appendicitis one being acute that comes and stays and you have to get surgery and anothe
405614 tn?1329147714 not something to fool with when we know how illness and MS don't get infection is the last thing you need right now honey!
148354 tn?1211237506 I've posted on symptoms forums about chronic abdominal for last 7 months,(upper and low abdominal )pelvic,rectal and back pain,lost almost 60lbs,hair loss,no appetite,nausea,fever,and just am a mess from this pain.
231441 tn?1333896366 I was admitted last Tuesday for observation of suspected appendicitis. The pain was getting worse each day. The doctors were arguing is it or isn't it. My obe was insisting they proceed with surgery (she said in pregnancy the rule is if in doubt go with surgery) and though the surgeon was reluctant he was being convinced. They decided on Wed night that I would have surgery on Thursday. Thursday morning my Filipino Mum came in and raised hell.
Avatar f tn DR Basically for the past few days I have been suffering from constant, period-like cramps in my navel area (which has not spread to the lower right area of my stomach), mild fever, nausea, dizziness, and I find the pain is slightly relieved after I eat food, however certain foods can make the pain worse. Do I have appendicitis?? Or is this just a stomach bug?? How long does it take for the pain to move from the upper stomach to the lower right abdomen??
Avatar n tn Would would case RLQ with out fever, nausea and vomitting? What is chronic appendicits and how long does it last? Can your appendix act up for many months before surgery would be involved? I ask this because I do get RLQ without fever and the other symptoms, and GYN said it wasn't gynecoligcally related. MD had sent me for abdominal x-rays which were negative. This was quite some time ago and I still experience this. Could it be due to back problem and poor posture?

Avatar f tn They did a CT scan and much to my embarrassment I was just really constipated. Can you imagine how embarrassed I was? The doctor did mention I had a few complex cysts on my ovary. I thought maybe thats why I felt so terrible. After the news we had the cysts removed. I was hopeful that this was going to give me my energy back. No go. Since then I have been diagnosed with several ailments Hashimotos, Raynauds, etc.
Avatar n tn Yes it is still from whats in us. Think how long we put the **** in us. Keep drinking fluids until your going to burst and eat good to this helps flush our systems out. Get exercise too.. Myself I hate this part but the more we exercise the better we feel.. I hope I helped some it take along time to get our minds and bodies back. But it took along time to get us where were at too.. Hang in there it does get Easier and better over TIME!!!!! Ill be praying for you. God Bless..
Avatar f tn How do you know if your doctor is on the right track? She said I was probably just getting more intense premenstrul cramps due to my age. (42) On October 31st I found myself in pain I can say I've only experienced as the first stages of labor. It started as tenderness then pain to walk and go to the bathroom and then crazy pain that almost had me black out. I might add that my husband is deployed and there was no possiblity of pregancy, though they did run a test just in case.
Avatar f tn What do you do to relieve your pain? For how long does it last? Again, I agree with you that anginal pain has most of the characteristics of myocardial infarction, but it is important to know whether you are having stable or unstable angina.
Avatar f tn They are still suggesting I come in for this shot despite me telling them I am terribly uncomfortable with it. My question is... how long did it take for your doctor to recommend the laproscopy? Did they throw you through the ringer like this? My best friend has Endo and was in surgery within a WEEK of SUSPECTING she had Endo!!
162948 tn?1205256292 My question is if that is normal once it has been removed and how long does it last. I had it in for over a year but wanted it removed because my husband and I are planning for another baby. So I have one more question, how long could it take to conceive once it is removed? and is it safe to try the first month that it has been removed?
1530566 tn?1316216807 She is in pain all the time now and I am very concerned. How can she have this lesion and still be overlooked by saying it could be psychological when we have already been told that its not?
793305 tn?1493929118 Has anyone ever said anything about Hashimoto's thyroiditis? No....Within seconds of looking at my results, that's how he diagnosed me. My antibodies were high. That had never been mentioned before. We did an ultra sound within a couple of days. That had never been done before. I have a nodule that is slightly more than 2 cm. He sent me to an endo doc within a week. She did a biopsy, which came back showing signs of cancer and she immediately set me up with a surgeon.
7014780 tn?1395591257 Wow, 312 is dangerous (same as a rat!). How long did they last? Did your blood pressure drop or was your left ventricle able to fill with enough blood to keep your blood moving? So once a week you were 220 or 4 beats/second (same as a monkey), whereas I'm sporatic 160 bpm or 2.7 bp second. Your accessory pathway in the left Atria was not close to AV node where my Cardiologist thinks mine is, which is often damaged with AVNRT surgery resulting in AV Block needing a pacemaker.
6402846 tn?1391067348 How long have you been on the Doxy? How long have you been sick? All these factors matter. If Bartonella tests are negative, there are some anti-Bart herbals that can help figure out if Bartonella is present. An integrative LLMD can prescribe one or more of them to find out. IGeneX looks at Lyme specific antibodies in their interpretation, so if IGeneX says you're positive, I'd be very confident that it's accurate. You're asking good questions! Keep doing that!
147426 tn?1317269232 question, what if they say you have ms and you believe you dont have it and you take the avonex, what can happen long term
Avatar n tn I guess I am just really stumped here. I can't imagine how a somatic illness could cause these very real symptoms that can be seen, show up on lab tests and cause so much pain. There is no way you can fake pitting edema, especially when each time it has been noted, they have checked my blood sodium and done a urinalisis. My husband and kids could easily testify to the amount of chicken breast and egg whites I eat just to try and keep my albumine level near 3.0.
Avatar m tn Hi there! I hope im posting in the right place! Well 2 years ago I had an appendicitis and i was operated to take it off.. Before that I rearly had any gas problems, but now after my operation, I started getting filled with gas.. Uptill the last month or so it was normal but now, i wake up bloated full of air, and sometimes i get sharp pains in my sides, i drink water (not exagerated but i drink), and i remain like this throughout all the day..
Avatar m tn The chest pain and palpitations with dizziness are happening more and more often, and sometimes my right foot will go numb for no reason I can think of. Oh, and one last thing, almost every evening, around or after like 7:00pm or so, I will feel weak and dizzy for no reason, and this has been happening for the last few weeks. The slightest bit of anxiety or stress, especially from my girlfriend will set off palpitations at least.
305005 tn?1358731890 Hi Thanks for writing to the forum! Endometriosis, ovarian cysts or uterine fibroids should definitely be looked for. A CT scan should be able to capture all. Adhesions in the abdomen caused by previous C-Sections can also cause pain in the lower right abdomen. A laproscopy can help diagnose this. It can be a cause not related to your uterus and ovary. It could be a case of irritable bowel syndrome. Breast tenderness can be due to fibroadenosis. Please discuss this with your doctor.
Avatar f tn If you can find one, a pain psychologist can also be helpful in teaching you ways to cope with the pain when no medication will help. You'll be surprised at how much pain a body can take and still function. Not that I'm happy about having that knowledge at all. Wish I could offer you more hope, but right now there just isn't any treatment out there to prevent adhesions and once you've got them surgery is the only way to untwist them if your bowels get obstructed.
Avatar n tn I fall between the cracks when it comes to getting assistance, so I can't get any help for this condition and my disability. I don't know how long I will last without care, or without it surgerically removed. I only have the choice to go with alternative methods, and I have faith in it, but the reality of surgery in there--all the things I can't get taken care of.
