Avatar m tn 15 months later after an ACL surgery he developed an abscess above his kidneys which they said was related to the appendectomy. They removed one abscess and drained another one and sent him home on IV antibiotics. A year later after ACL surgery on the other knee, he ended up with another abscess which they drained and did another round of IV antibiotics. Now, a little less than year he is pretty sure he has another abscess. No surgery this time.
Avatar f tn ve never needed in my life such as Albumine and Insulin. Is this commonplace after an appendectomy or was I suffering from malnutrition.

Avatar n tn CT abdomen and pelvis 10/1/2012.

Avatar n tn My 9 year old had a Appendectomy a month ago and after a week in the hospital he's still not having much physical activity and still reating for the most part. This morning he started having a bad stomach ache and it's been off and on all day. Could this have anything to do with his Appendcitus?
Avatar n tn 2 weeks after the appendectomy, I was re-admitted for an abscess in my lower abdomen, about the size of a grapefruit, it was drained successfully (5 more days hospitalization), and I believe it hasn't come back - the hospital did a CBC blood count test a week after I was discharged and it turned out normal. I don't "feel" the pressing abscess anymore. One problem that hasn't really gone away is the dull tenderness and heaviness I have in my mid abdomen.
Avatar m tn Male 56. Appendectomy age 5. Abscess same area-botched appendectomy. Inguinal Hernia repair 5 years ago. Lower right side discomfort, 1 year. Comes and goes at first. Now chronic. Better but not gone on empty stomach. Gets worse with fatty food. Abdominal Ultrasound in the last 3 month. Gall bladder clear. Slightly large liver w/ 2 non specific hepatic lesions. Large spleen. Those two signs due to hereditary spherocyctosis. Diagnosed by coombs and osmotic fragility test.
Avatar n tn X-ray and CT scan completed on Oct 26 and found abscess on his lower abdomen pelvis area size of tennis ball. Docs say they cannot reach there to drain so they just put him in IV antibiotic (Zosyn) and IV fluid. The antibiotic is given every 6 hours. He can’t (not allowed) to take food/drinks by mouth. When we asked the doctor about draining the pus out he said your body will absorb it. My friend is stable with pain med, gets diarrhea. I am concerned they are not taking the abscess out.
Avatar f tn You can even ask them if they did the second surgery and procedures to clear up the post-appendectomy infection and abscess that I described that they should have done. Let us know what happens.
Avatar m tn I think i may have shaved that area once after that... and then they shaved it for the appendectomy... and when i took the surgical tape off, it did seem that the bumps had worsened a bit. Do all antibacterial creams require prescriptions? Just wondering.
338416 tn?1420045702 Just had an emergency appendectomy last week. After a day of vomiting, I checked myself into the emergency room and got my appendix taken out last Thursday. Urinary incontinence, chronic constipation, and appendectomies just don't mix all that well. Having a non-MS related ailment can really take it out of you - and you don't know if the problem is the MS, or if it's the appendectomy!
Avatar n tn m 41yrs old, in reasonable fitness and health but have been diagnosed with a ruptured appendix and have had a drain/antibiotic therapy to clear up the infection and abscess. The appendix will be taken out in 4 weeks' time. What range of physical activity should I carry out in the interval? Would there be a risk of causing damage by lifting, bending, moderate gym exercise etc ? Thanks..
Avatar f tn If you had perforated appendix, recovery is usually slower and more likely to develop an abscess or other complications such as fistula, abscess, blockage of the intestine, peritonitis or infection of the surgical wound. If the symptoms persist, it is best that you check with your doctor for proper evaluation. Direct physical examination and additional tests may need to be done also. Take care and do keep us posted.

Avatar n tn s time to get another opinion. Because after 2 months and she is still not healed, then something else is going on. It is possible that she could have developed an abscess underneath her incision that prevented it from healing properly; it could be infected. If your current doctor isn't willing to help her, then find another one ASAP.
Avatar n tn I ran across this forum by accident. I was looking up possible appendectomy complications. I sure hope somebody out there can help me! I had an emergency appendectomy three weeks ago today after going to the ER with severe lower abdominal pain. The surgeon told me there was alot of free blood and debris in my lower pelvic/abdominal area, but that the appendix only looked bad on the outside - the inside was fine. After five days in the hospital, I was sent home without complications.

Avatar f tn I am a 47 year old female who has been having severe lower right pelvic pain sporadically for 5 months. I had a total hysterectomy at 28 due to endometriosis. Five years after that, they found it again in my pelvis and removed it. I had an appendectomy when I was 16. The pain I have now is very similar to the endometriosis. It lasts from 5-20 minutes and is very severe. I can hardly breathe through the pain. While it is happening you cannot touch even the skin on the area.
