  3. Growths inside the Appendix
  4. Abdominal injury or trauma
  5. The hole where the appendix joins to the intestines is blocked

Appendix is characterized by severe abdominal pain in the lower right abdomen, which is where your appendix is situated. Symptoms often appear out of nowhere and worsen with time. They are as follows:

  1. Swollen belly
  2. Diarrhea
  3. Constipation
  4. Inability to pass gas

You’ll be asked to describe your symptoms and receive a physical examination. A blood test to check for infection may be ordered by your appendix specialist in Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad. You may also be subjected to an imaging scan. Any of the following tests may reveal symptoms of obstruction, inflammation, or organ rupture:

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) produces comprehensive pictures of abdominal organs using radio waves and magnets.

Computed tomography (CT) Scan images depict cross-sections of the human body. They make use of X-rays as well as computer technologies.

High-frequency sound waves are used in abdominal ultrasonography to produce pictures of organs.

A sick appendix might explode if it isn’t addressed. An infection caused by a ruptured appendix can lead to serious disease and even death. The following are some of the complications:

  1. Abdominal infection – If the infection spreads across the abdomen, peritonitis can be fatal. The burst appendix is removed and the infection is treated via abdominal surgery (laparotomy).
  2. Abscess – An appendicular abscess, or a pocket of infected pus, may form. Drainage tubes will be placed in your abdomen by your appendix specialist in Pune. These catheters are used to drain the abscess fluid before surgery. The draining procedure may take a week or more. Antibiotics are taken at this period to prevent infection. You’ll undergo surgery to remove the appendix when the abscess is gone.
  3. Sepsis – Bacteria from a burst appendix can enter your bloodstream and cause infection. If it develops, it can lead to sepsis, a life-threatening illness. Many of your organs become inflamed as a result of sepsis. It has the potential to be deadly. It necessitates hospitalization and treatment with powerful antibiotics.

The majority of persons who have appendicitis require an appendectomy. It is used to remove an appendix that has become infected. Surgery avoids the rupture of the appendix and the spread of infection if it hasn’t already ruptured. Antibiotics are given intravenously (IV) to prevent infection before surgery. Antibiotics alone can help some mild instances of appendicitis. If surgery is required, your appendix specialist in Pune will keep a tight eye on you.

When the appendix ruptures, surgery is the only option to get rid of the infection. Most appendectomies are performed laparoscopically if surgery is required. Laparoscopic treatments are performed through tiny incisions using a scope. This minimally invasive procedure allows you to recuperate more quickly and with less discomfort. If your appendix ruptures, you may need significant abdominal surgery (laparotomy).
