Yes it is. As scars form, if you dont masssage them, they can harden up, and that hard tissue doesn't flex as well as your regular tissue. There are some terriffic scar alleviating ointments now, available from your doctor and also from Clinque (a cosmetic company created by dermatologists). Those, applied as per instructions, coupled with massage, may help. In extreme cases, plastic surgery can also help.

Can a ruptured appendix recur?

Possible but not probable. Ruptured appendix is almost fatal if untreated as intestinal contents seep out in to abdominal cavity causing serious infection called peritonitis and a surgery is needed to drain it and at the time of surgery appendix is removed. It is possible that there is a small "microperforation" that seals off by itself and later on the same appendix can get reinfected and rupture.

Diet, Exercise, And Gastric Band Surgery.?

In recent years, we have seen gastric band surgery become far more affordable. This surgery is now financially possible for people from many walks of life. Gastric band surgery is a relatively non-invasive surgery, due to the fact that gastric bands are removed after a set period of time. If you are planning on having gastric band surgery, you should immediately begin a serious diet and exercise regimen. Without these behavioral changes, your gastric band surgery may ultimately prove to be fruitless. In many alarming cases, individuals who undergo this surgery regain all the weight back--sooner rather than later.
