Appendicitis is the most common abdominal emergency found in children and young adults. One person in 15 develops appendicitis in his or her lifetime. The incidence is highest among males aged 10-14, and among females aged 15-19.
bacteria escape into the circulating blood
nope. you cant stitch a appendix back it would hurt too much. Also, you cant grow an appendix.
A delay can result in perforation, or rupture, of the appendix. When this happens, the infected contents of the appendix spill into the abdomen, potentially causing a serious infection of the abdomen called peritonitis.
You usually know that you have one if you have gut wrenching cramps in your right side right above your hip bone.
yes, in a case of pre ileal or a post ileal appendix, the irritation of the terminal ileum can present with symptoms of diarrhea also non obstructive appendicitis caused by an organism which causes enteritis eventually inflaming appendix can be a predominant symptom presenting initially as diarrhea.
surgery. and after wards a lot of rest.
Yes, of course you can have a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) and appendicitis. They are from different body systems. The UTI is fixed with antibiotics and appendicitis is ONLY fixed with surgery. If you had appendicitis you would get sicker every day with more pain and fever. You would know if you had appendicitis, it DOESN:T go away!
It depends on the grade of the appendicitis. Some people recover fast but in some cases the illness can lead to a complication called peritonitis (if the infection is spread through the abdomen). In this case it may take month to heal and patient must take an antibiotic.
If you are having symptoms of appendicitis you should see a doctor as soon as possible, since appendicitis can become very serious quickly. If you have abdominal pain that makes it impossible to sit or stay still, go to the emergency room.
The doctors would be most carefull not to interfere with the baby in the process.
There is always a chance of something going wrong though, as surgery stresses the body.
I do not think the chances of having a miscarriage due to removal of appendix is large.
Appendicitis is more common in male may be because of active dynamic life and specific life style, nothing approved this when it comes to evidence based medicine,also there is speculations that appendicitis affecting teen more than other group of patients because possibility of lumen's obstruction is high , again this is not supported by evidence based medicine.
The others possibility is inheritance ; appendicitis more common when member of family develop it , why this ? The only explanation is inheritance . But why it's more common in male ; again the possible explanation is inheritance.
The other possible cause is type of diet: no thing proved by research, however diet is predisposing factor , but why specific type of diet cause appendicitis ? Nothing proved by solid research.
The other possibility is genetic constitution:
Appendicitis may be under diagnosed in women because assumption that the symptoms are due to pelvic organs pathology rather than appendicitis and this makes diagnosis less in women , on contrary men with right side lower abdominal pain the first differential diagnosis would be acute appendicitis.
The other possible cause is relatively easy diagnosis in men compared to women.
The other possible cause is modern antibiotics ; use of antibiotics may abolish appendicitis in women if mistreated for urinary tract infection ir pelvic infection .
All these information are not supported by strong evidence from literature.
I hope this had answered the question

It takes hours and not days to develop the symptoms of appendicitis.
Appendicitis is pain on your right side not your left. Pain on the left could be from stomach, colon, liver, kidney stones- sounds a lot like kidney infection or stones. Call your MD- don't believe things on the internet as pain usually indicates something is wrong!
Typical Appendicitis symptoms are crippling pain on the left side of the abdomen, just under the ribs, accompanied by vomiting. Eventually the vomiting and pain will stop and the sufferer will begin to feel better. This is a bad sign as it means the appendix has burst and the sufferer must seek medical attention immediately. The symptoms you describe could be due to food poisoning or possibly a bladder or kidney infection.
No pain in the lower part of your abdomen is and fever. The pain can go on for days and get worse until one finally get that it's time to go to the hospital. It differs a bit between patients.
Yes, a headache can be one of the symptoms of appendicitis. I had appendicitis and a severe headache over a 3-day period was one of my symptoms, along with general pain in my abdomen, nausea and one bout of vomiting over the 3-day period.
Headache is the sign of a infection in your body or fever. It's not a typical symptom of appendicitis.
Severe pain in umbilical region, fallowed by vomiting is the first symptom of acute appendicitis. Shortly the pain shift to right iliac region. vomiting after getting pain in abdomen and loss of appetite is prominent symptom.
Pain in the umbilical area is there in the beginning. This pain shifts towards right lower abdomen eventually. You can have bout of vomiting. There has to be loss of appetite in almost every case.
Yes. You can get appendicitis at any age (as long as you have an appendix).
Pain, often very intense, on the right side, below and about an inch to the right of the bellybutton and just above the hipbone. The pain can radiate to the back often making standing upright too difficult. Pressure (pushing with fingers) in the area usually decreases the pain but returns when pressure is released.
Vomiting,nausea and fever are all indicators also.
This seldom cures itself and a trip to the emergency room is warranted as a burst appendix is possibly fatal.
I had appendicitis and my doctor said that I had it because of the lack of fiber in my body. So if you had appendicitis then you didn't take enough fiber as well. It also has to do with your diet. The way you eat as in how many times a day and what you occasionally eat. Nobody is really sure just what causes it. Some doctors believe it occurs when fibers or seeds irritate the appendix.
If a person has extreme pain in his or her abdomen, especially the lower right-side of the abdomen, they should seek immediate medical attention. Appendicitis cannot be treated by home remedies of any type.
An obstruction within the appendix, the development of an ulceration (an abnormal change in tissue accompanied by the death of cells) within the appendix, and the invasion of bacteria.
