Frequently Asked Questions

What is Appendicitis?

Appendicitis is a painful condition that occurs due to infection and swelling of the appendix. It starts as a mild pain near the navel and progresses towards the lower abdomen causing severe pain.

Some of the symptoms of appendicitis you might experience are:

  • Mild pain or cramping near the navel which moves down to the lower abdomen

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Diarrhoea

  • Constipation

  • Low fever

What are the dietary restrictions to be followed after appendicitis?

After the surgery, you should eat foods that are easy on the digestive system. Having indigestion after the surgery is not good. Some of the foods that you can include in the diet are:

  • Soups and juices

  • High fibre food

  • Fruits and vegetables

  • Avoid fatty, sugary food

How is appendicitis treated?

Based on the swelling and infection in the appendix, the doctor will recommend the treatment. If the situation is not critical, the doctor will give you antibiotics and keep you on a liquid diet. However, if the situation is critical, immediate surgery is required.

How is appendicitis treated?

Appendicitis is treated by laparoscopic surgery and open surgery (appendectomy).

What is the recovery time for laparoscopic surgery for appendicitis?

It takes 2-3 days to recover from laparoscopic surgery for appendicitis.

Can appendicitis reoccur after the laparoscopic procedure?

The chances of recurrence of appendicitis after laparoscopic surgery is very low.

How is the laparoscopic procedure of appendicitis done?

Laparoscopic surgery for appendicitis is performed through small incisions made in the abdomen.

  • The patient is given general anaesthesia for the procedure

  • Three small incisions are made in the abdomen

  • A tiny camera is inserted into the incision

  • The camera footage is visible on a screen that guides the doctor to perform the surgery

  • The appendix is removed through one of the incisions

  • Infection

  • Injury to adjacent organs like the small intestine, bladder or ureter

How is traditional/open surgery for appendicitis done?

The traditional procedure involves a large cut made in the abdomen which is sutured after the procedure is complete. When the appendix has burst, this surgery is preferred as the entire abdominal cavity needs to be cleaned.

  • Patient is given general anaesthesia for the procedure

  • A large cut is made in the abdomen

  • The appendix is directly removed from the incision

  • If the appendix has burst, the abdominal cavity is cleaned and then, the cut is sutured

When can you resume normal activities after an open surgery for appendicitis?

After an open surgery for appendicitis, one can resume normal routine after 4-6 weeks of the surgery.

The procedure involves a large cut. So, some of the risks may be:

  • Injury to surrounding organs

  • Infection of the colon

  • Excessive bleeding

  • Infection of the surgical wound

  • Blood clots related to the longer recovery period after open surgery

  • Risks of general anaesthesia
