Appendicitis is an inflammation of the appendix, a 4 inch-long tube organ that extends from the large intestine. Appendicitis is a medical emergency that almost always requires an appendix surgery to remove the appendix.

If an inflamed appendix is left untreated, the appendix will eventually burst, or perforate, spilling infectious materials into the abdominal cavity. This can lead to a serious inflammation of the abdominal cavity’s. That can be fatal unless it is treated quickly with strong antibiotics. So appendix surgery is very important in this case.

Extreme and sudden abdominal pain is normally the first symptom of appendicitis.

  • Constipation or diarrhoea
  • Inability to pass gas
  • Low-grade fever and chills
  • A temperature between 99° and 102° Fahrenheit
  • Wanting to have a bowel movement to relieve discomfort
  • Stomach swelling

Symptoms in children and infants

While children and infants may not experience severe pain as older patients do, research suggests that abdominal pain is still the most common symptom of appendicitis for this age group.

Symptoms in older adults and during pregnancy

Older adults and pregnant women may also experience different signs. The stomach pain may be less severe and less specific. Possible symptoms include nausea, vomiting, and fever. During pregnancy, the pain may move upward toward the upper right quadrant after the first trimester.
