Appendix Surgery

Appendicitis is a serious medical condition that requires surgical treatment – appendix surgery. It can be either minimally-invasive ( laparoscopic appendix surgery) or general appendix surgery.

After your laparoscopic appendix surgery, you are supposed to follow a certain diet to recover quickly. Today, Varanasi Hospital, one of the best laparoscopic surgery hospitals in Varanasi will touch upon this topic.

Here is an insight into what you can eat and you must strictly not eat right after your laparoscopic appendectomy.

You can consume
• Boiled vegetables
• Peeled and mashed fruits
• Boiled rice
• Khichdi prepared with only salt, turmeric, and oil.
• Pulses water or daal ka paani
• Porridge or dalia or oats
• Vegetable and chicken soups and stews
• Low-fat dairy and its products
• Fresh coconut water
• Freshly prepared salad
• Fresh fruit and vegetable juices.

You must not consume the following:

Spicy Foods

Laproscopic

Foods with a lot of spices and chillies will disrupt your digestion which will further interfere with your recovery.

Fried And Fatty Foods

Laparoscopic

Fried and fatty food items take a long time to digest, definitely not a good choice post laparoscopic appendix surgery.

Outside Food

Laparoscopic

Outside food is a sure big no because you don’t know what the food item actually contains and how it is prepared. As soon as you get discharged from the hospital, make homecooked meals your friend.

Full-Fat Dairy Products

Laparoscopic

Drinking milk is not bad but drinking full-fat milk and its byproducts can create additional digestive issues post laparoscopic appendectomy.

Alcoholic Beverages

Laparoscopic

Never drink alcoholic beverages after your laparoscopic appendix surgery. Drinks that contain alcohol do no good to your body, you must avoid the consumption of alcohol if you want to recover early.

At Varanasi Hospital, we offer laparoscopic appendix surgery to patients in Varanasi with the availability of cashless hospitalization. Our expert team of laparoscopic surgeons will ensure that you receive the best medical treatment.

 

Everything You Need To Know About Laparoscopic Appendix Surgery

Like any other laparoscopic surgery, laparoscopic appendectomy is minimally-invasive. Appendectomy is the surgical procedure performed by the medical professionals to treat appendicitis or in other words, remove the inflamed appendix from the patient’s body.

The removal of the appendix can be either partial or complete depending upon the severity of the patient’s case. Laparoscopic appendectomy is gaining prevalence recently due to its various advantages over conventional appendix surgery.

We have mentioned some advantages of laparoscopic appendectomy below:

• Minimally-invasive or smaller incisions
• No scars
• Less pain
• Early discharge
• Quick recovery
• Early return to normal life.

Laparoscopic appendectomy cannot be performed in all patients. Here are certain conditions that call for an open appendectomy.

• Obesity
• Ruptured appendix
• History of any abdominal surgery
• Severe infection
• Bleeding issues.

Procedure of Laparoscopic Appendix Surgery

 

Now, let’s come to the entire surgical procedure of laparoscopic appendectomy. Since it’s a minimally-invasive surgical method, the laparoscopic surgeons will make three incisions of near about ½ inches size in the patient’s abdomen to insert the necessary surgical instruments (which include laparoscope, a tiny camera) required for the operation. The entire surgical procedure is conducted with the help of a computer monitor which shows the images of the patient’s abdomen sent by the laparoscope. After completion of the surgery, the laparoscopic surgeons close and dress the stitches in a usual fashion.

Discharge after Laparoscopic Appendectomy

 

The patient can return to his or her home within 1-2 days after surgery. However, the patient needs to get regular follow up appointments from the respective medical professional. The patient will get a complete recovery in a matter of 1-3 weeks.

Precautions after Laparoscopic Appendix Surgery

 

To get quicker recovery and early return to daily activities, you need to follow certain precautions after surgery.
• Take plenty of rest
• Avoid exhausting physical activities, like moving the furniture, lifting something heavy, running, cycling, etc
• Take good care of the surgical incisions
• Eat healthy food and fluids.
