Appendicitis

Appendicitis occurs when the appendix becomes blocked, often by stool, a foreign body, or cancer.  Blockage may also occur from infection, since the appendix swells in response to any infection in the body.


Symptoms of Appendicitis:

 

  • Dull pain near the navel or the upper abdomen that becomes sharp as it moves to the lower right abdomen
  • Loss of appetite, nausea and/or vimiting soon after abdominal pain begins
  • Abdominal pain swelling, Fever of 990 F to 1020 F, Inability to pass gas


Did you know


Report to your doctor if you have the previously described pain.  
Do not eat, drink, or use any pain remedies, antacids, laxatives, or heating pads, which can cause an inflamed appendix to rupture.
