Do I Have Appendicitis?
good night …. I want to ask, before getting married and giving birth I haven’t felt stomach pain from the middle of the stomach and then moved to the right side of the lower abdomen. but after giving birth to my first child sc I feel it, the child is now 20 mth, after being cured slowly the pain in the lower right abdomen disappears. Do I need to check the ultrasound or the x-ray? I was afraid, after I saw it on Google, and my neighbor today finished his appendectomy, after the operation he was in a coma until finally he was declared dead. please answer and the solution huh? Thank you doctor

Inflammatory disease in the appendix is called appendicitis in its medical language. The appendix is also known as the tapeworm, which is a small organ such as a worm, in the form of a hollow but appendic organ, protrusion from the large intestine. If there is stool that hardens and then enters this organ, it can clog and cause inflammation.
This disease will be characterized by abdominal pain that initially in the solar plexus, then move to around the navel and then move to the lower right abdomen. Pain that is felt in the lower right abdomen, will initially disappear, where pain will be reduced by bending the body so that the stomach is close to the thigh. In addition to pain, sufferers will experience fever, nausea and vomiting. Generally these complaints will not last long, only a matter of days. This is because complaints that are felt will make the patient immediately consult with the nearest doctor. If complaints are left alone or handled at home, they can cause conditions to get worse, where complaints become severe. This is because the inflamed appendix can rupture resulting in peritonitis, you can read the full article. Peritonitis is generally the cause of death in someone who initially had appendicitis inflammation. Meanwhile, if appendicitis can be treated operatively immediately, the patient will generally recover completely.
In connection with your complaint, there are many possible causes, such as ovarian cysts, endometriosis, gastrointestinal inflammation, urinary stones, urinary tract infections and post-SC psychological pain. For that, you may consult with your nearest doctor, and then the doctor will direct you to what specialist doctor you should be concerned with, regarding what parts of the system are most likely to experience disorders as a cause of abdominal pain that you experience. If it is most likely the reproductive system, then you will be consulted by a gynecologist, if the digestive system then you will be consulted by a specialist in internal medicine if necessary and if the urinary system then you will be consulted to a urologist.
Thus hopefully useful.
