Do You Need Surgery Again When You Have Right Back Pain After Surgery?
Doctor, I had an appendectomy in 2017, well in 2019, my back ache condition is like before surgery, what do you think about the doctor ?? Is it possible for me to have surgery again ??
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Regarding your condition, there are a number of things that need to be understood. First, the appendix cannot grow back. So if you have been operated on once by removing the appendix, it is impossible for the condition to recur and need surgery again.
Second, the symptoms of back pain itself are not symptoms of appendicitis. Appendicitis is usually characterized by pain in the lower right abdomen, or in the solar plexus in some cases, but not in the back. The condition of back pain, more suitable when associated with the following possibilities:
Urinary tract infection
Spinal structure abnormalities
So our advice is that you should consult your general practitioner first to find out the possibility of the disease through a series of historical excavations, physical examination and support such as X-rays if necessary. Treatment that you will receive later depends on the results of this examination, including if it turns out you need to be referred to a specialist.
Meanwhile, compress a painful area with a warm compress or put a patch on it, increase your consumption of water, may take over-the-counter pain relievers by reading the rules of use listed, avoiding heavy physical activity and bending, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
