Is There A Time Limit For Getting Pregnant After An Appendectomy?
Hello doctor, I just finished surgery for appendicitis / appendicitis, here I want to ask if there is a period for getting pregnant?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Appendicitis or infection or inflammation of the appendix is one of the most common surgical cases in society. This inflammatory condition is caused by a blockage at the "entrance" of the appendix area. The blockage that occurs can be caused by the presence of feces covering the duct or swelling of the lymph nodes around the appendix. One of the measures that can be done to treat appendicitis is surgical removal of the inflammation. The recovery also really depends on the type of appendicitis being experienced. In some cases, if the appendix ruptures, infecting the entire abdominal cavity, the operation will take longer and of course take longer to heal. In addition, it is also necessary to pay attention to the body's response factors to the operation being performed, the nutrients consumed during healing and whether or not there are secondary infections that occur in the surgical wound. All of these are some of the factors that can influence recovery after surgery.
Actually there is no time limit for pregnancy after appendectomy. But it's best after 1-2 months after surgery so that the scar is completely healed. And the organs between the intestine and the uterus are organs that are not related to each other but are in the abdominal cavity. To further ascertain how long your body is ready to get pregnant after surgery, it doesn't hurt to consult directly with the doctor who treats you because you already know the condition of appendicitis and the surgery that was performed on you before. So that it can anticipate the possibilities that may occur.
That's what I can say, hopefully it's useful.
