Left Abdominal Pain After Appendicitis?
good afternoon dokdok I want to ask, I after appendicitis, why does my stomach hurt on the left, exactly near my hipbone?
Good morning, thanks for the question
Appendectomy is a surgical procedure to remove an infected or infected appendix or appendix, which is called appendicitis. Without surgery, the appendix may rupture and expel the germ meterial into the blood and the abdominal cavity which can be life threatening.
The appendix organs are specifically located in the lower right abdomen, so that complaints of pain are mostly found in the area. Complaints of left abdominal pain are caused more by disorders of the intestinal organs than the appendix. Complaints of left abdominal pain can be found in the history of laparotomy surgery, for example in cases of appendix that has ruptured, because of the greater risk of complications.
If complaints of pain are persistent or even tend to be burdensome, you should consult a doctor to be able to do further evaluation.
That's all, hope you can help
