Recovery Time After Appendectomy?
I want to ask, when the appendix operation was painful or not ..? r nHow long does it take to heal after surgery …? r nThank you
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Appendix surgery is an operation that is performed as a form of treatment for those who have inflammation of the appendix. Appendicitis is a condition in which the appendix which is located in the lower right area of the stomach becomes inflamed due to a blockage, it can be caused by dirt or food scraps or swollen lymph nodes.
Regarding your question, during surgery, not only appendectomy, even minor / minor surgery which only takes a few minutes in the clinic will also be given an anesthetic injection to relieve pain. When you get to the operating room later, anesthesia is one of the first things done before an incision is made in your abdomen. The anesthetist or anesthetist will monitor and make sure you are under the anesthetic so that you don't feel anything. So what you know next is that you are in the recovery room and the operation is over.
For healing depends on each individual. But if everything goes well and there are no complications whatsoever, then usually within 3-5 days at the most, or sometimes even less, you can go home. After the operation, you will be advised to increase your consumption of protein-rich foods such as eggs, milk, yogurt, cheese, tempeh, tofu, and chicken breast to help speed recovery. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
