Right Abdominal Pain When Pressed, A Sign Of Appendicitis Recurrence?
Hello … I want to ask … so this is 5 months ago I got appendicitis, I was given antibiotics by the doctor, after 4 times my appendicitis control has healed, well today I press my stomach that’s the right side it hurts, ,, what I ask is that a sign of my appendix recurrence?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The appendix is a part of the intestine located in the lower right abdominal cavity. As the name implies, this part of the intestine does not have the other end so that if there is leftover food or dirt that enters it, there can be a blockage that causes inflammation. This inflammation then causes a person to experience appendicitis.
Among other factors that can cause appendicitis are gastrointestinal infections, injury to the stomach, tumors in the stomach, growth of parasites and obstructions to the door of the appendix cavity. However, the exact cause that someone can experience appendicitis is still uncertain.
Regarding your question, it's true that the appendix condition can be chronic and recurrent. This is because your previous handling did not involve surgery. Recent research suggests that appendicitis no longer has to always be treated with surgery and can with the use of antibiotics. So because the appendix is still there, the incident could be repeated again.
Even so, you also have to realize that although the pain sensation is the same, pain in the lower right abdomen can occur due to many things, such as urinary tract infections, kidney stones, bladder stones, pelvic inflammation, cysts, and so forth. Our advice is that you should consult a doctor first to be able to ascertain which of the possible diseases that best represents your condition.
In the meantime, what you can do is to warmly compress the area of pain and the consumption of painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs that are sold freely by reading the rules of use listed. Do not hold urination and drink plenty of water. If the pain is increasingly unbearable, accompanied by fever, cold sweating and other symptoms, do not hesitate to immediately consult a emergency room at the nearest hospital. So, hopefully answering your question.
