Hello. Good night. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.


Appendectomy or appendectomy is a surgical operation to remove an infected appendix or appendix (appendicitis).


After the appendix operation will be given drugs such as antibiotics and pain relief to prevent infection and increase patient comfort. Some that must be considered for treatment after surgery are

Keep the operating wound dry (do not touch water) and clean to avoid infection in the wound. So it is best to cover the wound area with plastic when going to a shower or avoid splashing water directly into the body. Perform wound control according to a predetermined schedule. However, if the gauze gets wet from seepage such as blood or pus, go to the nearest health facility.
The skin suture thread will be removed at the time of control (usually after 1 week) if the wound is dry and the skin closes properly.
Take the prescribed medication according to the rules. Finish the antibiotics that have been given
Avoid strenuous activities such as sprinting, lifting weights, jumping too high especially in the first week after surgery
Be alert for signs such as fever, excessive fluid / blood from the surgical wound, severe pain in the surgical wound, continuous vomiting, unable to eat and drink, no farting and defecation at all, or continuous diarrhea. If you experience these things immediately consult a doctor.

Related to the presence of beats it should be noted whether these beats look like bowel movements or as if they are filled with fluid, are there any symptoms that need to be addressed as stated above. Some things that can be complications from surgery are

- Intestinal obstruction (part of the intestine is blocked so that it appears intestinal movements but will be accompanied by symptoms difficult to defecate and fart, and usually with pain)
- Abscess (will look like a lump felt with fluid in it which will usually be painful, felt hot)

If the beat is still there for up to 3 days in the future or accompanied by symptoms that need to watch out, you should immediately go to the doctor and better to the doctor who handled it yesterday so that you can know the history of the pain experienced and the procedures that are carried out so that it is more sustainable.


Thus the information we can convey. May be useful. Thank you
