Some Symptoms to Determine Appendicitis
Risk Factors of Appendicitis
Appendicitis in an uncontrolled risk because...
•You cannot control weather a piece of feces gets stuck in the appendix or not.
All of the above can plug the appendix causing it to swell and be diagnosed as appendicitis.
Your doctor will check for...
•Blood test for infections
People that eat foods that are high in fiber (like fruits and vegetables), are less likely to get appendicitis.
Copping with Appendicitis
If you took medicine that your doctor didn't prescribe, then that could make matters worse. So just try to manage it or try not to think about it on your own and that would help.
You have two choices:
•Number 1: Surgery
•Number 2: Antibiotics.
There is no way to prevents appendicitis but if you eat foods that are high in fiber (like fruits and vegetables) then you are less likely to get appendicitis.

During the process of the surgery with appendicitis, the surgeons can do two different surgeries. They can either do an open appendectomy or a laparoscopic appendectomy. (Go to the link below and find out what those are.)
When the surgery is done, you will be moved to a general hospital if you are able to breath on your own. You might be able to go home after 24 hours or before if you are doing well.
