Apendicitis is a bacterial infection

I was experiencing lower abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and decreased appetite.
My appendix was inflamed because my body was trying to kill the infection, had I not gotten to the hospital in time my appendix would have bursted and filled my abdominal cavity with bacterial infectious liquids and killed me.
the appendix is secluded from the other organs so the infection doesn't usually spread till the appendix bursts. so its only the immune system fighting the infection. the body discovers the infection because of the build up of foreign bacteria (pathogens) in the organ

I was in the hospital for 2 and a half days and then I was moving again I haven't been sick since

Pathogen: a foreign invader in your body

Antigen: antibody "generator"

Antibody: a protein Y shaped that fights pathogens

Immune response: how your immunes system responds to an infection

Phagocyte: particles that protect the body ferom absorbing harmful pathogens
