A patient Suspected With Appendicitis

What are the symptoms?
The symptoms of appendicitis are variable enough to make diagnosis difficult at times, even for the most experienced of doctors. Usually, the symptoms come on quite quickly, often within 24 hours of the onset of inflammation of the appendix.

The principal symptom is severe abdominal pain, which usually stars as vague discomfort around the navel but becomes sharper and more localized during the course of a few hours. If you have appendicitis, you will probably feel pain in a small spot in the lower right part of your abdomen (the site of the inflamed appendix) . Even slight pressure on the spot will increase the pain. You also will feel feverish, will have nausea and may actually vomit. In addition , you will lose your appetite; and you may either be constipated or – less likely –have diarrhea. If you have a dull, recurrent pain in the lower part of your abdomen , this may lead you to suspect thatb you have what is sometimes called a “grumbling appendix”. However most doctors would agree that there is no such condition.

How common is the problem ?
Every year, about 1 person has an attack appendicitis. Anybody of any age may be affected but the disease is rare among children less than 2 years old.
What are the risks?

Appendicities presents very little risk as long as the condition is diagnosed early. One risk is that the sufferer may think, in the early stages of the problem , that the pain is caused by gastroenteritis or constipations and take a laxative;purgative medicines can cause an inflamed appendix to burst (perforate). There is also a chance that the swollen appendix will burst if treatment is delayed. When the appendiz burst, the contents are discharged into the abdomen and the likely result is peritonitis. But it is possible that the momentum , a flap of tissue that covers the intestines, will envelop the inflamed appendix, cordoning off the area and preventing the spread of infection. When infection is localized in this way, the result is an appendix abscess.
