In this episode of Doctor's Talk we discuss with Dr. R K Mishra about appendicitis (inflammation of Appendix) The appendix is a sac-like structure attached to the large intestine that has no known purpose. Appendicitis (inflammation of the Appendix) begins with fever and pain near the belly button and then moves toward the lower-right side of the abdomen. This often causes nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite and fever. Appendicitis is usually treated with antibiotics and surgery is required within 24 hours of its diagnosis. If left untreated, the appendix can rupture and cause an abscess or systemic infection (sepsis). For more information visit https://www.laparoscopyhospital.com/
