Is there a link between early male childhood (2yrs) appendicitis with complications after removal & male infertility?

Unlikely: Unlikely connection between appendicitis and male infertility. The male reproductive system is not in the abdomen where the appendix is located. Male reproductive system is located in the scrotum and penis.
