I have kidney stones, but still having pain can it be my appendix? Ct tests show my appendix is good. I have no galbladder or overies full hyst.
Unlikely appendix: As an education for you, an appendix does not usually cause symptoms that last for days without becoming very problematic. When it gets inflamed it becomes a blocked tube and will continue to get bigger until it ruptures. Given this, a normal ct with more than a day of pain makes it unlikely the problem. That being said, the best diagnosis is a personal history and physical exam by a professional! ...Read more

Is a gall bladder flush safe for my 11 year-old? My son's appendics almost ruptured and was removed in september. At the time a gall stone showed up as well on his x-ray. I would much rather do a flush that is safe than have him go through surgery again.
There: There is nothing in authentic medical literature that refers to a "gallbladder flush." I have had several patients mention this to me and my advice is to not do this. Causing a gallstone to pass can be more harmful and dealy than not. I agree with the other surgeons taht if he is symtomatic from this then treatment would be laparoscopic cholecystectomy. ...Read more

Yes: Appendicitis is an emergency. It would need to be removed right away to prevent the infection from spreading - symptoms start at abdominal pain, nausea and fever that gradually worsen over time. You may not be able to pass gas or have bowel movement because your intestines respond to the inflammation by shutting down. If you are having these symptoms, you need to consult at the er immediately. ...Read more
