Can I Masturbate After An Appendectomy
An appendectomy is surgery to remove the appendix. The appendix is a small, finger-shaped organ extending from the first part of the large intestine. It is removed when it becomes inflamed or infected. A perforated appendix can leak and infect the entire abdominal area, which can be life-threatening.

I want my appendix out so I know I will never get appendicitis. What can I do to get an appendectomy?
About to shower for the first time after my appendectomy. Do put new bandages on the stitches (dissolvable)? It was laparascopic.

The earlier that appendicitis is diagnosed and treated the less likely you are to have complications from surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
