I have just had my appendix removed. Do I need to change my diet until the post-surgery pain improves? Is 'gurgling' or trapped wind common post-op?

I have just had my appendix removed. Do I need to change my diet until the post-surgery pain improves? Is 'gurgling' or trapped wind common post-op?

Very common, post op: Your diet post appendecomy should be soft and bland with slow advancement to a more normal diet. Post surgery 'gas' and 'gurgling' is normal. Surgical removal of the appendix causes the rest of the small/large bowel to act irregular and irritable. This should slowly regain a normal flow pattern. Avoid heavy foods with high bulk. Avoid gas forming foods. Add probiotics, yogurt. Avoid constipation. ...Read more

I had my appendix removed 4 months ago and I still have bad pain in my side when I move. Do you have an idea what it could be? The hospital didn't know

I had my appendix removed 4 months ago and I still have bad pain in my side when I move. Do you have an idea what it could be? The hospital didn't know

Just a thought: But if your appendicitis was diagnosed "late" the infection in your appendix may have spread to a local lymph gland which "trapped" it but is still "REACTING" to the trapped organisms.
It should SUBSIDE eventually!
I would suggest an PELVIC MRI if your pain is that "bad"

Hope this helps
