Is It Normal To Hurt While Urinating 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.

An appendectomy is done under general anesthesia, which means you are asleep and do not feel any pain during the surgery.

Hello my husband had an apendectomy & I was wondering if it was normal to have blood in his urine. Not full blood but the color of blood in his urine?

I had a lap appendectomy a month ago and I have a tiny bump underneath the scar on my left. When I push or massage it, it hurts the whole side. Normal.

Generally speaking, it's ok and leave it alone as long as feeling less tender and smaller bumpy. It takes time with various pace among individuals. Meanwhile, try resisting the temptation to push it and minimize physical activity to strain abdominal muscles.
