Removal Of Appendix (Definition)

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. An appendectomy is done under general anesthesia, which means you are asleep and do not feel any pain during the surgery. The surgeon makes a small cut in the lower right side of your belly area ...Read more

I had an appendectomy 12 days ago and I just went in today and everything looked normal but I am still having pain, especially when urinating.

I had an appendectomy 12 days ago and I just went in today and everything looked normal but I am still having pain, especially when urinating.

Wrong expectation?: It's unlikely that removing your appendix (part of the GI tract) will have fixed your bladder (part of the GU tract). Time to return to your doctor & pursue further testing/treatment. ...Read more

Urinary Infection: Cloudy, bloody urine most often means you have a urinary tract infection. Bacteria in the urinary tract can also produce bubbles in the urine. You probably need a urinalysis and antibiotics for a urinary tract infection. You an get these via a consultation with a HealthTap provider or your own doctor. If you continue to pass air in the urine after treatment, you should get a full evaluation. ...Read more

I am a 20y female. 3 weeks post up open appendectomy and removal of ovarian cysts. Is it normal to have pain while urinating?

I am a 20y female. 3 weeks post up open appendectomy and removal of ovarian cysts. Is it normal to have pain while urinating?

Pain with urination: No it is not normal to have pain with urination in this case. You were likely catheterized during the procedure and that can be very irritating and even increase risk for bladder infection. Drink tons of water, empty your bladder every time you even think you need to go. See your practitioner for urinalysis. ...Read more

Lap & open appendectomy 3 weeks ago. Still feel pain in lower center abdomen when urinates. Drain & catheter used. Urine test shows no UTI. Reasons?

Normal: There are a variety of aches and pains that come and go during the recovery period of a traumatic event such as an abdominal operation. These will eventually fade away in the coming 6-8 weeks. May have some residual. Also very common to become fatigued easily for weeks to months, but there is high variability of this. You can always check with your surgeon as well. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Lap appendectomy 3days ago. Now, when urinating, feels like tightness/squeezing in lower left abdomen.  No burning in urethra. 25 yr old female.

Maybe muscle trauma: One of the ports during appendectomy is usually placed in the left lower quadrant. During urination the abdominal muscles are tightening and the injured muscle may cause painful sensation. The other 2 ports are placed in the midline where there is no muscle. ...Read more

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?

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?

Yes but: Yes because while he was asleep under anesthesia they inserted a catheter in his bladder and took it out before he wake up . That sometime irritate the urethra and cause the color changes in the urine. If the blood does not go away or start being associated with pain or start having fever see the doctor right away. ...Read more
