Yes, usually fine: Eating eggs is totally permissible for those that do not have an appendix, if it was removed for acute appendicitis. On rare occasion, undiagnosed intolerance or allergy to eggs can result in a misdiagnosis of appendicitis.

No.: An appendectomy is one of the most common and straightforward operations performed by general surgeons. The risk of surgery is primarily related to the overall health of the patient.

No surgery is without a risk, but if there are no contraindications to surgery with general anesthesia, it is an indicated procedure in this case. The tumor, if present, may be too small to be detected by imaging studies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
