No one knows what fraction of acute appendicitis patients have appendicoliths (just that it is higher than normal) or how many patients with appendicoliths eventually develop appendicitis. ...Read more
Separate issues: If you have a "bad appendix and liver" then you should take appropriate actions to help yourself and smoking weed is not one of the things that you should be doing.
