If I don't have appendticis but my appendix is enlarged and the pain isn't going away should I go back to the hospital? Will they remove it?

In brief: Possible AP

Appendicitis is not an elongated appendix.
It is an inflammatory process in the appendix frequently induced by a stone in the appendix. If the appendix is the problem an x-ray should show a stone or appendicolith , marked thickening and evidence of inflammation. WBC should be elevated and pain present on palpation of RLQ
