In brief: Days

Appendicitis is an acute illness which leads to rupture if not treated within days of it's onset.
Once in a blue moon, the body will seal off the rupture, leading to a prolonged low-level infection that can "simmer" for weeks; however, most people have so much pain prior to rupture that they seek out medical attention before this can occur.

In brief: Until fixed

Rarely it fixes itself! most will cause one to have an appendectomy.
Some perforate and cause a lot of trouble. Their are some few reported with a chronic recurring pattern and later surgery.
