Appendicitis is a frequent and common digestive disease, which causes severe infection in the abdominal layer, if not treated in time.
Usually, pains associated with appendicitis start and go frequently, but if you are suffering with continuous appendicitis pain, you should immediately consult a doctor for appropriate treatment at the right time.
Surgery that includes removal of the appendix is the most common treatment for serious appendicitis.
The surgical removal of the appendix can be done either as an open technique or with the aid of a camera in abdominal cavity. Here are a few self-care measures you should follow after surgery:
- Talk to your doctor about the diet that you have to follow after the surgery and follow his suggestions.
- Avoid infection by taking proper anti-oxidant fruits and vegetables like broccoli and oranges.
- Don’t drink milk directly; instead try to take vintage milk toast or bread along with milk. This can help you to prevent nausea after surgery.
After removal of appendix or after surgery, you may experience a few unwanted health issues like nausea, pain, vomiting, etc.
However, your doctor will recommend you use a few medications to get better relief from the side-effects of surgery. Apart from medications, following these simple steps will increase your chances of a quick recovery.
