You must have suffered from common tummy-troubles like diarrhea and constipation in your life. Few of you must have also faced the wrath of food poisoning. But if you are a part of the really unfortunate 5 percent of the people, you will end up with appendicitis.
However, the onset of the disease doesn’t mean the end of the world. With timely diagnosis and treatment, you can cure the problem and get back to your regular life.
Appendicitis is the inflammation of the appendix which is a pouch-shaped organ attached to the large intestine. Though not every case of appendicitis is life-threatening, an untreated inflamed appendix can rupture and put the patient in critical condition. Therefore, the longer the state remains unchecked, the greater the threat there is to the life of the patient.
