should i get the surgery???
i might have appendicidous, but my docter isn't sure. he said i should get the surgery but i dont know im only 12 years old and my parents said the decision is up to me.
Additional Details
for all u people who said i should go with the surgery, you are dumb.
they did another ultra scan and it turned out that i had an ovarian sist that bursted, and i have 2 other sists luckily i don't have to get surgery but i will have a severe amount of pain over the next couple of days.

You must do more research or ask your parents to ask the doctors more questions. In this modern day world, we have little mirrors than can enter your body to show up the problem clearly. Have that done first so you won't have surgery needlessly. However if it proves that your appendix
is a problem, then have it removed right away. Must be sure
when you do something, no matter what.

Well i wud like to add that sure surgery is not done based on doubts, but age does not matter in such cases of appendix, its always a first do if u do have the problem.Don't take a risk, get urself properly diagnosed and go for surgery.Its important as u rightly said that ur sister almost died.I m a medical student...not a doctor yet still an year to go but i hope u take that seriously.

Just Me
Yes. The appendix is not needed and it's better to be safe than sorry. A ruptured appendix is dangerous.

Just Me
Yes, do it!

i would say find another dr if your dr is saying he is not sure it is appendicitis... they should know yes or no before you get the surgery cause what if you get it done and it is not what they said it "may" be

but if it is apendicitis then YES do the surgery my lil bro was in the hospital for 2weeks cause his apendix burst and the infection from it almost killed him

get yourself checked out by a different dr right away this is not something that should wait

Cracker Jack 4
You'd better check out another doctor and your parents are negiience in telling you that it is up to you.

Smiley Girl
I would get it just in case. My sister had her appendix burst and she almost died.

better to be safe then sorry

There is no other cure for appendicitis but surgery. However, you have tomake sure that it is indeed appendicitis otherwise, you perform the surgery and still not find the solution to your problem. A lot of symptoms of appendicitis may be seen in other disease conditions. Urinary tract infections and gynecologic problems may present symptoms similar with appendicitis.

Appendicitis usually have these signs and symptoms:
decreased appetite, fever, right lower quadrant pain especially on walking or coughing (cough sign), pain upon pressing your right lower quadrant (direct tenderness), pain on the right lower quadrant when you press your left lower quadrant(rovsing's sign)...

I assume that your physician has performed these tests on you. If he is sure that it is appendicitis then you go for the operation. REMEMBER: Surgery is your only way outof appendicitis...

Don't worry, it's just a very short procedure... less than an hour, usually 15-30 minutes.

Are you kidding? I would see another Dr. How could a Dr be recommending surgery to remove something when he "isn't sure"? As far as your parents letting a 12 year old make the decision, I have some concerns about that. GET A SECOND OPINION!!!

I think you should do what's best for you. What do you want to do. I know you might be scared but when you get the surgery you can't feel a thing plus you're asleep. I think you probably should just to be safe.

yes you will feel 100% better

do it

The Grand Inquisitor
Yeah, okay...have it removed.

You may have appendicitis but be sure to get a second opinion before you commit to surgery, what kind of doctor says he does not know or isn't sure and still wants to perform surgery. You parents should know better than to let you make this type of decision, this is major surgery nothing to make light of and you should be sure before you make any decision. Shame on your doctor and your parents to make a 12 year old make this kind of decision, you decision should be to get a second opinion and follow the advice of your doctors and your parents.

go 4 it, you will feel better

Appendicitis is an inflammation (often with infection) of the appendix and is relatively simple to diagnose and I'm not sure why your doctor isn't sure. Appendectomy is a safe procedure and millions have been performed. If you do indeed have appendicitis sometimes antibiotics are used to fix it. But if your doctor feels that surgery is the best way to treat this then not having the surgery could be dangerous. Your appendix could rupture (burst) and the infection inside can spread throughout your abdominal cavity. This is called peritonitis and it is a serious conditon that can kill if it's not taken care right away. You will be asleep for the appendectomy and when you wake up you will still be sleepy. This is because of the anesthesia given to you to make you sleep and keep you from feeling pain during the procedure. When it wears off, your tummy will be sore and you'll need to stay home for a few days and rest. You'll get medicine to make the pain go away. I know this is a hard decision for you to make but if this is causing you pain you will feel better after having surgery and your appendix will never bother you again. I see that you've had lots of answers to your question but I'm not sure why medical jargon is being used (this kid is only 12, guys! Why are you showcasing what you know??) There is a surgery called laproscopy. It means a tiny cut is made in your tummy and the doctor can take a peak to see if she or he really needs to take your appendix out. Talk this over again with your mom & dad because I think you need to make this decision together, okay?
