Appendicitis is a common illness but can be a life threatening one if the appendix ruptures/bursts.
Appendicitis is an inflammation of the appendix. It happens when the worm-like organ attached to the large intestines (appendix) is inflamed which can burst afterwards if not treated by surgically removing it.

Removing the appendix doesn't cause any issues for the body, it's especially seen as giving a pass to eat anything one desires! The surgery is usually a quick one without side effects if no severe damage has been done otherwise (in cases where it bursts) it becomes a life threatening.

There are symptoms to watch out for:

1. Pain in the navel

Appendicitis comes in form of pain around the navel area, moving to the lower right side of the stomach with pain getting worse with cough, bumpy movement and so on around the stomach.

2. Fever and rising temperature

Sometimes appendicitis comes with high fever and rigor and severe pain making movement almost impossible.

3. Severe pain in the lower abdomen

Each passing moment, pain gets severe around the abdomen. It becomes so intense that it's almost crippling especially with every movement.

4. Nausea and Vomiting

If nausea, vomiting and overall loss of appetite with low right side abdominal pain is common then it's time to see a doctor especially where it gets worse with each day.

5. Tenderness on the abdomen

If you push on the lower right of the stomach and feel pain when releasing the pressure (known as rebound tenderness used to check for appendicitis) , then it's time to seek medical help as it may be appendicitis. If you notice this pain, DO NOT try again afterwards.

Don not get stuck at the well of argument. Let God be your vindicator. Let Him fight your battles. He will vindicate you better than you can vindicate yourself.
