Couldn't find what you looking for?


Hi I am suffering from a very slight pain around my belly button.The only symptom of apendicitis i heard so far.

So is it the first stage of apendicitis ?

Till how many days can the operation be post poned in general case of apendicitis.

Need the response ASAP.

Thanks in advance

hey, abdominal pain can be caused by many things especially gas. if that is the only symptom you have i would not worry about it at this point.

Other symtomes of appendicitis include:
Dull pain near the navel or the upper abdomen that becomes sharp as it moves to the lower right abdomen. This is usually the first sign.
Loss of appetite
Nausea and/or vomiting soon after abdominal pain begins
Abdominal swelling
Fever of 99° F to 102° F
Inability to pass gas
Almost half the time, other symptoms of appendicitis appear, including:

Dull or sharp pain anywhere in the upper or lower abdomen, back, or rectum
Painful urination
Vomiting that precedes the abdominal pain
Severe cramps
Constipation or diarrhea with gas

this info can be found at web md.

Like i mentioned above that pain, unless it worsens or persists for several days shouldnt be cause for alarm. just keep an eye on it.

hope this helps :-)
