What is LAP Appendectomy?
Appendectomy is an operation to remove the appendix when it has become inflamed; an inflamed appendix is called appendicitis. It must be treated with surgery right away; if left untreated, the appendix could rupture (burst) and cause a life-threatening or fatal infection. surgery will be done under general anesthesia, which means that he or she will be asleep during the surgery. It will take about 1 hour, most likely he or she can go home within 24 to 36 hours after the surgery. If there is infection from the appendix bursting, then person needs to stay in the hospital from 5 to 7 days.
In many cases, abdominal problems can also be diagnosed with imaging techniques such as:
Ultrasound, which uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the body
CT scan, which is a series of special X-rays that take cross-sectional images of the body
MRI scan, which uses magnets and radio waves to produce images of the body
How is a Laparoscopic Appendectomy Performed?
You will have general anesthesia for your laparoscopic appendectomy. This means that you are asleep during surgery. When surgery is finished, the surgeon closes your incisions with tiny stitches, staples, surgical tape or glue. Once you are asleep, the surgeon makes an incision near your belly button and inserts a small device called a port. The port creates an opening that your surgeon can use to fill the abdomen with gas. This creates space to do the operation. Next, a small camera is inserted through the port. The camera shows the surgery on a screen in the operating room. Once the surgeon can see clearly, they put in more ports to insert long, narrow instruments.
Finally, they gently disconnect your appendix and take it out through one of the incisions. Most operations need 3 incisions, but this can vary from 1 (one) to 4, based on various circumstances. Your surgeon might use a surgical robot to do your operation. It is done the same way as described above. Your doctor guides the robot instead of guiding the instruments by hand. This is commonly referred to as robotic surgery. Your surgery team might put in a small plastic tube called a “drain” during surgery. This lets fluid drain from the surgery area while you are healing, so it does not build up and cause problems. Your doctor will take out the drain later. If the inflammation of your appendix is more complicated, a larger incision may be necessary to complete the surgery safely. Your surgeon will make this decision during the operation.
When the surgery is over, you’ll be observed for several hours before you’re released from the hospital. Your vital signs, such your breathing and heart rate, will be monitored closely. Hospital staff will also check for any adverse reactions to the anesthesia or the procedure, as well as monitor for prolonged bleeding.
The timing of your release will vary. It depends on:
your overall physical condition
the type of anesthesia used
your body’s reaction to the surgery
In some cases, you may have to remain in the hospital overnight. In the days following laparoscopy, you may feel moderate pain and throbbing in the areas where incisions were made. Any pain or discomfort should improve within a few days. Your doctor may prescribe medication to relieve the pain.
It’s also common to have shoulder pain after your procedure. The pain is usually a result of the carbon dioxide gas used to inflate your abdomen to create a working space for the surgical instruments. The gas can irritate your diaphragm, which shares nerves with your shoulder. It may also cause some bloating. The discomfort should go away within a couple of days.
Call your doctor in case:
Fever over 101 degrees F (38.5 C)
Severe pain or swelling in the belly
Feeling sick to your stomach or throwing up (nausea or vomiting) – Call your doctor if you cannot eat or
Blood or pus coming from any of the small cuts in the surgery area – Or redness that spreads or gets.
Pain that your medicines do not help.
Breathing problems or a cough that does not get.
You can usually resume all normal activities within a week. You’ll need to attend a follow-up appointment with your doctor about two weeks after laparoscopy.
Here are some things you can do to ensure a smoother recovery:
Begin light activity as soon as you’re able, in order to reduce your risk of blood clots.
Get more sleep than you normally do.
Use throat lozenges to ease the pain of a sore throat.
Wear loose-fitting clothes.
Less pain after surgery
A shorter time in the hospital
Getting back to normal activity faster
Having normal bowel movements sooner
A smaller scar
Infection and redness and swelling (inflammation) of the belly that can occur if the appendix bursts during surgery (peritonitis)
Injury to nearby organs
What Happens if I cannot have my Appendix removed Laparoscopically?
Some people cannot have laparoscopic appendix removal. You might have open surgery with one large incision if you are one of these people. Some reasons for having or switching to open surgery are:
Your appendix is very inflamed or there is an abscess (a large area of bacteria buildup).
Your appendix has perforated (burst).
You have severe obesity – this means being extremely
You have scar tissue in your abdomen from earlier surgery or
The doctor cannot see your organs
You have bleeding problems during
It is not a complication (problem) if your surgeon decides to switch to open surgery. They will switch if open surgery is the safest option for you. Your surgeon might not know this until after the laparoscopy starts. They will use their best judgment about the safest surgery for you.

Some of the fruit seeds swallowed are removed from the body naturally, while some of them can be the cause of appendicitis. There are reported cases of appendicitis which are caused by seeds of vegetables and fruits such as cocao, orange, melon, barley, oat, fig, grape, date, cumin, and nut.
While there are no long term dietary restrictions after a gallbladder surgery, a very small percentage of people have some difficulty tolerating fatty or spicy foods. For those who have had a cholecystectomy, you should stay away from these foods for a couple of weeks during recovery.
Appendicitis happens when the appendix gets blocked, often by poop, a foreign body (something inside you that isn't supposed to be there), or cancer. Blockage may also result from infection, since the appendix can swell in response to any infection in the body.
Your recovery time depends on the type of surgery you had. If you had laparoscopic surgery, you will probably be able to return to work or a normal routine 1 to 3 weeks after surgery. If you had an open surgery, it may take 2 to 4 weeks. If your appendix ruptured, you may have a drain in your incision.
Appendicitis may be caused by various infections such as virus, bacteria, or parasites, in your digestive tract. Or it may happen when the tube that joins your large intestine and appendix is blocked or trapped by stool. Sometimes tumors can cause appendicitis. The appendix then becomes sore and swollen.
