I had an appendectomy and was out of hospital within 24 hours. I took the car to the hospital so kinda had to drive home. It was slightly uncomfortable but not too bad. Just try not to go over too many bumbs!
She will drive soon! :)
An appendectomy is the removal of ones appendix?
Appendix. An appendectomy is the operation to remove the appendix.
Yes, appendectomy is excision (surgical removal) of the appendix.
The same as before an appendectomy. aA balanced one.
As long as the scar is healed then there is no reason why you can't swim after an appendectomy
The abdominopelvic cavity would have to be opened for an appendectomy.
Append- is the root in the term appendectomy. The suffix -ectomy indicates surgical removal.
The suffix "itis" means inflammation. The root word "append" stands for the appendix. Therefore, appendicitis is an inflammation of the appendix, which is located in the lower right side of the abdomen (right lower quadrant). If appendicitis is confirmed by a physician, it must be removed surgically as soon as possible.
The appendix is ventral (in the lower right quadrant of the abdomen in humans) and this an appendectomy would be performed ventraly.
"Status post appendectomy remote" means the patient had her appendix surgically removed, but not recently.
