What is an Appendectomy    

 

An appendectomy is the surgical removal of the appendix. It is a process that is usually carried out on by surgeons during an emergency involving an appendix pain and fever.

 

The appendix is a small pouch that doesn’t execute any functions within the body. It is vulnerable to disease as a result of the accumulation of faeces, bacteria, and other substance and is near the large intestine.

Should it become infected and cause pain and fever to the patient, a physician will usually recommend removal of this appendix.

 

You are suggested to get post-operative care for appendectomy once the surgery is completed to avoid any type of risks and threats. We offer nursing care plan for a post-operative appendectomy.

Following surgery, the patient is brought to the post-anaesthetic care unit before the anaesthesia wears off. In this period, the nursing team checks to breathe in intervals, heart rate, and fever. Signs stabilization and after the anaesthesia wears off, the individual is moved to their own hospital room. Post op appendectomy unit ensures that the patient’s well-being is never compromised. Post-operative care after appendectomy is performed by the team of professional Nurses.

 

Unruptured Appendix

For the appendectomy patients whose appendix is unruptured, the recovery period is fast. Once the patient tolerates liquids, solid food is introduced. If that is tolerated well, the intravenous is removed but may be used if the patient is in pain and cannot eat and drink. Physical activity, like getting out of bed, starts on precisely the exact same day as the morning after or surgery. Most patients need drugs to alleviate the pain. The incisions of a process cause pain that is less compared to the incision.

The post-op appendectomy nursing team continues to monitor the patient and see if the incision is healing. Patients with surgeries leave 1 or 2 days after surgery.

After at home, the individual should check the incision site. It needs to be dry and the wound needs to be closed. If pus or blood oozes or if there is Increasing pain, fever and soreness in the incision site, this should immediately be reported to the doctor.

Normal activities can be resumed in a couple of days, but it takes 4 to 6 months for complete recovery. Strenuous activity and heavy lifting ought to be avoided during the recovery period. If there is a pain, pain medications may be consumed as directed.

With time, the wound recovers and leaves a couple of inches long scar on the side of their abdomen. However, scarring from an appendectomy is minimal.

 

Ruptured Appendix

Recovery from surgery for a ruptured appendix takes more time because the condition of appendix rupture as well as the resulting infection within the abdomen must be treated as well. If any complications develop, the hospital stay is 4 times or more. Until the puss stops draining, the drain stays in place, and the dressing is changed by the nursing team. Antibiotics are given throughout the hospitalization period.

Oral antibiotics have been prescribed and must be obtained as directed when discharged. The gauze and drain pack stay in place, and directions are given on upkeep of the region. It is necessary to alert the doctor when the colour and consistency varies, or if the number of drainage increases. Once the infection has resolved, the drain is removed on an outpatient basis.

 

Going Home following an Appendectomy

Most patients are discharged within 24 hours of operation to keep recovering from the operation. The incision is generally held closed using little strips of glue that will slowly drop off as the individual pops and goes in their normal pursuits. Internal sutures will gradually dissolve and don’t have to be eliminated.

Pain medicine may be needed by some patients and many will continue to take antibiotics for up to a week. Patients can go back in a few weeks.

Patients are still recommended to get post-operative nursing care for appendectomy to be under the care of professionals.

 

Post-Operative Directions

 

  • Action – You will feel tired for 1 week. Take your pain medication as required to remain pain-free.  2-3 times walk every day is necessary for healing. This can reduce the danger of blood clots after surgery. You might use the staircase as necessary if you’re not weak or dizzy. Ensure someone is with you for the first couple of times you use the staircase or workout post-surgery.
  • Driving – Don’t drive until you have got doctor clearance. Unless advised otherwise, you can drive once you can respond in a crisis and after your trip. You shouldn’t be taking pain medications stronger than normal acetaminophen at the time of your driving, nor if you have got a lot of pain since this will impact your ability to respond immediately.
  • Lifting / Coughing – Repeat 10 deep breaths every hour and two coughs each hour for at least 12 hours a day, for the initial week following the operation. This may reduce your risk of pneumonia or lung issues. Don’t lift heavy items greater than 3 kgs or so for your initial 4 months. Avoid abdominal, pulling or pushing strain for these 4 months. When coughing, make sure you put a cushion over the incision and lightly press inward to decrease the pressure (from coughing) in your incision.
