A disease that kills the goddess

Some time ago, star Wu Yanzu boarded the hot search, not because of the release of new itineraries, new works, but because of illness and almost died. According to Wu Yanzu’s self-report, at first he was only vomiting and diarrhea. After the local hospital examination, the doctor prescribed an ordinary stomach medicine for him, but after the symptoms of diarrhea became more and more serious, there was a strong abdominal pain. Wu Yanzu, who could not stand it, went to the hospital again to find that the cecum had ulcerated. broken”! From the time of illness to treatment, Wu Yanzu lost 13 pounds.

Appendicitis or appendicitis?

In fact, the “cebitis” in the news is not rigorous. Dr. Qin Xuchang, an emergency department of the Sir Run Run Shaw Hospital affiliated to Zhejiang University School of Medicine, said after reading Wu Yanzu’s “Ghost Gate” experience that Wu Yanzu did not have “eclampitis” but the common appendicitis in the emergency department.

There are indeed many people who are stupid about the two brothers. Sometimes, folks refer to appendicitis as “eclampitis.” To distinguish between the differences, first of all, to understand the cecum and appendix in the body.

The cecum is the beginning of the large intestine and the thickest, shortest, and most accessible segment of the large intestine. The appendix is ​​a slender, curved, blind tube that is emanating from the cecum. The root is attached to the posterior lateral wall of the cecum. The distal end is free and locked, and looks like a sputum.

The incidence of appendicitis is low, and it is mostly secondary, often secondary to appendicitis, or may be caused by Crohn’s disease (an unexplained intestinal inflammatory disease), and the symptoms are generally mild. It rarely causes perforation and in most cases does not require surgery.

Appendicitis is generally caused by clogging and infection of feces, food debris or bacteria due to the thin appendix lumen. It is a common surgical emergency. If not treated in time, appendicitis can cause appendix abscess, perforation, acute peritonitis, and even severe shock and life-threatening. It seems that Wu Yanzu’s disease is accurately appendicitis, not appendicitis. Which symptoms indicate possible

Appendicitis

In general, the main symptoms of appendicitis patients are: severe pain in the lower right abdomen, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, fever. However, in the early stage of the disease, some patients may have different symptoms, such as flatulence, diarrhea, and upper abdominal pain. In this way, when the patient tells the doctor about the condition, it may be misleading for the doctor’s diagnosis. This may be the reason why Wu Yanzu was misdiagnosed at the beginning.

The emergency department of Shao Yifu Hospital once received a patient with a history of hyperlipidemia and pancreatitis. He developed abdominal pain and came to see him. He thought that he was suffering from pancreatitis (the position of the pancreas happened to be in the upper abdomen). The result was finally diagnosed as Acute appendicitis. Therefore, doctors often perform auxiliary tests on patients through blood tests, CT, color Doppler ultrasound, etc., so as to achieve accurate diagnosis.

Seize the best time to treat appendicitis

Appendicitis is a very common surgical emergency, and patients in the emergency room of the hospital have appendicitis patients almost every day.

Patients with milder disease, or patients who are temporarily unsuitable for surgery, may use antibiotics for conservative treatment of appendicitis. However, this method has certain risks. Some patients will continue to progress and become aggravated, and a small number of patients will become chronic and become chronic. appendicitis.

For most patients with appendicitis, surgery is generally preferred in the emergency department. It can usually be done by laparoscopic minimally invasive surgery, which can be completed by opening two small holes in the patient’s abdomen. It can be discharged two or three days after the operation, and normal eating life can be resumed less than one week after the operation. This is also the current treatment. The best way to treat appendicitis.

Therefore, it is not a big problem to get appendicitis as soon as possible, but if it is a patient with a appendix abscess, perforation, or even a more serious condition, it needs to be treated by laparotomy, which is more complicated and risky. The trauma to the patient is also greater.

Wu Yanzu, who had been in the “Ghost Gate”, missed the best treatment opportunity for appendicitis, which caused serious complications and threatened life. Therefore, when there is persistent abdominal pain in your body, you must see a doctor promptly. In particular, abdominal pain that lasts for more than 6 hours has not been alleviated, and the pain is exacerbated when the abdomen is pressed. It is very likely that appendicitis is obtained.

In addition, the risk of rupture of the appendix is ​​highest after the first 24 hours of symptoms. Once the appendix is ​​gangrenous and perforated, the treatment process will be more complicated and the risk will be greater.
