Q: 

A: Welcome to e health forum. appendicitis is swelling or inflammation of the appendix, a small pouch attached to the proximal part of the colon. appendicitis is one of the most common causes of emergency abdominal surgery, and usually occurs due to appendicular blockage due to feces, infection or foreign objects, etc. The onset of appendicitis can occur anytime.

Q: 

A: Hello and welcome to e health forum. In case the initial infection was not treated adequately, then persistent infection can result in chronic appendicitis. The best way for proper diagnosis would be a CT scan or a ultrasound. In case there are positive findings, then a surgical option can be sought. You might consult with a doctor or a gastroenterologist who can examine you and then decide on the proper treatment.

Q: 

Calling all doctors! The Mysterious pain?!?

A: 10 seems a little young to begin menses, but possible. And, a infected lymph node wouldn't spontaneously go away in one day. I am pretty sure you would know if it were a kidney stone, because it doesn't just go away in a day, either (personal experience) plus you would have notice some blood in urine. It still could have been your appendix. You won't get the fever until it ruptures. acute appendicitis is inflammation of the appendix, your body is always getting inflammation, and it can get rid of it. Your body might have done just that. If you didn't have it removed, which sounds like your didn't. You still could do it again. If it happens over and over in your life. It's called chronic
Q: 

is it good for me to keep Appendix ?

A: Hello, and thank you for your medical question on e Health Forum. A episode of acute appendicitis if treated partially can subside in severity, but the persisting infection can result in Chronic appendicitis. The progress is slow, with, less intense or even less significant signs and symptoms including episodic pain, Fatigue, feeling unwell, diarrhea, constipation, etc.) The causes for such chronicity includes partial obstruction of the appendix and mild infections. Diagnosis of chronic appendicitis is time consuming but it needs to be treated as early as possible, as the infection can spread to nearby intestines, or may complicate by rupturing and presenting with an emergency situation. ...


Q: 

A: Hello, Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. The survival rate in ALL has improved from zero four decades ago, to 20-75 percent. In older patients, cases are more likely to result from chromosomal abnormalities (e.g. the Philadelphia chromosome) that make treatment more difficult and prognoses poorer. Only 20-40% of adults with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) are cured with current treatment regimens. However in patients older than 65 years, prognosis is poor and they are high patients. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take...


Q: 

A: Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum! Prognosis of acute lymphoblastic leukemia in elderly is poor as compared to children due to chromosomal abnormalities. About two decades ago the five year survival prognosis was almost zero, but has improved to 25 percent and more in recent years. The chances increase to about 70 percent in some cases. However, please discuss with your specialist. Hope this helps.
