Thanks for writing in

Usually the pain of appendicitis is on the right side

Appendicitis occurs mostly because of inflammation of lymph nodes in submucosa and or a fecolith obstructing its lumen

It is not XXXXXXX if treated systemetically

As there is fluid surrounding it there are chances it is infected

It can be removed easily with a Laparoscope but considering the fact that you have been operated twice for abdominal surgery get it done by an expert

Hope this helps
Do write back in casse of concern
Wishing you a healthy life ahead
