Appendectomy with a bleeding cyst removal. Pain and burning sensation in the area, nausea. Why ?

Hi, I had an appendectomy a month ago. The surgeon removed a bleeding cyst at the same time. For the past three days I ve been experiencing pain and a burning sensation in that area and I am feeling nauseous. Since this morning after sneezing 3 times.... I have this warm feeling around that area.. I don t have a fever though. What could this be?

The pain, burning sensation at the operative site is a common finding. It takes almost a week to get through the pain. Nausea is an associated finding as well.

I hope you are on the right antibiotics. Please complete the course of the antibiotic. If you develop a visible swelling or pus discharge from the operative site, it needs medical attention. You need to get back to the operating doctor then.

Meanwhile, you can take simple analgesics like Tylenol for the pain. Stick to bland diet and semi-solid foods for at least 3 weeks.

Take adequate bed rest. There is nothing seriously wrong with your health.

I wish you quick recovery.
