Should i be worried about sensitivity around abdomen where the appendix used to be after an appendicitis operation?
About 6 years ago I had an emergency colon resection because of a whole that developed from undiagnosed diverticulitis . The perotinitis that resulted also required removal of my appendix . Over the years I have noticed sensitivity around the area of my abdomen where my appendix use to be. No back pain . It s not really pain and I only notice it when I touch the area. It is not a deep sensitivity but near skin level. Is this something I should worry about?
Sometimes during stiching an operation wound ,there is involvement of tiny nerve fibers which givethis type of sensations. If there is no other problem,don't worry,neglect it.It will disappear in future.
