Is surgery the only cure for appendicitis ?

Hi, I have lower abdominal pain . My doctor suspected it to be Appendicitis . They have asked to take a CT Scan and confirm the level. Is operation the only way to cure this or there are any other means. I am 22, Unmarried. I have got this pain only very recently for 2 months. I am scared to get operated. Can any one suggest me what should I do now?

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Appendicitis needs operative treatment because it has high chance of rupture and causing severe infection in the whole abdomen. Nothing to worry. It is a relatively safe procedure and recovery is excellent and ensures you won't have appendicitis again.
