Retained Appendicolith

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi I was wondering has anyone any experience with an APPENDICOLITH  my son has a perforated appendix in Febuary, he had an abscess on the appendix also, in April he became unwell again and it turned out he had an abscess on his liver further scans revealed that he has a appendicolith lodged on his liver, he had surgery in September to remove the appendicolith but it was unsuccessful. Any information would be greatly appreciated thanks.

    What do you mean it was unsuccessful? Did they remove it or not? Or it did not make a difference. I do not understand these doctors because they sound damn lazy and dont want to be bothered. This is serious and you need to address it as such after all you dont want to hear its to late...demand that something be done to help him.

      Hi He had an operation in September to remove it but they couldn't get it out it is now lodged onto his liver in a ball of scar tissue and every time they cut at the scar tissue he was bleeding badly and they had to stop the operation, docs now want to leave it till another abscess forms and try again to remove it which I'm not happy about
