Delays to treatment of appendicitis can result in complication and, in very rare cases, fatalities. Appendicitis can commonly be misdiagnosed because its symptoms are associated with many common disorders. These symptoms include;
Vomiting & Diarrhoea
Fever (high temperature)
When a patient has pains in the abdomen, a doctor should carry out a full assessment, looking for tenderness. If they are unsure of the cause, then image, urine or blood tests can be carried out. If you think your doctor was negligent in treating or diagnosing your appendicitis, then we may be able to get you the compensation you deserve.
Appendicitis can easily be treated by surgically removing the appendix. This treatment should always be done quickly. Any delay can cause a burst appendix which can spread infection in the body, increasing pain, suffering and the chance of a life-threatening condition.
If doctors have failed to make an accurate diagnosis, the standard of care may have fallen to negligent levels. The patient will often endure severe pain and suffering as a result and infection can lead to peritonitis.
