Can Appendicitis Lead to Diarrhea?

Q:
Can appendicitis lead to diarrhea?

A:
Appendicitis may lead to diarrhea in some people, but it is not the only cause of diarrhea.

Appendicitis refers to the blockage of the appendix as a result of dry stool, food remains, and bacterial infection in the tube.

Appendicitis may lead to diarrhea, severe pain, fever, nausea and vomiting. If not treated immediately, it will cause the rupturing of the appendix, making bacteria spread into the abdominal cavity, and finally cause severe infection and even death.

If you have diarrhea and think that you may get appendicitis, you should consult your doctor for advice.
