How Will a Ruptured Appendix Be Diagnosed?
There are several different tests that your healthcare professional should conduct before diagnosing you with appendicitis. These tests will ensure that an appendix problem can be identified before surgery is required.
- Physical Examination – The first step of your doctor should be a physical examination. They will apply gentle pressure on the gentle area. As soon as the pressure is released, the pain should become much worse. They may also search for abdominal rigidity.
- Blood Test – This will allow your healthcare provider to check for a high white blood cell count. This will often signify an infection in your body. This is a great way of identifying a burst appendix.
- Urine Test – In some cases, your doctor may want to conduct a urinalysis. This will be to eliminate a urinary tract infection or kidney stone, which can have similar symptoms before diagnosis.
- Imaging Tests – It is possible that your doctor may recommend an abdominal X-ray, ultrasound or CT scan. These tests can be used to confirm a ruptured appendix or find other issues which could be causing you pain.
