Thinking of having my appendix removed

When I was talking to my PA the other day she mentioned she had her appendix taken out during her hyst. It doesn't really serve a purpose and could cause problems down the road. Anyone ever heard of or had this done?

I asked if the dr. would take mine out, and he said no, he doesn't remove healthy organs. Of course they also told me no to the tummy tuck, liposuction and teeth cleaning....

My mom had her hyster. over 20 years ago and she had hers removed simply because her dr. asked her and told her there was really no reason to have it. Things may have changed now. I wasn't asked but my hyster. was vaginal.

I also wanted to get mine out but my doctor said that the insurance would not pay for removing it as it was not diseased. She also mentioned legal/insurance issues that could result from removing it and then having complications resulting from the procedure. Anyway....it's still there and hopefully will remain healthy, happy, and tucked away!

hmmmmm..... that would save some later trouble, family history of apendisitis.. wonder what my doc would say to that??? I know that its really common for them to check it when they do any abdominal surgeries, they checked mine out when I had endo out. Said it was okay at the time.

They told me the morning of the surgery that they would remove it if needed. Guess it looked ok, I still have it. Good luck.

actually, i did not ask but they removed mine since apparently it was inflamed -- who knew? anyway, they said that it does add complications because it adds time to the surgery so is not common.
