This is called an appendicolith. When seen on CT in a patient exhibiting symptoms of acute appendicitis (i.e.. abdominal pain around the belly button and near the right lower abdomen, loss of appetite, hurts to jump), then it is recommended to remove the appendix. If you are asymptomatic, then you may hold off on surgery for the time being. However, if any abdominal pain or other described symptoms arise, then I would seek medical attention. Regardless, I would maintain routine medical visits to ensure you are not developing symptoms. READ MORE
I advise no heavy lifting or overly strenuous activity for 6 weeks after a repair. Without viewing the hernia incision to determine if it is infected or in danger of opening, I would say as long as the sex is not strenuous or you are not lifting up your partner, it generally is safe at this time. Of course, if you feel any pain or discomfort to the area, I would advise to stop that particular activity or stance. READ MORE
