appendicitis

If you go to the hospital and they give you antibiotics and say that the appendicitis isn't that bad. How long will they keep you at the hospital before discharging. This is if you do not need surgery. Have you ever known anyone or you yourself gotten just antibiotics for this without surgery?

they slightly suspected that I had it and they wheeled me back and took it out the same day, I was admitted for 5 days total. I was told they wouldn't send me home if it was even suspected.

No. Once its infected they usually take it out. It can get pretty nasty and its not like you actually need it.

 Nope. When my dd had appendicitis she had to have hers removed. She was in the hospital a wk before they removed hers due to infection.
