Comment from: dorjee, 0-2 Male (Caregiver) Published: March 18

My 19-month-old baby boy was diagnosed with an appendicular mass or abscess after receiving a CT scan and ultrasound. He was admitted to the hospital one month ago and treated with antibiotics, but again same problem reoccurred, and he was readmitted to the hospital. He is recovering, but it is not confirmed that the same problem won't happen again. Any advice?
