PLEA fOR APPENDIX
MADE BY DOCTORS
Patient teld Hesitate Before
Operation, They Say.
SOMETIMES COOD OHES ATI REKOYED
State Medical Association of Oregon
Ends Enthusiastic Session With
Reading of Good Advice.
The old practice of diving Into a
man' abdomen after bis appendix and
slicing It off In triumph u soon u be
exhibited symptoms of the "belly
ache" got roughly handled at the coo
eluding session of th Oregon SUU
Medical association at the Multnomah
Uotel, Portland, Saturday.
Th modern theory appeared to be
qui t different. The general advice,
u brought out In spirited discussion
of two weil-preaented papers on ap
pendicitis, wu to bang on to your ap
pendix Just u long u you can.
, The difference wu caphasised, bow-
ever, between acute ana cnronio np-
nendiclti. If rou have the scut
type. It wu generally agreed, it la
of ten better to get the appendix out
and have dona with It, though, even
then, It wu declared. It ie by no
mean always necessary to operate.
But If you should be troubled with
the so-called chroni appendicitis, pro
tect th appendix, stand guard over it,
refuse to -five it up until the most
careful aludy of th csae Mem to in
dicate beyond a doubt that it can't be
made to behav In any other way ana
deeervM to be taken out.
In case of doubt, it seemed to be the
concensus of opinion, keep your ap
pendix. At least be reasonable witn
it and give its chance. Don't eon-.
damn it on whim, or just because soms
on is willnlg to cut it out for you,
In fact, the ooor. lambasted appen
dix of other days, th once cause of
many of the ilia of mankind, wouia
bav been astounded at th warm de
fense It got. .
. Th reason for the extreme caution
to be observed in removing the ap
pendix In cue of chronic appendicitis,
it wu brought out by Dr. CbarlM E.
Sears in a paper on "Th Study of the
Condition Commonly Called Chronic
Appendicitis," la that In s great num
ber of cases appendicitis isn't th
troubl at all, but only a symptom.
