Post appendicitisI had a ruptured appendix that was treated with IV antibiotics and a J-P drain for the abscess that had formed. Now I am applying Holly as well as Frankincense and Caster Oil topically to the area. (Doctor is okay not removing as long as no new symptoms but I hope to support the immune system so it does not recur.)
Also I was advised to take Pyrogenium. I am wondering what strength and how much to order. How long would you think I need to take it? Do you think I should have Iris Tenax handy in case of getting symptoms again?

I'm wondering if these are good things to have on hand. I want to be prepared in case I have pain again to avoid rupture and hospitalization.

Being more closely related to the right side, it is considered the best treatment for appendicitis. Dr. Vig himself never mentioned the use of Iris Tenax for appendicitis. But in view of its symptoms, subsequent experimentation with Iris Tenax has found it to be very useful in the treatment of appendicitis. I have often used Iris Tenax with Arnica and Bryonia in potency 200 for the treatment of appendicitis, and found it very useful and amazingly effective. If cramps are the salient symptom, then instead of Bryonia one should use Belladonna. Very often, appendicitis can become complicated and lead to a very dangerous situation. The triad just mentioned can bring the situation under control. I often would get sick with appendicitis and used to get better with this prescription. Once, while travelling, I felt uneasy right from the beginning of the journey. I used these three medicines. We travelled the whole night. The next day, I drove the car myself for 400 miles and we reached Karachi. The pain had remained under control throughout the journey. The next day I was taken to a hospital and examined by a surgeon. He was amazed to find that my appendix had burst open, discharging pus. The surgeon could not comprehend that not only was I alive but had also driven the car for 400 miles. Naturally, I underwent the surgical removal of my appendix, but I did not take penicillin; instead I used homoeopathic antibacterial drugs.
My advice to homoeopathy students, as well as to the patients, is that they should not totally depend upon these three remedies and keep postponing the need for surgery. Once the appendix is diseased, the homoeopathic remedies may only be used temporarily but the removal of the appendix by surgery is still the best treatment.
The pain of appendicitis can start during any time of the day or night. However, the usual time described for appendicitis is the night. According to my experience, there is no such restriction on the time of the onset of appendicitis. In Iris Tenax, the pain starts on the right side and then spreads in the entire abdomen. There is a tendency towards severe vomiting.

I took one dose of Iris Tenax and applied a Castor Oil compress for an hour, which I will repeat in the morning.
(A week ago I had fever just for two days then I started Pyrogenium. Very sore throat for a few days, now coughing up thick dark yellow mucous a few times a day, and very thick in sinuses, though throat is better for last couple of days. I took Bryonia and Mercurius and now also taking Sulphur. I also started Andrographis as well as something called ClearLungs which contains Dong Quai, Ophiopgon, Poria, Chinese Asparagus, Chinese Skullcap etc.)
I doubt the respiratory situation is related although maybe just the stress of the infection has irritated the appendix.
