Will my wife be able to carry a baby after appendix operation?

Q: My 24 years old wife is into her second month of pregnancy. She had an appendix operation 9 years back leaving a scar on the right side of her abdomen, which pains when hit by some object. She experiences no pain during sex or any other regular chores. The pain is evident only when she lifts a bucket of water. Will she be able to carry the baby well? Can she have a normal vaginal delivery?

A:This probably does not need treatment, but get a surgeon to take a look. There is a small possibility of a hernia. She will carry the baby as well as any other woman. Cesarean section is done for obstetric reasons. If it needs to be done, the gynaecologist will do it. Don't think about avoiding it. The cesarean section is not related to the operation done for appendix.
