Choice of surgery for appendicitis
I was admitted with appendicitis confirmed with a CT scan.  It was retrocecal and my cecum was more in the middle rather than the over to the right. I wanted a laparoscopic excision, but my surgeon shouted at me when I asked about this and proceeded to do a midline laparotomy.  What were the reasons for not performing a laparoscopic removal?  My surgeon wouldn't tell me, but I am still curious.  I am slim 28 year old male and I am concerned that when I resume my normal activities that I will be at increased risk of a hernia because of this.  Thank you.
