Hi nefeli and welcome to ehealth: When my husband has this, it radiated in the left area of his stomach...The pain was so intense he could hardly stand up...I took him to the ER and he was a rush Appendectomy....He had no prior warning...But, he will never forget it...

From our experience I would say that it stays...However, it may show signs earlier...I would not say that it radiates on the back of your leg, it just is a terrible "lower belly ache"....

If you question this and it gets real bad, have it checked out...I do know if the appendix burst that people have died...That being because the infection can spread through your body...The doctor said that his was red hot (for what that mean)....

Please seek advice from a doctor if you are concerned...Take care...
