Hi and welcome to the forum! I am glad that I can help you.

You want to know what kind of food you can consume when you experience an inflamed appendix.

There is no specific food that individuals should avoid when experiencing an inflamed appendix. However, individuals may experience an inflamed appendix if they consume sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds without peeling them off. If individuals experience severe abdominal pain due to appendicitis, removal of the appendix is recommended.

According to the data that you described, you are experiencing an inflamed appendix. Consult a surgeon about whether you should have your appendix removed.

Please keep in mind that I provide medical information only. I am not able to diagnose medical conditions online. Please contact your doctor for further advice and information about diagnosis and treatment options.
