Of these cases 37 chose antibiotics, and 65 surgery. After one year, 76% of those taking antibiotics did not need surgery, experienced fewer disability days and lower medical costs than the surgery group

LifeTip: Nonoperative management of acute appendicitis may be a good option in some cases, but more research is needed.
