Lindsay Lohan In Surgery

1/4/2007 4:51 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay lohanTMZ has confirmed that Lindsay Lohan has undergone an operation to remove her appendix.

Leslie Sloane Zelnik, Lindsay's rep, tells TMZ that Lindsay was not feeling well and went to the doctor yesterday. The doctor performed several tests and determined that Lindsay was suffering from appendicitis. Doctors asked her to return to the hospital today to remove her appendix as a precaution.

Zelnik says Lindsay is resting comfortably.

Seems Lindsay suffers from a case of bad luck around New Year's Eve. Exactly one year ago, Lohan was posted up in a Miami hospital after suffering from an asthma attack.

For people who don't seem to care about Lindsay, they are sure quick to post something negative or just plain evil. As a medical practitioner, I can tell you that often an appendicitis is not always a matter of fact with the usual testing. Symptoms can very often be vague. I have removed a number of appendixs' for precautionary measures with symptoms usually resolving following surgery. This may have been Lindsay's case. People, don't be so quick to judge. Lindsay is very young and will eventually grow up. In the meantime, find something productive to do with your life. Try medical school, you llearn about the body and the mind. You might just find out what makes you tick. Have a nice day.

At this point, she definitely is the Elizabeth Taylor of the 21st Century. Only difference - she's at least smart enough not to get married and Elizabeth Taylor was a better actress.

Lindsay is not even on my radar, but these comments are cruel. I have figured this site out. It is nothing but a pissing contest to see who can write the most disgusting comments. Entertaining at times, tho.

Well, if it really is appendicitis, there'll be a scar. I dont know that anyone could be prepared to go so far as to fake a scar for the rest of their life as a cover up....

Some of the people commenting on this site are way off base. Just because people are hating on her doesn't necessarily mean they are jealous of her success. Maybe there are people out there who are truly malicious and wouldn't mind seeing her come out of this surgical procedure dead.

Stick with you're opinions blogers and don't try to pretend you have any medical knowledge. Too many of us that are in medicine find you just too funny.

Appendicitis means inflammation of the appendix. Sometimes, the body is successful in containing ("healing") the appendicitis without surgical treatment if the infection and accompanying inflammation do not spread throughout the abdomen. They give them antibiotics and it goes away. Now many doctors have the opinion that it not a necessary organ so let’s just remove it to be safe. That’s most likely what happened here.

ArchAngel, well said. I am also a health professional who happens to love gossip and it is true they do often wait and watch an appendix. they no longer rush into to taking them out like they use to and if in doubt they will remove rather than risk rupture.
