Appendicitis is a disease that can occur if there's an inflammation in the appendix, maybe due to an infection or blockage.

Symptoms
•Pain in the abdomen.
•Fever ranging from 99 to 102F.
•Nausea and vomiting.
•Inability to pass gas.
•Loss of appetite.
•Pain during urination.
•Constipation or diarrhoea.

Danger alert! If you don't defecate at least once in 3days, read this!!!

Question: Is it dangerous if I poop/defecate/pass out faeces at most once in a week or once in two weeks?

It is a warning sign given to the body by organs associated with defecation (Liver, Large and small intestine, Rectum, Anus, Sphincter and others). It is not something to ignore especially as we continue to grow.
