What happens if I leave my appendicitis untreated?

If appendicitis is left untreated, there is a risk of severe complications and death: if appendicitis is treated early, then the operation is relatively quick and easy, but if the appendix has burst, then the operation is more difficult and the hospital stay is longer.
