Where is you appendix, the left side or the right
Most people have their appendix on the right side, however, some
people have it on the left. What I think you are actually asking deals
with the fact that due to the poor nerve configuration in the lower
abdomen, people perceive to feel an infected appendix on the opposite side
of the body cavity than it actually is located.
Your appendix is in the right lower quadrant of your abdomen. It is found at
the point where your small intestine and large intestine join.
