Added DiffLines:

* Similar to the Rogozov example above, some jobs and/or activities that involve traveling to remote areas where evacuation is difficult or impossible will also require or at least suggest preemptively removing the appendix. Astronauts are the most well-known example, but others, such as hikers planning to solo-hike remote areas, will also sometimes have this done.

* James Roday from ''Series/{{Psych}}'', was hospitalized with appendicitis and had to have it removed just prior to his scheduled appearance on WWERaw. He recovered and was even able to make a literal phoned in appearance during the episode, albeit highly medicated and somewhat loopy.

* Creator/RingoStarr, drummer of the Music/TheBeatles, nearly died at age six from peritonitis; he missed a year of school while recovering and remained sickly for most of his childhood as a result. It was his constant illnesses and inability to catch up academically that played a big role in him turning to music.

* ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai'' has an excellent example: The main villain of the third movie, [[spoiler: Fujino Asagami]], has a severe case of appendicitis, which leads her to believe she'd been stabbed. (It's complicated.) By the end of the episode, her condition has worsened to a point where even immediate attention is pointless; she's vomiting blood and barely able to crawl. And that's before we mention the killer chasing her, or the repeated rapes she endured previously. [[spoiler:It ends comparably well for her, when Ryougi Shiki (who can literally kill any''thing'') kills ''appendicitis'' inside Fujino and saves her life.]]

* In one of the ''Jonathan Cap'' books by Francois Rivier, the local PluckyGirl Juliette ''nearly'' develops this and she's sent to a luxurious private clinic for treatment. [[spoiler: It almost happens for real when she, Jonathan, Alex and Nico are investigating the clinic at her request; she tries to help out Jonathan when he's forcibly given sleeping drugs, but she near collapses in pain. Thankfully her appendix remains in one piece and she recovers.]]
