Are we allowed to remove the apendix?


Is it allowed to remove appendix? God has created us in beautiful and perfect way. So, if we remove appendix this means that we are not happy how we were created?

I do not think that anyone removes appendix on the grounds that s/he is not satisfied how s/he has been created by God. At least I have not heard such cases. People have appendicitis surgery only when it is an inflammation of the appendix, just as other organs are removed in similar cases. For example, if a leg has gangrene, then this leg is amputated. It is so with the removal of a kidney, spleen, gall bladder, etc.
