What Is The Relevance Between Farting And Appendicitis?

I had a friend that had appendicitis and after the surgery and during recovery, he said the doctors were wating for him to fart even begging him and when he did, they were all clapping and happy. Does anyone have any idea why? What is the relevance between the fart and recovering from appendicitis surgery? Anyone?

you have to pass air after any major abdominal surgery, not only appendicitis.

Not doing so is dangerous. That's why the doctors were worried.

i guess because one of the many symptoms of appendicitis is the inability to pass gas. so maybe by him farting kind of tells them at least that really is working for now.
