is it Meckel's diverticulum??it was removed probably because it was complicated by peptic ulceration and hemorrhage..
Complications-
Intussusception
hemorrhage
perforation

Symptoms-depends on the complication...abdominal pain is present in all..

It looks like a specimen of appendix... and it is inflammed....
is that acute appendicitis ??

ulceration,abscess and perforation as its complications

abdominal pain starts from periumbilical region and then moves and becomes localized to RIF, nausea, vomiting as symptoms of acute appendicitis

tenderness and rebound tenderness on RIF
rigidity, guarding
The Rovsing sign(RIF pain while palpating the LIF) as signs

Most probably this is acute appendicitis.
S&S: initial diffuse, periumbilical pain that moves to the right iliac fossa (pain site may vary according to the position of the appendix), nausea, vomiting; on clinical exam - rebound ternderness, Rovsing sign positive, psoas and obturator signs positive
Complications: peritonitis

I would say its a carcinoid tumor in the appendix, most likely risk i can think is METS to the liver and cause carcinoid syndrome at first sight.

But if given a hx of acute pain abdominal, i would go with acute appendicitis, no rupture seen, so the greatest risk is perforation and peritonitis.
