With the usual caveats about medical advice online… and without knowing exactly your cousin’s situation this could be one scenario:  The perforated appendix caused an abscess in his abdomen that is causing continued infection and fevers.  The 2nd operation is to try and drain that abscess.  Once the source of the abscess is removed the antibiotics have a better chance of success.

He’s young and healthy and those factors are greatly in his favor, but if it is an abdominal abscess – he’s pretty sick.     

http://allnurses.com/general-nursing-discussion/ruptured-appendix-peritonitis-54890.html  gives some people’s accounts of their experience with loved ones who’ve had perf’d appx. 

Hope he’s on his way to being better soon.

This happened to my husband! He was in the hospital for around a week but all worked out!
