everyone, I'm a beginner in Blender and 3d modeling, I was following a tutorial where I had to symmetrize the mesh. when I change the direction to +X to -X my mesh disappears but when i try out other directions they work, except for the one i mentioned. I would appreciate your help because i am stuck right now. Thanks in advance.

Symmetrize will use the object origin as the center of the symmetry, if the origin is shifted from the object center, here is what it will give:

enter image description here

So make sure that the origin is at the right position (you can right click in Object mode > Set Origin > Origin to Geometry). Also make sure that the local orientation is the one you want as the symmetry will take the local orientation into account, not the global one.
