Abdominal Pain In People With Appendicitis?
, my boyfriend is 20 years old, he said that he had appendicitis but he was not operated on, and now he has a stomachache on his left, right, and lower side, is that appendicitis too? then there are other alternative treatments besides surgery because we are poor people, thank you
Thank you for the question.
Appendicitis (appendicitis) if it is confirmed by a comprehensive examination, including physical examination, X-ray, laboratory, ultrasound, or possibly endoscopy, definitively treated by surgery. The aim of this operation is to remove the inflamed appendix, while also clearing the remaining debris and inflammation tissue. With surgery, the risk of developing complications such as intestinal perforation and peritonitis can be minimized.
So far, no alternative therapies for appendicitis have been found besides surgery. But indeed, not all appendicitis must be treated with surgery immediately (CITO). There are also types of appendicitis whose surgery can be delayed (elective).
Regarding the condition of your partner, you should ask him to check his condition again to the doctor or internist. Besides due to appendicitis and its complications (peritonitis), pain in the left, right, and lower abdomen he experienced may also occur due to other reasons, such as intestinal inflammation, intestinal obstruction, irritable bowel syndrome, digestive infections, digestive infections or urinary tract stones, bowel cancer, bladder cancer, pre menstrual syndrome, endometriosis, pelvic inflammation, ectopic pregnancy, muscle pain, fibromyalgia, dyspepsia, myoma, somatoform disorders, and so on. So, the condition will not necessarily be handled directly by surgery, but it may also be given medication first while further observation, or also carried out other therapeutic modalities. If he is constrained with costs, you can help him find a solution by consulting directly to the administration where he checked himself.
In the meantime, in order for the pain to subside, ask him to compress his stomach with warm water, eat a little more regularly but often, do not always exert excessive physical activity, wear loose and comfortable clothes, and never eat too much spicy, sour, fatty, and gassed foods. Do not carelessly give him any medicine without advice from a doctor.
Hope this helps ...
