Yesterday it was massaged but it still hurts. what could my father do? from what i read on google, what are the signs of peritonitis? thank you
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
The course of pain you describe is typical for cases of peritonitis. That is an inflammatory disease due to infection of the lining of the stomach or peritoneum. Normally, peritoneal is an area in the stomach that is sterile or free from germs. Infection can occur due to rupture of the stomach or intestine. An example is the case of appendicitis which is too late to undergo treatment so that it ruptures. In addition, it can also occur due to rupture of abscesses in organs located in the stomach, such as liver abscesses, kidney abscesses and others.
Associated with complaints of fever accompanied by pain that is initially in the gut and then moved to the lower right abdomen, is a typical symptom of appendicitis or appendicitis. That is an inflammatory disease that occurs in the tufts of worms (small organ bulges in the large intestine). As noted above, if this disease does not get immediate treatment, the inflamed appendix can rupture causing peritonitis.
This case is an emergency situation. Immediately you take your father to the nearest hospital emergency room. In order to be carried out further tests to ascertain whether it really has peritonitis or other diseases. The doctor will carry out the necessary investigations such as routine blood, X-rays and abdominal ultrasound. If there is a strong suspicion of peritonitis, immediate surgery is needed. Late treatment can cause septic shock and cause death.
Don't linger, hurry to the hospital emergency room. In this condition, excessively enforcing the disease is better than missdiagnosa.
Thus hopefully useful.
