Then he was given ranitidine and painkillers.rnrAre there signs of appendicitis or other diseases?rnrPlease answer, thank you 🙂
Thanks for the question. The abdominal pain that you feel in the upper right part is not caused by appendicitis because appendicitis will cause symptoms of lower right abdominal pain. Abdominal pain that you feel in the upper right when pregnant is generally caused by the pressure of the enlarging uterus pressing against the stomach. In addition, due to the influence of hormones, your digestive tract will produce more gas and the movement of digestive tract muscles becomes slower, causing abdominal pain.
Upper right abdominal pain that is felt after you give birth can be caused by:
stomach acid disease
inflammation / gallbladder stones
stomach ulcers due to H. pylori infection
stomach ulcers due to side effects of drugs, side effects of soda or caffeinated drinks, side effects of eating too much
Please continue taking the medicine given by the doctor. Also do the following suggestions:
avoid eating large portions at once, you should eat small portions but more often
Avoid consuming spicy and oily food
Avoid consuming soft drinks and caffeinated
avoid lying down after eating
Avoid wearing tight clothes on the stomach area
If after taking the medicine your complaints do not improve, don't hesitate to go back to the doctor. The doctor may need to perform additional tests such as blood tests, ultrasound, CT scan to determine the cause of your complaint and then determine the right treatment for you.
Hope this information is useful.
