Hello Doctor, nMy husband thank God for deciding to quit smoking on Thursday morning. NHowever, 24 hours after he stopped smoking (Friday afternoon) – until now – he defecated constantly. After taking the stall medicine, it doesn’t stop either. Until I make porridge. My question is, does this have to do with stopping him from smoking? At first, he often holds his stomach like a lot of pain, even though he usually doesn’t.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Complaints of abdominal pain, most likely not caused by quitting smoking because there is no direct link between the respiratory system where cigarette smoke passes through with the digestive system where the majority of causes of abdominal pain originate.
So, among the possible causes of your husband's complaints are:
Food poisoning Gastrointestinal infections Gastric irritation Ulcer disease Gallstones Gallbladder colds
To find out more specifically, we advise your husband to consult a doctor in order to get further examinations and treatments such as blood tests, ultrasound and feces check if necessary. Meanwhile, keep your hands and food clean, avoid spicy, sour, oily foods, and foods bought on the roadside, drink plenty of warm water, and please buy antidiarrheals that are sold freely by reading the rules of use listed.
As additional information, your husband's good intentions must be followed by a strong determination. Quitting a few days is a good step but the temptation to return to smoking will continue to come for at least 6 months. So you need strong cooperation from the mother to make sure your husband can really stop smoking for good. So, hopefully answering your question.
