1 Answer:

Hello Lisah, thank you for the question for

Difficulty defecating (BAB) or constipation accompanied by enlargement of the stomach can occur due to many possibilities. The causes of constipation are generally divided into 2, physiological causes and certain diseases. The following are the physiological causes of constipation:

Consumption of foods with less fiber every day, drink less fluids, don't move or exercise too much consumption of meat and processed foods, and foods that are fatty and sugar, consumption of too much alcohol or coffee, often holding back bowel movements

Some of the diseases that can cause constipation include:

Hypothyroidism (thyroid hormone deficiency) diabetes IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) Disorders of the brain or spinal cord Obstruction of the intestine, for example due to tumors in the intestine, diverticulosis Side effects of using certain drugs Electrolyte disorders and many more

If indeed your mother's stomach is getting bigger, painful, feels hard, and her constipation has been going on for a very long time, up to 5 months, you should immediately take your mother to the doctor for further examination and treatment. You can take your mother to a general practitioner or an Internal Medicine doctor. Allowing this condition to continue will certainly be dangerous for your mother's health.

In the meantime, some things that can be done include:

Eat more fibrous foods, increase consumption of fruits and vegetables, replace carbohydrates with more complex carbohydrates such as brown rice or brown rice, whole grains, oatmeal Increase fluid consumption (at least 2-3 liters per day) Do regular exercise every day, increase activity daily physical do not just sit around Avoid holding bowel movements, immediately remove it when there is a sensation CHAPTER Reduce consumption of meat, especially processed meat, fatty foods, and sugar Reduce consumption of alcohol and caffeine

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
