Bloating And Shortness Of Breath Accompanied By Gallstones.?
, my mother has been bloating and suffocating for 1 month, she was taken to the hospital, she said gastric acid, but after being on ultrasound, there was gallstones as big as 0.47 cm, if my mother was in surgery to remove the gallstones it would likely disappear? And one more thing, my mother has felt something soft for a long time on her vaginal lips, and that sometimes makes my mother’s feet ache, but after being examined by an obstetrician and surgeon, they say there is nothing even though my mother feels the pain, so is it bloated and suffocating that my mother experienced the influence of gallstones or because there is in my mother’s vagina? Please answer.
Aloo Tessa Tiara,
Gallstones are stones that form in the gallbladder, in certain cases these stones can come out of the gallbladder and clog the bile duct so that it gives acute symptoms. The size of gallstones can range from rice seeds to golf balls. The amount can be one or multiple. Some patients do not experience any symptoms if the stone size is small and does not cause abnormalities in the bile system, but if there is inflammation or blockage due to gallstones can develop symptoms as follows:
Sharp pain in the upper right abdomen Discomfort in the solar plexus Pain in the back of the back or shoulder Nausea and vomiting Color of the eyes or skin becomes yellowish white chapter Fever Gallstones can be formed from cholesterol or bilirubin. Risk factors for gallstones are female sex, age> 40 years, frequent eating fatty foods, fasting / diets with excessive weight loss. Gallstone diagnosis apart from physical examination is also from supporting examination such as ultrasonography, CT scan, ERCP, and blood laboratory. Handling can be done by administering stone solvent drugs (recommended only for patients who cannot undergo surgery due to poor general conditions) and surgery.
Feeling bloated and full / tight might be caused by gallstones, but can also arise due to other abnormalities. Suggestions for surgery you can discuss again with a surgeon who checks your mother's condition directly. Definitive treatment for gallstones is indeed through surgery. If it is not acceptable, the handling of drugs is only to reduce complaints of pain or discomfort experienced. However, patients must continue to do routine evaluation at the doctor, to monitor whether the gallstones cause other complications such as bile duct obstruction or malignancy / cancer in the gallbladder.
