Can Cyst Surgery And Kidney Stone Surgery Be Done Together?
Hello doc … I want to ask doc, can cyst surgery and kidney stone surgery be done together …? Because my mother was afraid of having to be operated twice, doc … Please give me a solution, doc … Wassalam
Thank you for the question.
There are many types of cysts, for example ovarian cysts, dermoid cysts, kidney cysts, breast cysts, and so on. Cyst is a type of benign tumor, in the form of a fluid-filled sac. Not all cysts need to be treated further, including surgery. Therefore, it should be clarified first what cysts have your mother experienced?
Kidney stones can form due to crystallized component of urine. This condition can occur due to various factors, such as dehydration, undergoing certain dietary patterns (especially diets high in animal protein, salt, and sugar), digestive disorders (for example intestinal inflammation or chronic diarrhea), recurrent urinary tract infections, side effects of certain drugs, cystinuria , hyperparathyroidism, and many other factors. Like cysts, not all cases of kidney stones also need to be treated with surgery. Kidney stones, which are small in size, can often decay by themselves provided the patient drinks a lot and is given certain medications. Other treatments besides surgery, for example ESWL (extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy) can sometimes also be done to treat kidney stones.
Therefore, before worrying too much, you should accompany your mother to check her condition first to the doctor. The most entitled to determine what the best treatment for cysts and kidney stones they experienced must be the doctor who examined them directly. Even if surgery is indeed necessary, the doctor will also determine when the operation will be performed, which should take precedence, and which can be postponed.
Hope this helps ...
