Cannot Defecate And Stomach Enlarges After Appendectomy?
Hello, my name is Aldo, 15 years old, yesterday I did an appendectomy on Monday after the surgery. I can’t defecate and my stomach is getting bigger and it’s a bit short of breath. So what should I do? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Appendectomy can be done with 2 procedures, namely laparotomy (open surgery), or laparoscopy (minimally assisted surgery with the use of a small camera-led tube). Both types of surgery can have different healing periods. Generally, patients who undergo laparoscopic surgery will recover faster.
Deficiency of bowel movements and abdominal bloating after appendicitis is usually due to a poor digestion. This bloating can feel so great that it causes your breathing to become tight. It could also, defecation, bloating, and shortness of breath occur due to other causes, such as intolerance, malabsorption, food poisoning, digestive infections, irritable bowel syndrome, obstructive ileus, benign or malignant tumors, respiratory disorders, drug side effects, and so on.
This condition, if it feels very severe, it is better to consult a doctor or surgeon who operated on you before. Thus, you can also get the right treatment according to the cause, for example by being given drugs, or maybe also carried out further examinations, such as ultrasound, laboratory, and so on.
At this time, you should:
Arrange your diet first: In 1 to 4 weeks postoperatively, eat foods that are easily digested, such as porridge, soft rice broth, Limit consumption of fatty, greasy, spicy, coconut milk, sour, soda, caffeine foods Do not eat carelessly Only eat food clean and mature Reduce consumption of instant food and drinks Drink plenty of water Eat a little but often Get plenty of rest Put your head and chest higher while sleeping so that tightness is reduced Use comfortable clothes, not tight Not carelessly taking medicine Hopefully it helps yes ..
