Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Regarding your first question, I will explain about sticky intestines. Sticky intestine or intestinal adhesion is a condition characterized by one side of the intestine attached to the other side of the intestine. This condition often occurs due to injury to the intestine that occurs during surgery on the abdomen, resulting in wound healing by forming scar tissue and adhesions with other parts of the intestine. In addition, it can also be caused by a process of chronic infection of the intestine so that when healing occurs, the infected intestinal wall will form scar tissue and attach to other parts of the intestine. This intestinal adhesions will cause intestinal peristalsis. In severe conditions it can become obstruction ileus, if adhesions are very wide. Ileus obstruction is a disorder of intestinal peristalsis due to a blockage so that feces cannot get out. Symptoms that can arise in the form of unable to defecate, difficulty in passing wind, fullness of stomach and vomiting. This condition can cause death.
The presence of intestinal adhesions or not on you, can only be known with certainty by the surgeon when performing surgery. We suspect that this is related to your previous appendicitis. A ruptured appendicitis is very likely to cause intestinal adhesions. This is because in a ruptured appendix, bacteria come out with feces to enter and contaminate the lining of the stomach and the space which is actually a part of the stomach that is sterile (free of germs). Giving rise to local infections there which is very dangerous. Actions taken by the doctor even then must be very observant when cleaning the sterile part of the feces that enter. If there are still germs, even if only a few can cause infection as in your case, the intestinal abscess accompanied by intestinal attachment.
For handling your intestinal adhesions, depending on the severity of adhesions. If there are symptoms of total obstruction ileus, immediate surgery will be performed. However, if the adhesions do not cause symptoms, there is no drug that can release the adhesions besides surgery. Surgery can also be postponed by still observing complaints.
For further treatment, you should follow your surgeon's advice. Because he is more aware of your condition. Because he is the one who conducts the examination directly on you.
Thus hopefully useful.
