Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Appendectomy (appendectomy) is a procedure performed to cut an inflamed appendix. This inflammation of the appendix is usually caused by infection in the area around the appendix opening that leads to the intestine. As a result, many feces and bacteria settle in the appendix and cause inflammation. This condition can make sufferers feel quite severe pain (especially in the lower right abdomen), accompanied by nausea, vomiting, bowel obstruction, decreased appetite, mild fever, and various other complaints.
To prevent the risk of dangerous complications from appendicitis, treatment needs to be done with appendectomy. This surgery is usually performed by a surgeon under general or local anesthesia. There are also 2 types of surgeries, namely laparotomy (open surgery) or laparoscopy (closed surgery aided by a camera-ended tube). Postoperatively, recovery usually takes about 1 to 4 weeks depending on the patient's condition.
Difficult CHAPTER several days after appendectomy is usually not a dangerous condition. This condition can occur due to intestinal motility that has not fully recovered after anesthesia. If you can still pass wind, and do not experience other complaints, such as severe nausea, vomiting, severe abdominal pain, hard stomach, fever, chills, and so on, usually this condition will improve within a few days without requiring special treatment. Frequent pain when urinating can be a sign that you are not drinking enough or often resist the urge to urinate. This condition is prone to occur during the postoperative recovery period. Here are some steps that you should take:
Start to move slowly, do not rest too much or lie down
Eat the right way
Start with soft consistency foods first, after 1 to 2 weeks, then switch to more dense foods
Eat small to moderate, but regular
Avoid spicy foods and lots of gas
Avoid caffeine consumption
Avoid rubbing the abdominal area, especially near the scars
Drink enough water
Consumption of drugs from doctors after surgery as recommended, do not consume other drugs carelessly (without doctor's advice)
If after doing the above tips you still can not defecate, or if you experience other complaints as mentioned above, do not hesitate to check yourself back to the doctor or surgeon who operated on you, yes. It is feared, your complaints occur due to other conditions. which need further treatment, such as intestinal obstruction, urinary tract infections, urinary tract stones, viral or other bacterial infections, and so on.
Hope this helps ...
