Hi.

cardiomegaly is a condition where there is an enlargement of the heart organ. Cardiomegaly can usually be seen through physical examination or additional examinations such as X-rays (CTR> 50%).

Cardiomegaly itself can be caused by various diseases, such as congestive heart failure, prolonged high blood pressure, heart valve disease, heart rhythm disorders, cardiomyopathy. Usually if there is cardiomegaly, there will be signs of heart failure. Heart failure can cause symptoms such as coughing at night, shortness of breath when lying down, shortness of breath when doing activities, swelling in the legs, fatigue, weakness.

Swelling that occurs in the stomach usually indicates that heart failure is severe enough. To reduce swelling in the stomach, treatment is usually necessary using diuretic drugs that are given through a vein. Diuretics can reduce the volume of fluids, which can reduce swelling. as well as coughs which can be relieved by giving these diuretics. But of course the use of diuretic drugs cannot be done carelessly and must go through a doctor's examination and prescription directly.

So you should check yourself first to a heart specialist (SPJP), so that the doctor can check your condition directly and provide the right therapy.
