Good afternoon doctor, I’m Mrs. Ayu, I want to ask you last week, April 5, 2018 I was hospitalized and the results of the diagnosis were GEA and I was given medicine, after taking the medicine I couldn’t continue to defecate during control, it turned out that after X-rays my stomach dirty and given medicine to be able to defecate but until now my bowel movements are a bit difficult and if I can defecate with blood and my stomach still hurts. What I want to ask is what is my real illness? and what medicine should i take.
Hi Ayumira, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
GEA or acute gastroenteritis is an infection of the intestines or stomach caused by bacteria or viruses. Symptoms of GEA include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain or abdominal cramps. sometimes fever may occur. However, if you are currently having difficulty defecating and if the stool is bleeding, the possible causes are:
Constipation, which causes irritation when it comes out due to hard stools
Hemorrhoids or hemorrhoids
Inflammation of the intestine
If the symptoms you experience are accompanied by vomiting, and the blood is increasing, you should consult an internal medicine specialist or surgeon. To find out the cause, the doctor will perform a physical examination, for example by doing digital rectal examination, the doctor will carry out supporting examinations such as blood tests and ultrasound if needed.
Some suggestions for you
Drink a lot of water
Increase high-fiber foods
Avoid fatty foods
Avoid frequently holding bowel movements
Avoid using laxatives too often
