Do Not Want To Eat Because It Smells
Greetings … Doctor. Since my mother was sick, she didn’t want to eat because the food that was given always smelled so she made her vomit. Even though the food is just ordinary food. Example eating only porridge .. He said it smells. So I don’t want to eat and even if I do, I will vomit. 2 weeks ago, my mom was done with gallstone surgery. I want to ask what is the cause he does not want to eat and why does he smell in every food that is given? Thank you, doctor
Thank you for the question.
Gallstones are formed due to hardening of the fluid in the gallbladder due to too much cholesterol, bilirubin, or also because of disrupted emptying. Gallstones themselves can indeed make sufferers experience extreme nausea and vomiting. Even after the operation, this complaint can continue for some time.
If indeed the new gallstone surgery done 1-2 weeks later, presumably nausea, vomiting that your mother still feels can be said to be reasonable. This nausea and vomiting can also be a residual effect of the anesthetics used when your mother has surgery. Although indeed, it can also be nausea, vomiting is caused by other factors, such as dyspepsia, food allergies, carbohydrate malabsorption, intestinal obstruction, digestive infections or other organ systems, kidney disorders, migraines, hormonal disorders, olfactory disorders, heart disorders, psychological disorders, and many other originators.
Our advice, do not you panic. Even if it's a little, keep feeding your mother often. Prioritize giving your mother foods that are soft, easy to digest, and do not contain much gas and fat. Give him too much to drink. Don't make it a habit for your mother to eat and drink while lying down, but rather raise her head and chest (sit if possible). Also make sure your mother only eats clean and perfectly cooked food. Finally, help calm his mind, lest he stress, worry, or excessive sadness. Don't forget, give your mother the treatment as suggested by the doctor post-surgery.
Mild conditions should improve within 2 to 8 weeks postoperatively. However, if nausea, vomiting continues until a longer time, you should take your mother to see your doctor, surgeon, or internist in order to be evaluated and treated further in order to improve the condition yes ..
I hope this helps.
