Hello Surya, thank you for using HealthReplies.com.
Based on the results of your grandmother's ultrasound, there are four conditions experienced now, namely:
Hepatic cirrhosis is a condition of the formation of scar tissue in the liver due to long-term (chronic) liver damage. Cirrhosis can be caused by several factors, including due to infection with virushepatitis B, virushepatitis C, and consuming excessive alcohol. Cholelithiasis is a small rock that comes from cholesterol, and forms in the human bile duct. This can be caused by people over the age of 40 years, women, have given birth, overweight, obesity, to drastic weight loss. Kidney cysts are round or oval-shaped pouches and contain fluid that forms in the kidneys Ascites is a condition in which there is fluid in the abdominal cavity, precisely between the inner abdominal wall and the abdominal organs. This condition is generally caused by several diseases, such as liver disease, cancer, kidney failure, or heart failure. For surgery, a lot of preparation must be done beforehand. Especially during surgery, anesthesia will be performed where the condition of vital signs, and all organs must be optimal then can be planned for surgery. I suggest you to consult directly by a specialist in internal medicine, so that treatment can be given in accordance with the condition of your grandmother.
The things that should be avoided by your grandmother are:
Do not consume alcohol Do not consume foods with high fat Adequate rest Maintain optimal blood pressure Treating all the basic ailments that are currently experienced Thus the information I can give, hopefully can help you.
