Feeling Of Pressure In The Right Stomach And Waist After Appendectomy?
I want to ask .. I’m a 36 year old man..there is a sense of pressure in my right stomach and waist. I feel clear when I sit and lie down and sometimes it reaches my groin. My activities in the office are mostly sitting… as an info I had an appendectomy 3 weeks ago and the complaint still exists … what causes it? and how to solve it …
Hello Farid, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
The recovery period after appendectomy can range from 1-6 weeks depending on the type of surgery performed and the presence or absence of complications of appendix rupture (ruptured appendix). Sometimes mild pain you can still feel during this recovery period and this is normal. Other possible causes of pressure in the stomach and waist are constipation or difficult bowel movements which commonly occur after surgery, surgical complications, postoperative intestinal abscess, intestinal obstruction (blockage).
The possible cause of the pressure in the stomach and waist may not be related to the operation you had 3 weeks ago. Some of the possibilities include stones in the urinary tract, urinary tract infections, disorders of the spine or spinal cord.
If these symptoms are very disturbing, it's a good idea to check back with your doctor for further tests. The doctor can perform a physical examination and recommend certain supporting examinations to help make a diagnosis, for example a CT scan or abdominal ultrasound.
Some of the things you can do:
We recommend that you do not sit too much and do more light walking.
Stretch the muscles, especially your waist muscles after about 1-2 hours of sitting
Expand to eat fibrous foods to facilitate bowel movements
Drinking enough water every day (2-3 liters a day)
Avoid strenuous activities and don't lift heavy objects until your doctor allows it
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
