Fever, Nausea And Diarrhea After 1 Month Of Appendicitis?
Good afternoon, my neighbor has done an appendectomy for one month, then he feels symptoms of fever, nausea and diarrhea maybe because of the food he consumes, I want to ask what to do after the child feels the symptoms? And what foods can and should not be consumed after one month appendectomy
Thank you for the question.
Post operative appendicitis (appendectomy), the recovery period can take anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks. During this recovery period, it is advisable to consume lots of water and food that is easily digested (not too spicy, sour, gassed, and fatty), accompanied by plenty of rest, regularly take medicine according to doctor's advice, keep clean the area of the former operation, and not too a lot of things in mind.
The condition of your neighbor who has a fever, nausea, and diarrhea, may be caused by him not heeding the above suggestions. But maybe also, these complaints arise due to infection of the digestive system or other organ systems, dyspepsia, inflammation of the intestine, food allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, the influence of drugs, hormonal disorders, and many other diseases.
To improve, he can first make the following efforts:
Take paracetamol so that the fever subsides
Eat first food that is soft and easy to digest
Reduce consumption of sauces, chili sauce, coconut milk, fried foods, mustard greens, cabbage, tubers, coffee, tea, soda, chocolate, milk, and their processed products
Do not be hawker carelessly, let alone raw food and doubt its cleanliness
Get more rest, especially at home --- this action is also useful in minimizing the risk of transmitting COVID-19 which is currently endemic
No stress or excessive anxiety
However, if the fever that does not appear to subside within 3 days, or if there is vomiting and diarrhea that is very massive (more than 10 times a day), your neighbor still needs to be examined by a doctor or pediatrician to be treated further according to the cause.
Hope this helps ...
