Hello Cindy, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Inflammation of the bile or called cholecystitis. Cholecystitis can produce symptoms such as:
Abdominal pain, especially in the gut and upper right abdomen
Pain radiating to the back and right shoulder
Abdominal pain when touched or pressed
Nausea and vomiting
Pain in cholecystitis usually appears especially after eating large amounts or eating fatty foods.
The symptoms experienced by your father could indeed be caused by cholecystitis. However, these symptoms can also be caused by other things, for example:
After cardiac catheterization (insertion of rings), a person will usually be given blood thinners, aspirin, one of them. Aspirin has side effects, one of which is irritating the stomach.
After carrying out an operative action, a person is prone to gastric problems known as stress ulcers (sores in the stomach that are triggered by physiological stress, such as surgery, extensive burns, severe infections, etc.)
It is better for your father to tell the doctor who treats him about the symptoms he is experiencing. The doctor can conduct further evaluations to find the cause of these symptoms, as well as provide certain drugs to help reduce the symptoms your father feels if they are caused by side effects of drugs or stress ulcers.
For now, a few things your dad can do:
eat small amounts of less but more often, avoid eating too much
avoid eating foods that are too fatty
avoid eating foods that are too spicy and acidic
do not lie down immediately after eating
keep taking the medication prescribed by the doctor, but your father can take the medicine with food to reduce the risk of side effects
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
