. I was diagnosed with free fluid in the abdominal cavity. I did post op for the cyst last March. Why is an indication?

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The abdominal cavity is a room in the human body, where there are kidneys, intestines, stomach, liver, pancreas, and all kinds of things. In an analogy like a room in which there are many items. Normally, food and fluids flow through the digestive tract and there is no liquid in this cavity. So that when there is fluid that settles in this abdominal cavity, the fluid is said to be free fluid.

The causes of this free fluid are various, it can be because:

Impaired liver function Endometriosis or uterine tissue that grows outside the uterus Rupture of the intestine Kidney disorders Side effects of surgery

To find out this, further examination using ultrasound and examining the composition of the fluid in the laboratory is needed, whether the fluid is blood, water, pus, or plasma. Thus, it may be necessary to collect a sample of the fluid by accessing it using a syringe. Our advice, you can go back to the doctor who diagnosed you with these free fluids, or check with an internal medicine doctor or surgeon, because clarity is needed about the cause of the fluid buildup before treatment is carried out. For example, in the buildup of fluid due to liver dysfunction, in addition to taking the fluid, certain drugs must also be given to normalize its function and prevent the condition from recurring.

Meanwhile, there is not much you can do independently apart from generally maintaining your immune system by adopting a healthy lifestyle, namely by getting enough rest, avoiding stress, cigarette smoke, and seeing a doctor immediately. So, hopefully it answers your question.
