Frequent Postoperative Bowel Emotions?
Tonight, My Father Saturday, January 4 and then intestinal grafting surgery, lately has become emotional. Is it possible because of the influence of painkillers huh? I’m confused myself, because he was not as emotional as before the operation. Please enlighten me. thanks

Thank you for asking at Aolodokter.
Having a history of surgery that has just been undertaken in a few days, or rather on January 4, 2020, and this condition triggers your father to be angry or emotional easily, then this condition is a natural thing to happen, where surgery is a procedure that is not fun to do and live . The procedure of gut grafting due to a certain medical condition or indication that your father has to go through can be a long time, and cause painful experiences for your father, especially now that he is still going through a recovery phase after a few days.
Patient recovery process after major surgery usually takes a long time, starting from 1 week to several weeks, depending on the patient's response in the recovery period and the presence or absence of complications that accompany it. So that 5 days after surgery your father might still feel a disturbing complaint, both abdominal pain, body aches, nausea, headache, fever, uncomfortable appetite, bitter eating, back pain, chapter complaints, complaints of motion and maybe all of these affect psychic.
In patients who experience unpleasant experiences or experience pain disorders that affect their lives, sometimes this causes anxiety, disappointment, sadness, or despair, which can cause a variety of psychological responses, ranging from silence, screaming, easy to cry, easy complain, until angry. Therefore, in this condition, in addition to helping to calm your patient or father, you and others around your father should be able to understand the conditions experienced by your father. By understanding that your father went through an unpleasant or traumatic phase of experience, you and your family can put themselves in place either by supporting, calming, consulting a doctor, or by understanding and being patient. This is important to do, because it is likely that your father has not been able to carry out activities optimally and has not been able to fulfill his needs independently. So that you and your family's help is really needed. However, even so, you and your family still need to take care of themselves and take care of each other's health, in order to stay healthy and be able to take care of your father well until he is fully recovered. Thus, your father can pass well.
Important things to note are:
1. Avoid glassware and sharp edges around your father so as not to fall and hurt your father
2. Provide adequate fluids and nutrition according to doctor's direction
3. Take turns in caring for father, so that your family's stamina remains healthy
4. Give understanding to other families with your father's condition
5. Give a good understanding for your father well and politely in order to be more patient and sincere
6. Consult your doctor immediately if there is a medical problem or a disturbing complaint
Thus the info we can convey.
