Complaints felt by your friend's mother with complaints of swollen feet, left abdominal pain, weakness, coughing, shortness of breath, and decreased appetite, then all these conditions can be ascertained by consultation and direct examination by the doctor who treated him. With a direct examination by a doctor, the doctor can find out whether there is interference with the patient's body system. Whenever the doctor plans a supporting examination for all of these complaints, the doctor will provide an introduction to the supporting examination which can be submitted by the patient to the intended clinical laboratory. Thus, patients who bring an introduction to the supporting examination will not be wrong with the examination plan that will be carried out, because all the examination points have been written according to the doctor's plan. So, what needs to be ascertained by you or your friend's family is whether your friend's mother is carrying the introductory examination introductory sheet needed by the doctrine to help find out the cause of the complaint your friend's mother is feeling.
If indeed your friend's mother does not get an introduction to supporting examinations to the laboratory, then you can suggest visiting her family doctor or other internal medicine doctor for a second opinion. Thus, the evaluation and examination carried out better and directed by the examination.
In connection with your question, if with a complaint he feels, several investigations can be considered, such as a heart check, sugar level check, cholesterol check, uric acid examination, complete blood test, and liver function examination and ultrasound. However, because I have not done an examination on a patient, the investigations conducted based on complaints alone do not have a good clinical value, so the results of investigations can be biased and may not be needed as well. To prevent useless examination results, then I cannot recommend an optimal examination for your friend's mother, however, you can suggest asking for a second opinion directly to the family doctor or to the internist, because this is very important for the diagnosis process and next treatment. The results of the examination guide will be confirmed directly by the results of the doctor's interview about the sick journey, physical examination that has been done by the doctor. Thus, all clinical procedures go well and can help your friend's mother's recovery.
During this examination period, it is best for your friend's mother to try things like:
Avoid physical fatigue, avoid stress, avoid sleeping late, avoid spicy foods and coconut foods. Sufficient fluid needs will help the fluid balance. While the diagnosis or cause of this complaint, will be based on the results of the doctor's examination.
