Heartburn After Appendectomy?
Hello r nI ikadewi I am 16 years old the day before yesterday I had an appendectomy and now I feel pain in my stomach, why is it? What is the solution or what is the medicine so that it doesn’t hurt so much?
From the information you conveyed, if 2 days ago you just had an appendectomy to remove the appendix, then the complaints you are feeling right now are probably comorbid complaints after surgery.
After surgery, the doctor will provide care and treatment related to your condition and your complaints after the operation is performed and after you go home from the hospital. Thus, it is possible that the doctor has given you medicine, then continue the treatment that has been given to help reduce your complaints.
What you need to pay attention to is self-care that you need to do at home. Some things you need to pay attention to after appendectomy are:
1. Waiting for the recovery period, so avoid moving excessively, at least about 7-10 days. Total recovery can take as long as 4 weeks
2. avoid sleeping late at night
3. avoid spicy food, noodles, meatballs, fried rice, pecel, soda, coffee, fast food
4. enough water
If this complaint persists in the next two days after you have tried to prevent all risks, then you should consult directly with the doctor who treats you. The doctor will perform an examination and evaluation regarding this complaint. So that doctors can evaluate Pegobata that has been given.
For initial conditions, you can chew gastric drugs that are sold freely in pharmacies or supermarkets, but you should still consult your doctor immediately.
That's the info we can convey, also read appendicitis.
