Heartburn And Back Pain After Surgery Due To Ectopic Pregnancy?
Afternoon, Icha, I want to ask 2 weeks ago when I had surgery, I was pregnant outside the womb, why do I often have heartburn until this spine hurts… what is the cause and what should I do… thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Depending on the location of the pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy surgery is generally performed by making an incision in the lower abdomen until it reaches the uterus with the aim of removing the remaining pregnancy tissue outside the uterus. This operation can be performed under general or partial anesthesia.
A few days after surgery, heartburn to the spine as you are experiencing can be a normal thing as a residual effect of the anesthesia used previously. Or, it could be, this pain arises due to the spread of inflammation in the lower abdomen after surgery which is part of the healing process.
If the pain is mild, you can try to overcome your complaints by using a warm compress on the solar plexus to the painful spine. Eat small portions but often, and limit the consumption of foods that are too spicy, oily, and contain a lot of gas. Drink lots of warm water and get plenty of rest. Wear comfortable clothing, not tight, in order to minimize pressure on the former operating area. Limit first lifting heavy objects, standing too long, bending too much, and going up and down stairs.
If with the above efforts the pain does not improve, then there is a possibility that your complaint may arise due to other causes, for example dyspepsia (increased stomach acid), pinched nerves, cholangitis (inflammation of the gallbladder), cholelithiasis (gallstones), viral or bacterial infections, psychosomatic disorders, myalgia (muscle pain), and so on. You need to see a doctor directly for a thorough evaluation, not only through a physical examination, but also blood tests, x-rays, or maybe ultrasound.
Hope it helps ya..
