Naturally, If After Appendicitis The Appetite Is Reduced?
Hello, I want to ask, isn’t my mom just after appendicitis and then her appetite is greatly reduced, is that normal? Or innate because of that surgery?
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Decreased appetite is not a definite reaction experienced by all people undergoing appendicitis, but it is natural for anyone to experience it.
There are various factors that might have an effect on this, including because of pain that makes eating so passionate, could also be due to hospital food that is not very suitable with your mother's taste, could be due to trapped gas or digestive system functions that have not optimal post surgery, and can also be due to factors of mind and stress that are very diverse in each person.
Furthermore, it needs to be explored also how long is the distance from the appendix operation. If your mother has been discharged from the hospital, maybe this isn't just limited from her appendix. It could be a broader condition and not related to appendicitis.
Therefore, it would be better if you consult your mother's problem with the doctor who treats her or take her to the doctor again if you have time to get out. This is important because if not, it is difficult to know the probable cause. If the cause is unknown, it's even harder to determine the treatment. That is why having your mother directly examined is so important.
In the meantime try asking your mother how she feels, and what she thinks is not an appetite. Are there things that bother and make him uncomfortable, and what he wants to eat now. If your mother cannot understand her condition clearly, then she does need a doctor's examination. So, hopefully answering your question.
