Nausea And Dizziness A Few Days After Surgery?
, I want to ask my mother right after surgery on the right shoulder, after a few days my mother felt nauseous and dizzy because of the effects of the medicine? Please give me an explanation please.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, what kind of shoulder surgery does he undergo? What is anesthetized during surgery? Is it total or only partial?
If the surgery that your mother underwent was previously performed with general anesthesia, it is most likely, indeed the nausea and dizziness that she is currently experiencing is related to the side effects of the anesthetics used previously. It could also, nausea and dizziness occur due to other causes, such as migraine, dyspepsia (increased stomach acid), hypotension (low blood pressure), anemia (low blood hemoglobin), hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), viral or bacterial infections, allergies, liver disorders, kidney disorders, mental disorders, and so on.
As long as it's mild nausea and dizziness that he experiences, often this condition is not dangerous and will improve 1 to 2 weeks after surgery with proper rest and postoperative treatment as advised by the doctor. You can help your mother alleviate her complaints by:
Make sure your mother eats with discipline, a little but often, reduce the consumption of foods that can aggravate nausea (for example, foods containing coconut milk, spicy, and sour)
Give your mother time for more rest, enough sleep
Avoid your mother from taking any drugs, other than those prescribed by the doctor
Calm your mother's mind, lest she stress, worry, fear, or panic excessively
Compress your nauseous stomach with warm water
Help treat the former operation in a way that is recommended by the doctor
However, if nausea and dizziness feel burdensome, especially for example accompanied by severe vomiting, blurred vision, loss of consciousness, weakness, fever, or severe inflammation in the former operation, it is better to check your mother directly to a doctor or surgeon who operates it so given the right handling yes ..
I hope this helps.
