Overcoming Lower Abdominal Pain After Kidney Stone Surgery?
After three days of binocular surgery and the destruction of kidney stones, why is the lower abdomen still painful and bloated. What should I do to fix it.rnThanks HealthReplies.com
Hello good morning Mr. Rivani.
Kidney stone surgery using binoculars (ureteroscopy) or also known as Ureteroscopic Removel of Stones (URS) has been widely used because it tends to be safer, tends to be more successful (in kidney stones that are not too large), and can make the patient return to routine relatively quickly. However, most patients experience pain after the URS procedure. The pain ranges from mild to severe pain. Based on a study said that the risk of postoperative pain will increase in people whose surgery is more than 60 minutes and also increases with stent placement.
Pain is usually felt in the pelvis and or in the bladder (lower abdomen). In addition, the patient may also experience BAK accompanied by blood in the first 2-3 days after surgery, but this will disappear over time and as the patient is hydrated (drinking enough water). Regarding the bloating you experience is also a normal thing to happen, this usually occurs because of anesthesia (anaesthesia). These complaints will also disappear over time in a few days. To relieve this pain, the treating doctor will usually prescribe pain relievers that are classified as strong pain relievers. It is recommended that you consult with the doctor who treats you regarding the complaints you are experiencing and the drugs given.
If the pain persists, especially if it is accompanied by a high fever, long-lasting redness of the bladder, and the pain is getting worse and spreading, then immediately consult a doctor who treats you or the nearest emergency room.
