Mat mlm. Sorry to bother you. Look, my friend has had appendicitis surgery since 9 years ago. But, until now often feel pain in his scars. Please explain to the doctor how to deal with / eliminate the pain. thanks.
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
Need to be explored further about the pain in appendicitis surgery experienced by your friend. Need to know about when the pain began to arise in the surgical wound, how the nature of the pain felt (prickling, such as twisting, feeling sore), is the spread of pain, trigger pain factors (after eating, after activity, after a collision), other symptoms experienced (fever, redness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation), history of previous illnesses, history of operations underwent, are there complications during surgery and surgical wound healing, history of treatment that you have consumed to reduce these symptoms.
Pain in the abdominal area or the former appendix surgery can be caused by several possible causes, including injury due to collisions in related areas, infections of the digestive tract that cause pain such as twisting, urinary tract disorders such as disorders of the kidneys and ureters, infections of the urinary tract infections of the reproductive organs (in women).
It is recommended to consult a doctor regarding further examination and management to treat your condition. It is necessary to examine the condition of the wound and around the wound associated with pain symptoms, supporting examinations can be done such as blood tests, examination of stool samples if needed.
Avoid taking medication on your own without a doctor's instruction, avoiding collisions in areas related to pain, maintaining a healthy and regular eating pattern, exercising control according to the doctor's consultation schedule and following the treatment regimen set by the doctor, avoiding doing activities or sports that are too heavy.
Hopefully this information can help you,
