Pain When Sneezing On The Lower Left Side Of The Stomach After Appendectomy?
Hello, I want to ask, I just had an appendectomy 2 weeks ago, why does the pain in my left stomach after sneezing feel cramps or something like that, even though I operated on the right side,
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
If your abdominal pain is felt on the left, it is unlikely that it is related to your history of appendicitis, given the location of the appendix operation is in the lower right side of the stomach.
The pain you feel can be caused by:
Urinary tract infection: characterized by lower abdominal pain that can reach the waist (when it hits the upper urinary tract), pain when urinating Inflammation of the intestine (gastroenteritis / colitis): symptoms of abdominal pain and diarrhea Irritable bowel syndrome: abdominal pain can be accompanied by diarrhea or constipation which is influenced by psychology Inflammation of the intestinal sac (diverticulitis): symptoms in the form of pain in the lower left abdomen, can be accompanied by diarrhea To determine the exact cause, you should see a general practitioner to check the condition of your digestive tract and urinary tract. If necessary, the doctor will perform supporting examinations such as blood tests, stool examinations or refer you to an internal medicine specialist for further tracking. And after that you will be given treatment according to the underlying cause
Things you can do to improve the condition and prevent worsening are:
Make sure the food you eat is clean and not contaminated. Wash your hands before eating. Consume enough water, which is 2 liters per day. Don't delay urinating frequently. Avoid stress. Eat nutritious foods. Monitor the expiration date of each food you eat. Avoid eating spicy and sour foods. Avoid smoking, alcohol, highly caffeinated drinks, foods that contain saturated fat. Avoid sleeping immediately after eating. We recommend that you pause for about 2-3 hours. That's all my explanation, hopefully it helps and is useful. Get well soon :)
