Post-operative Cyst Pain?
The doctor in my lower left abdomen had a lump, while standing there disappeared when lying down. And let me often get sick even the pain penetrates into my back. Then I checked into a specialist in internal medicine and Dr. referring to ultrasound, after the results of ultrasound and reading my abdomen was still within normal limits unless the lower left abdomen was diagnosed with a hernia and referred to a surgeon. Then I checked into the general surgeon and Dr. confirmed that the lump was a hernia, then Dr. suggested a CT scan and I was advised to use BPJS. I went to Health Center 1 and was referred to type c hospital to Dr. Surgeon. At the hospital, I consulted with the General Surgeon with the results of ultrasound and was suggested to have a CT scan then Dr. referring to Type B Hospital on the grounds that facilities were lacking and I was referred to Dr. Digestive Surgery. After undergoing the examination, Dr. Digestiv suggested surgery and I asked him if he needed to do a CT scan. He didn’t need to do it because with a physical examination he already knew a weak wall gap … Oh yes, I did a cyst surgery 6 years ago … Then did it hurt at solar plexus is the effect of hernias or not, then which opinion should be followed from general surgery or from digestive surgery in the same hospital, that is type B hospital ..
Hello Tika, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Complaints of heartburn that you feel, can be caused by several conditions such as stomach acid disease, gastritis, injury to the stomach, abnormalities in the bile (eg inflammation of the ducts / gallbladder, gallstones), trade in the pancreas (pancreatitis), psychosomatic, and several other possibilities. If you have performed an abdominal ultrasound and have been declared normal, you may not experience any abnormalities that can only be detected through an abdominal ultrasound examination, but may be caused by other diseases that may require other tests such as endoscopy, certain blood tests , CT scan of the abdomen and several other examinations depend on the doctor's examination.
Regarding the hernia problem experienced by you, symptoms of hernias in general is in the form of a lump or bulge that can get in and out of the stomach / groin area, depending on the type of hernia. For other symptoms that accompany also depend on what organs are experiencing hernias (intestine or fat tissue) and how far the severity of hernias are experienced. If it is severe enough it can be accompanied by severe pain in the stomach, fever, nausea and vomiting and this condition requires immediate treatment in the form of surgery. So to state whether the complaint of heartburn that you experience is related or not with the hernia that you experience, it can be related and may not be related.
Furthermore, regarding your question which recommendations should be followed, until now there has not been any specific recommendation what checks should be done to determine a hernia diagnosis, so whether you need a CT scan or not, all depends on the consideration of the doctor who will perform surgery on you, the surgeon who specializes in digestive surgery at this type B hospital. If the doctor who will perform the surgery on you states that he does not need it, then follow the doctor's advice, because basically the CT-scan is not intended for treatment, but to confirm the diagnosis and location of the hernia, so that if your doctor states he is quite sure of the diagnosis , then follow his advice.
I hope this helps.
