Postoperative Appendicitis, The Stomach Hurts Like Someone Is Moving?
Hi, I want to ask. I have had an appendectomy in Oct 2015. And that is the doctrine that my appendix has ruptured. But somehow I feel like my stomach is hurting a lot, this is a symptom that often arises. For example after coughing / sneezing. My stomach is right in the stitches, it’s moving like in the kick. When those movements sometimes hurt, sometimes they don’t. Or when I’m silent it feels like moving too, even when I sleep I feel until I wake up. What is that? Dangerous or not? Then I also have a magh disease, and the doctor also said that my magh was chronic. My appetite dropped dramatically, I was often nauseous. If I already have a recurrence, it hurts excruciatingly, like I want to die, because breathing is also hard. Cold sweat, if it’s already severe, how’s that? Does it have to be an x-ray so that everything is visible in my oerut? Because I feel my stomach is not right, it often hurts. Thank you
Hello Tika, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Based on the complaint you mentioned, the symptoms that arise are not so specific as to lead to a disease. If it is said to be a complication of appendicitis too long. But some of my guesses are as follows:
You have somatoform disorders. There is weakness in the abdominal muscles, so that moving is your intestine. Continuing your question about chronic ulcers, there are several possible diseases that are meant, namely:
Gastritis Peptic ulcer GERD / Gatroesofageal reflux disease To ensure some of the above diseases you can do by consulting directly to the doctor of internal medicine. Most Indonesian people have the wrong perception about the investigation in this case X-ray. X-rays cannot diagnose all diseases, not all organs can be seen using X-rays. Investigations will be carried out to assist doctors in establishing a diagnosis, and it must be in accordance with medical indications. So do not do a supporting examination outside the advice of a doctor because not necessarily a test is useful in the examination.
In your case it is likely that your internal medicine doctor will have an abdominal ultrasound, and an endoscopy to see the contents of your stomach and upper digestive tract. Right now what you can do is:
Get enough rest, sleep 7-8 hours per day. Avoid eating foods that are spicy, too sour, eat late, or don't eat at all. Drink 2 L of water per day, avoid coffee and alcohol. Avoid smoking. Don't massage your abdominal area right now. That's all the answers I can answer, thank you very much :)
