Postoperative Atresia Ani Often Constipation And How Appropriate Busination
Afternoons … I am the mother of one child … My son is 7 months old … My child was born with atresia ani low position … then rectal formation immediately … after six months my child was operating again due to narrowing of the anal canal due to busination rare .. Then after the SECOND operation widening again … After returning from the hospital I was advised to do busination using fingers … but every busination using My-Jelly with the thumb of my child cried, like trauma. What I ask is how to do the right busination and relax the child and how long the busination should continue? Besides, my child also often constipates / constipation, what is the solution? Do I have to give each laxative constipation?
Hello Mother, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Busination is an anal dilatation procedure that is performed so that the anal canal made after surgery in an atresia patient remains patent. Usually busination uses a device called a spark plug / dilator. Busination is carried out every day to avoid scarring in the anal canal and is carried out continuously until the desired size is reached. At the time of busination the child may cry because of improper position or lack of lubrication so make sure the baby's position when you do busination is appropriate as taught and use enough lubricant.
For complaints of constipation in infants can be caused by various causes such as newborns introduced with solid food, infants lacking fluids, due to certain formula milk, or certain underlying medical conditions such as allergies, hypothyroidism, and so on. That way to determine the right treatment, you need to find the exact cause. Therefore it is necessary to do a physical examination and some additional checks needed by the doctor.
For current treatment you can provide high-fiber foods to children that are tailored to the age of the child and make sure the child gets enough fluids. If the complaint continues then immediately consult the situation with your doctor. Provision of laxatives is only done on the advice of a doctor.
So, hopefully useful.
