Right Abdominal Pain In People With Appendicitis?
yesterday I was diagnosed with appendicitis, initially it was just right stomach pain, but tonight for the right to left abdominal pain, is there any pain relief? The problem is I use BPJS and can only go to the hospital tomorrow
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
One of the causes of pain in the right stomach can be caused by appendicitis (appendicitis). This condition occurs when the appendix (appendix, part of the digestive tract located in the lower right abdomen) becomes inflamed due to a blockage of the duct that connects it to the intestine, either due to hardened feces or swollen lymph nodes. Not only pain, people with appendicitis can also experience nausea, vomiting, chills, decreased appetite, diarrhea, constipation, flatulence, and various other complaints.
The spread of abdominal pain from the right to the left abdomen in people with appendicitis can be a mild thing due to referred pain due to stimulation of certain nerve fibers. It could also, this pain arises because the appendicitis has ruptured (ruptured), causing inflammation of the lining of the abdominal cavity (peritonitis). Or, it may also indicate that there is another underlying cause (other than inflammation of the appendix), such as pre-menstrual syndrome, urinary tract infection or stones, ovarian cysts, myoma, pelvic inflammation, food poisoning, gastroenteritis, diverticulitis, ectopic pregnancy, and others.
A direct physical examination by a doctor accompanied by further examinations, for example blood tests, urine tests, X-rays, ultrasounds, and so on, needs to be done to make sure whether your complaint is purely due to appendicitis, or is there another condition that aggravates it. If true, this examination is also useful for detecting the possibility of other complications, such as appendix rupture or abscess. Therefore, if the pain you are experiencing is very severe, or appears accompanied by other complaints, such as fever, chills, or severe vomiting, you should check your complaint directly with a doctor or surgeon (no need to wait for tomorrow) to be given proper treatment. .
In the meantime, so that the pain subsides, you can first compress the sore stomach area with warm water while taking paracetamol if necessary. Eat and drink regularly, first avoid consuming excessive spicy and fatty foods. Reduce the activities that cause abdominal pain first, for example lifting or pushing heavy objects, going up and down stairs, running, and so on. Avoid wearing tight clothes and pants, also avoid massaging or massaging the painful abdominal area.
Hope it helps ..
