Stomach Aches After A Tube In The Stomach Is Removed?
Tonight … I want to ask my father at the age of 52 years, after kidney stone surgery and a tube in the abdomen off all of my fathers, I feel pain in my stomach … what I want to ask is something normal or what?
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
The hose you mean is the drainage hose, which functions to remove fluid or bleeding that is formed due to surgery so that there is no blood clot in it. The tube will be removed if the wound is dry, marked by the absence of bodily fluids or more blood coming out through the drainage hose.
It is natural that when you pull out the tube and a few hours after that your father feels pain. This is because the hose rubs against parts of the muscle and skin that have pain receptors. Therefore, doctors always prescribe painkillers for several days.
Noteworthy, if the pain medication does not work or if there is a lot of blood or bodily fluids or if there are signs of surgical wound infection (pus), consult your surgeon again. The doctor will follow up your father's surgical wound again.
In order to immediately heal the surgical wound, consume lots of foods that are high in protein, such as egg whites and cork fish. Clean the wound regularly according to what your doctor teaches to prevent infection.
Thus hopefully useful.
