Stomach Sounds Often After Pyloric Tumor Surgery?
HealthReplies.com good morning. I wanted to ask 2 months ago when he was diagnosed with a pyloric tumor and was immediately operated on. After surgery my stomach has improved, but how come I often hear stomach noises? Then there is pain but not so often it keeps disappearing anymore. My current condition is fasting. Does it matter?
Hello Reeeza, thank you for your question
Stomach noises are actually a natural phenomenon that do not require special handling. In medical terms, this condition is called borborygmi. Here are some reasons:
hunger - intestinal peristalsis will increase when hungry, with or without low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) food is being digested most of the air in the intestines - often from eating too fast, talking while eating, drinking with a straw, consumption of foods that produce a lot of gas ( such as cabbage, broccoli, cabbage) side effects of drugs, for example after taking laxatives for certain medical conditions, such as diarrhea, colitis, Crohn's disease, food allergies.To treat this condition, the following recommendations are for you:
eat regularly, preferably in small portions but often (5-6 times a day) drink water without a straw chew food until it's pulverized before swallowing limit consumption of foods that produce a lot of gas, such as broccoli, beans, cabbage after meals, take a walk for at least 15-30 minutes avoid stress with relaxation methods. Given that you are currently fasting, it is likely that increased bowel sounds are due to hunger conditions. If you are concerned about your previous history of tumor surgery, consult the surgeon who previously treated you. Basically, an increase in bowel sounds without nausea, vomiting, fever, constipation or diarrhea, as well as heartburn, does not require special treatment, all you need to do is adopt a healthy lifestyle.
Hopefully this is useful
