Stomach Ulcers And Difficulty Defecating With A History Of Kidney Stones?
Hello … I think I want to ask my father, he used to have a history of kidney stones … after the operation my father had a stomachache … I have checked with any doctor, including drinking herbal drinks but until now my father’s stomach still feels so bad and difficulty defecating …. Lastly, you went to Bojonegoro and the doctor said that the kidney had improved and his stomach was also good … but why did my father’s stomach hurt again … please what about the doctor’s reasoning about my father’s illness
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Stomach that feels painful, bloated, obese, and difficult to defecate can indeed be caused by an increase in stomach acid, or in the medical realm it is called dyspepsia syndrome. This condition can occur in association with a disease, for example gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa), gastric cancer, gastric ulcers, duodenal ulcers, cholangitis (inflammation of the bile), cholelithiasis (gallstones), pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), and so on. However, much more often it is not known exactly what triggers the appearance of this dyspepsia syndrome (functional dyspepsia).
It is true, the management of dyspepsia syndrome often requires efforts that are not easy and also time is not short. Therefore, it is necessary to identify more carefully what factors often trigger complaints, and as much as possible avoid these triggers. Some of the common factors that trigger dyspepsia syndrome are:
Stress Consumption of foods that are too spicy, fried, contain lots of gas Consumption of caffeine, alcohol. Side effects of drugs, usually non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs Fatigue, obesity, and so on. Is there absolutely no improvement regarding the complaint?
If it is true that your father feels there is no improvement after undergoing various treatments, then he needs to go back to a specialist in internal medicine. It is feared that there are other complications that cause the complaint to get worse, for example irritable bowel syndrome, food malabsorption, intolerance, colitis, metabolic disorders, and so on. Usually, not only a physical examination, the doctor will also direct your father to undergo laboratory examinations, ultrasound, endoscopy, and so on.
In the meantime, in addition to seeing a doctor, the following steps should also be done by your father:
Avoid using herbal remedies without consulting your doctor. Eat more regularly every 4 to 5 hours in small portions Do not overeat spicy foods, which contain a lot of gas (for example, cabbage, cabbage, tubers, soda), oil, and caffeine. Drink lots of warm water. Actively move and exercise. Compress the stomach that feels uncomfortable with warm water. Calm your mind, don't stress, get more relaxation and meditation. Hope it helps.
