Swelling In The Waist And Thighs?
Hello I am 23 years old. I have swelling in my waist and thigh. Then, I will see the doctor on surgery on the 25th. But I still doubt that if the swelling should be operated, is there no other way … the color is swollen, not a lump. Please answer
Hello Naylla, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Swelling in your waist and thighs of course must be known in advance the exact cause. Swelling in the area may occur due to disorders of the kidney (kidney swelling / hydronephrosis), kidney tumors, tumors of other organs in the lower abdominal area, obstruction of the lymphatic channels (can be due to infection, tumors, side effects of certain medical therapies), deep vein thrombosis infection (cellulitis or erysipelas), etc.
Indeed, not all causes of swelling in the waist and thigh area must be operated on. You should ask your doctor more clearly about the cause of the swelling so that we can provide a more targeted explanation of the treatment options you have. You can also ask what surgery your doctor intends.
Basically you have the right to know the disease and the treatment options you have. Your doctor also has an obligation to explain when you ask about your condition. If you are not very clear about your illness or the therapy your doctor intends to ask, ask again until you really understand why the operation is about to be done.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
