Diagnosis of abdominal (abdominal) colic refers to a severe pain experienced by the patient, which is caused by the internal organs of the stomach being affected. Some of the most common causes of abdominal colic include:
Stomach injury (peptic ulcer) infection / stones in the bile duct Inflammation of the appendix (appendicitis) disorders of the intestine such as intestinal obstruction, bowel movement disorders (ileus), intestine that is squeezed out through a weak abdominal wall (strangulated hernia) infection / stone in kidney infections / stones in the urinary tract inflammation of the abdominal wall (peritonitis), etc. With the large number of organs in the stomach, the causes of abdominal colic are very diverse. We recommend that your father get an examination from a specialist in internal medicine. The doctor will recommend an abdominal x-ray, ultrasound, abdominal CT scan, endoscopy, colonoscopy (examining the inside of the gastrointestinal tract using binoculars) depending on the suspected cause obtained during the physical examination. Treatment is given according to the cause that is found. In case of infection, antibiotics will be given, if there is a stone, a surgical procedure will be carried out to remove the stone, etc.
