The Body Feels Achy And Postoperative Rheumatic Pain?
Hello, my father just got gastric surgery 4 months ago but after the surgery he felt all his body aches and rheumatic pain, was that the effect of surgery or not and what was the safe medicine for his stomach?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Pain and rheumatic pain that is felt in the body most likely does not originate from gastric surgery, because complaints of aches and aches are usually caused by something specific to the organ that is experiencing it. For example, if there is aching in the shoulder, usually it is due to excessive physical activity, misplaced or without heating, the habit of carrying a bag only on one side of the shoulder, related nerve disorders and the like. So easy in the case of your father, it is not possible surgery on the stomach causing aches and rheumatic pain in the wrist or leg.
What is possible is that after the operation, your father continued to lie in bed and did not move at all, a prolonged emphasis on certain points on his body could cause the feeling of aches, especially if the bed was uncomfortable. So it's not because of the surgery, but the things that happened precisely when the recovery operation itself. Besides that, the possibility is indeed not related at all to the history of its operations, such as viral infections, lack of exercise, exercise too heavy after a long time not exercising, gout, and the like.
To be sure, consult your father to the doctor, so it can be more clarified about the condition, possible diagnosis and the best treatment. Your father's doctor will emphasize on digging history such as the flow of the disease and what risk factors it has, and physical examination. The handling you will receive later depends on the results of this inspection.
In the meantime, you can ask your father to take pain relievers or apply over-the-counter pain relievers by reading the rules of use, compressing the aches with warm compresses, doing light massages, limiting physical activity, and increasing consumption of proteins such as milk eggs, cheese, yogurt, chicken breast, beef and seafood. So, hopefully answering your question.
