Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clear, what kind of enlargement of the stomach do you mean? Which part of the stomach is actually enlarged? Does it feel pain, nausea, bloating, or any other complaints?
A sudden enlarged abdomen often occurs due to gas buildup in the digestive tract. Ordinary people often refer to this as bloating. The causes can vary, for example:
Effects of food or drinks consumed, for example due to consuming too much bersantan, sour, spicy, soft drinks, caffeinated, alcohol
Dyspepsia (increased gastric acid), for example due to gastritis, gastric ulcer, duodenal ulcer, cholangitis, pancreatitis
Obstructive ileus (intestinal obstruction), often due to fecalith, entry of foreign matter, or tumor
Irritable bowel syndrome
Digestive infections, and so on
In addition to gas that accumulates in the digestive tract, enlargement in the abdomen can also occur due to other factors, for example obesity, intra-abdominal tumors (tumors in the abdominal cavity), liver enlargement (hepatomegaly), enlargement of the spleen (splenomegaly), pregnancy, and so on. So, the enlargement of your mother's abdomen is not necessarily the case with regard to bananas and the drugs they have just consumed.
Without examining your mother directly, of course we cannot conclude what is exactly what makes your mother's stomach expand. However, if you really observe your mother's stomach enlargement is very significant, especially for example to make your mother in pain, vomiting, experiencing urination or menstrual disorders, no appetite, her stomach felt very hard, and so on, you should check it IMMEDIATELY to doctor or internal medicine specialist to be evaluated more deeply, for example by supporting examinations, such as x-rays, ultrasound, and so on. That way, if there really is an illness, of course the doctor can handle your mother well.
In the meantime, we recommend that you first do the following suggestions:
Don't massage or massage your mother's enlarged abdomen
Ask your mother to rest more, use loose clothing and pants
Help your mother eat a little but regularly, not too much, do not also delay the meal
Limit your mother from consuming foods and drinks that can increase gas production in the digestive tract (as above)
Do not carelessly give your mother medicine without a doctor's prescription
Hope this helps ...
