The Cause Of Difficult Bowel Movements In Patients With Orchitis?
I was diagnosed by a doctor with orchitis and is currently on treatment whether this disease affects digestion because it’s been 2 days I did not defecate only gas only?
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Orchitis is inflammation of the patient's testicles that can occur in one or two testicles at a time. This inflammatory process can cause accompanying complaints in the form of blunt pain in the testicles, swelling, discomfort when moving or walking, or fever.
Some of the conditions below can cause orchitis, such as:
1. sexually transmitted infections
2. urinary tract infections
3. Mumps or MUMPS
4. or an infection in the sperm duct or epididymitis
In connection with your question, the existence of complaints of indigestion where you have not defecated for 2 days is likely an indirect effect on your bowel habits.
When you experience complaints of pain due to orchitis, then your activity will decrease compared to usual, because you are trying to limit complaints of pain that might occur. Thus, decreased motion, maybe decreased appetite, disturbed your sleep, anxiety, will affect your bowel habits that may usually defecate every day, however, currently only 2-4 days. Therefore, even though you haven't defecated in 2 days, in general this is still within reasonable limits. And it is hoped that after your body recovers and your body is more comfortable, the digestion process is more comfortable, you are more active, then your bowel habits can recover.
For now, you should still try to consume water as optimal as possible, add fiber and move as optimal as possible to your ability, Give a warm compress to your stomach, hopefully can help reduce difficult bowel complaints.
However, if this complaint is still disturbing until you control it back to your doctor, then you should submit this complaint properly, so that the doctor can evaluate the cause of this complaint, whether due to indigestion, intestinal contractions, or simply because of lack of mobility. The results obtained by the doctor will be a reference for your treatment.
Thus the info we can convey.
