The Left Side Of The Stomach Looks A Little Bulging After Eating?
. Why is my left upper abdomen big when I finish eating … Please explain, and how to handle it …
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically the human stomach is located in the upper abdomen slightly to the left. When you eat, your stomach will stretch because it is filled with food, so it's very normal if your upper abdomen (or even your upper abdomen tend to the left) will look a little bulging after you eat (especially if you eat a lot). If indeed the enlargement of the upper left abdomen only occurs after eating alone, and within 2-3 hours the stomach shrinks again, there are no specific symptoms that interfere (such as nausea, vomiting, food that rises again up / out into the mouth when belching), abdominal pain, and do not feel certain lumps in your stomach (meaning enlarged diffuse nature or spread evenly), then there is nothing you need to worry about. If there are any of the above symptoms, especially if you can feel a lump in your left abdomen, then you should immediately consult a doctor for further evaluation.
The following are some things you can do:
Try to eat less, but more often
Don't eat too much or eat until you feel very full
Reduce eating foods that are too oily and greasy, and foods that produce gas
Try to drink less in the middle of meal time (you can drink after you finish eating)
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
