The Left Stomach Feels Hard And Sore After Stone Surgery In The Urethra?
I want to ask, why does my left stomach hurt and feels so hard after urinating?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Stone urine can come from stones in the bladder or even the kidneys. There are various therapeutic modalities that can be done to treat this condition, including surgery. There are many types of this operation, including open surgery, ureteroscopic surgery, ESWL (extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy), cystolitholapaxy, and so on. Each of these surgical procedures can have their own side effects. Therefore, it is necessary to clarify first, what kind of operation did you have before?
The pain and hardness in your left stomach that you are experiencing can appear due to the surgery you had previously had. Some types of surgery, such as those involving open surgery or ESWL, can leave quite a disturbing pain a few days after surgery. This pain can arise from inflammation of the skin and surrounding tissue after surgery. However, this pain may also arise due to the presence of a segment of the stone that has not yet come out. In mild conditions, pain will improve within 1 week post surgery with proper treatment.
Apart from the effects related to your previous surgery, it could also be that the pain in the left side of your stomach that you feel actually arises due to other causes, which are not directly related to surgery, for example due to:
Urinary disorders, such as infection
Digestive disorders, such as infections, hernias, dyspepsia (increased stomach acid)
Reproductive disorders, such as ovarian cysts, endometriosis, ectopic pregnancy (in women)
Muscle and tissue disorders that support it, such as muscle pain, skin infections
Psychosomatic disorders, and so on
If the pain is very intense and appears for a long time after surgery, you can have the pain checked directly to the doctor so that it is evaluated for possible causes and the best treatment. In conditions that are suspected of being severe, further examinations, such as urine tests, ultrasound, X-rays, blood tests, stool tests, and so on may be done by the doctor.
In the meantime, you can first compress the painful stomach with a warm compress. Don't press too much on the painful side of the stomach. Get used to eating regularly, reduce consumption of foods that can aggravate pain (usually fatty or spicy foods). Always keep your surgery scar clean (if the surgery you had before involved open surgery). Reduce activities that involve severe abdominal muscle contraction, such as lifting or pushing heavy objects, running, bending for too long, and so on.
Hope it helps ..
