The Stomach Swells And There Is Fluid Outside The Intestine?
Tonight I want to ask why the stomach can suddenly harden and after ultrasound turns out there is fluid outside the intestine … that’s what causes it and how to treat it ??? thank you
Thank you for the question.
Fluid outside the intestine is usually a term used by doctors to describe peritonitis, which is an inflammation of the lining of the abdominal cavity. Most often this condition occurs due to infection, which can spread from infections of the stomach, pancreas, intestine, or also other abdominal organs. This infection can spread through adjacent spasia, through the bloodstream, or also because of a history of injury and surgery around the abdominal cavity. Due to inflamed membranes, the production of fluid in the abdominal cavity will increase later. This is what will cause your stomach to expand and harden. Not only that, peritonitis will cause your stomach to feel painful, nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, fever, chills, bloating, diarrhea, easy to thirst, rarely urinate, difficult to defecate, weak, easily tired, excessive sweating, and many other complaints.
Peritonitis, if not treated properly, can be very deadly. Therefore, you need to consult directly with your doctor, internist, or surgeon who treats you. Depending on the cause and severity, later your condition may be treated simply by administering drugs, surgery, or also various other therapeutic modalities.
Hope this helps ...
