Hello doctor, I have had abdominal distension for 3 years .. But I know that I have had this disease recently .. And it was treated recently too .. Are there any other effects or diseases that arise if the abdominal distension that I have suffered from for a long time is treated just recently? Thank you doctor

Hello, good morning Imamal ..

Beforehand, it should be noted that abdominal distension is not a diagnosis of disease, but rather a condition on the findings of a physical examination. Abdominal distension is a condition of stretching or swelling of the abdominal area (stomach). Abdominal distension can be caused by many diseases, including:

constipation / disturbance in the form of bowel movements less than 3 times a week
accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity (ascites), for example due to:

cirrhosis of the liver (the formation of scar tissue in the liver, for example due to chronic hepatitis and long-term consumption of alcoholic beverages)
heart failure disease

Kidney illness

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (irritable bowel syndrome)
hepatitis
intestinal obstruction (intestinal obstruction), for example due to hernia, hardening of the stool in the large intestine, etc.

Paralytic ileus, which is intestinal obstruction due to weakened / paralyzed bowel movements. The cause can be due to inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, electrolyte disturbances, etc.
infection of the abdominal cavity (peritonitis)
Appendix
acute pancreatitis (infection and inflammation of the pancreas)
malabsorption syndrome (impaired absorption of food)
tumors of the abdominal cavity
malignancy of the organs in the abdominal cavity
and much more


It is necessary to know in advance what disease is causing your abdominal distension. And seeing the many diseases that cause abdominal distension, we recommend that you ask / consult the doctor who examines you. We cannot confirm your diagnosis because we do not know your complaint completely and do not examine you directly. In principle, the results of treatment of a disease will be better if the diagnosis is made as early as possible and treatment is carried out as quickly and accurately as possible (early diagnosis and prompt treatment). And in principle too, it is better for a disease to be treated than not at all.


Hope it can be understood and hopefully it helps ...
