Hello doc. Good morning, I have a grandmother in her 80s, now she has problems with urinating. I asked, he said he had the urge to urinate or urinate normally but to get it out it couldn’t be forced like it had to be forced (sorry, tried) even he had to use help with his fingers (to defecate) * I forgot to pee or not * it was because of the BAB like so. Mama had already taken it to the doctor, but the doctor’s answer was not satisfactory and only given medicine to urinate (it seems that there was a lot of fluids) even though the urine was normal just to get rid of any problems. And grandma is in pain at the bottom too. It’s already been docked last month, there’s no change. Mama was confused about what to do, because the doctor was only giving the medicine. And my grandmother almost every day long or back and forth in the toilet while to walk just the difficulties and pain. Please help, doc, how do I treat it and whether the drug is not a problem or not? Thank you.
Thank you for the question.
Elderly often have problems with urination and defecation due to neurological disorders, for example due to stroke, nerve clamps, lack of neurotropic nutrition, multiple sclerosis, and so on. This condition can ultimately make the process of defecating not smooth, must be preceded by hard straining, also feels painful.
Not only because of nerve disorders, urinary disorders that your grandmother experienced can also occur due to other influences, such as hemorrhoids, anal fissures, habit of holding back bowel movements, intestinal inflammation, stones or urinary tract infections, malignancies around the urinary tract or gastrointestinal tract, disorders hormones, psychological disorders, metabolic disorders, dehydration, and so on.
In order for this condition to be handled properly, it seems you need to have your grandmother checked directly with your doctor or internist. Through urine examination, ultrasound, x-rays, and several other supporting tests, often the doctor was able to give him the best management.
In the meantime, you can do the following handling:
Give your grandmother enough to drink, especially water
Ask your grandmother to get plenty of rest, do not hold back pooping, and keep her sex organs better
Give your grandmother a variety of healthy foods, accompany her to exercise according to her abilities, and accompany her in her activities
Do not carelessly give your grandmother medicine, other than those given by doctors
Hope this helps ...
