Why Do You Experience Pain In Your Lower Right Abdomen After Surgery?
I am 17 years old, female, I had an incisional hernia surgery 2 months ago, because my appendix surgery was not good, but why do I have abdominal pain on the lower right side? What caused that? After urinating very painful, please respond, thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Scars on the stomach (including after appendectomy) that don't heal properly can create a weak opening in the abdominal wall that makes the intestine or other structures in the abdominal cavity prone to herniation (sticking out). This condition is called an incisional hernia. As a result of this hernia, a lump will appear in the abdomen that is soft in consistency, painful when pressed, and can cause the sufferer to experience nausea, vomiting, and quite severe pain. In more severe conditions, this hernia can cause the intestines or other structures that are sticking out to become trapped and stop the flow of blood (strangulation). This condition is certainly very dangerous and needs to be treated quickly and precisely so as not to cause serious and life-threatening complications.
The definitive method of handling an incisional hernia can be done by surgery. This operation is performed by patching the weakened abdominal wall gap with a special net. Post surgery, this web will fuse with other surrounding tissue and will be covered with scar tissue. Unlike the skin, this scar tissue has low elasticity, making it prone to pain when you do excessive movements, especially those involving contractions of the abdominal muscles, including when straining when urinating. This condition is likely what triggers your pain.
In addition, it could also be that you feel the pain in your lower right stomach due to other triggers, for example fibromyalgia, colitis, gastroenteritis, food poisoning, peritonitis, infection or urinary tract stones, pre-menstrual syndrome, ectopic pregnancy (if you have been in contact with sexual), ovarian cysts, psychosomatic disorders, and so on.
You can check your complaint directly to a doctor or an internal medicine specialist. If it is suspected that this pain appears related to your previous surgery history, the doctor may also refer you to a surgeon for further treatment. As an initial treatment, you can first relieve the pain that appears with a warm compress, limit excessive activity, drink more warm water, eat more regularly, do not hold back the urge to urinate or defecate, and first take paracetamol to reduce pain. emerging.
