Tips to Recover from an Abdominal Surgery

Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS), MS - General Surgery, MBBS
General Surgeon, Mohali
Tips to Recover from an Abdominal Surgery

As soon as one is released from hospital after going through an abdominal surgery, the patient must make a checklist and an early recovery strategy before leaving home. Do follow the following tips and recover soon.

  1. Do make prior arrangements for a safe and comfortable journey back to home. Ensure that you have made transportation arrangements to go home safely. Use your own car or book any cab or take any friend’s help. Place a cushion over your abdomen to keep it safe from jerks.
  2. Do go for post-surgery checkup. Book an appointment with your surgeon post-surgery. This would ensure that surgery did not cause any side-effect.
  3. Understand the schedule for taking medicines. Usually the patients are given painkillers. If you think you are not getting relief from it then ask your surgeon to prescribe you an alternative. Patients are likely to suffer from constipation post an abdominal surgery. If that happens, intake more fibrous food, fluids and indulge in light physical activities. Patients can also ask for cheaper alternative medicines.
  4. Check for certain signs and symptoms and take adequate steps:
    • Take adequate sleep. There are chances that you may feel dizzy and fatigue, therefore one must observe change in sleep patterns. Have patience. Things will become normal in due course of time.
    • You will also be subjected to little pain from the incision. Take your medicines as directed in order to get an early relief from pain.
    • Draining of yellow color liquid from the incision in little quantities post the surgery is normal. If the drainage continues even after 7 to 14 days with redness around incision, it is a clear symptom of infection. Consult your surgeon immediately for the cure.
    • Removal of urinary catheter from the bladder may cause minor difficulties during urination. Situation will become normal in few days. If discomfort persists, consult your surgeon. 
  5. Identify the following dangerous symptoms and call your doctor right away.
    • Persistent vomiting or nausea
    • Incapability to digest food or fluids
    • Swelling in leg
    • Abnormal body temperature
    • Infection at the surgical site
  6. Maintain a healthy and supervised lifestyle post surgery.
    • It will take few days to return to your normal routine life. So have patience until then.
    • Go for morning and evening walks. Avoid heavy exercises as such activities may cause physical strain.
  7. Take care of your surgical incision
    • Surgical incision should be regularly cleaned or washed gently. Try to keep the surgical site dry until the stitches are removed.
    • After 5-7 days of surgery, the stitches would be removed by the surgeon. Avoid putting ointment on the stitches until then. It will take few weeks for the scars to fade.

Under proper care and supervision, the patient will soon recover post an abdominal surgery and will be able to get their life back on track. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Surgeon.

I have two question :- (1)-mental tension or fearness during passing hard stool has any contribution for anal fissures occurring because everyone get hard stool at one time in their lifetime but only few get fissures in ano?(2 ):- Why a fully healed fissures easily recur after another hard motion or he is prone to get another fissures even after surgery?

MS - General Surgery
General Physician, Jalandhar
Yes, stress is a known cause of type c Irritable bowel syndrome, which includes constipation as the main complaint. Yes being stressful at time of passing stool, or being in a hurry to get things over with can lead to tears due to sudden passage of stool from an Initially constricted state of the anal sphincter muscles and the inner delicate mucosa layer. Coupled with constipation it can lead to anal fissures. Thirdly, as you must have seen, Bhiman, whenever we're injured, healing takes place by scarring, and nothing can beat the original configuration of the body. So a healed fissure is more likely to recur again. Moreover some people have a genetic predisposition to develop anal fissures, while in rare cases it can be a sign of anal cancers or it can be due to several other reasons. So next time you are sitting on the pot, be calm ad relaxed, give time for your muscles to relax, start including a lot of fiber foods in your diet, drink plenty of water, practice stress management, or visit a therapist. I hope you are helped.

Avoid sugar, junk food, fried food and fruit juices. Exercise regularly and test for insulin levels and gad antibodies. These test will determine your course of treatment. If you have family history of diabetes, we can straight way treatment. At this point, you require insulin for few days till the test reports are available.

Doctor I am getting pain in my anal part when I passes stool in the morning. And there is a little part coming there as such I don't get any blood from there. There is a difficulty sitting. I used to apply coconut oil frequently so that I may not get pain. For that I also avoid to the extent possible outside food. Please suggest what to do and get out of it.
