After surgery patients generally should not eat, drink and stay in the hospital until the patient was successfully remove the gas from his body. Why fart important after surgery?
Waiting until the fart into a sometimes uncomfortable thing for some people especially for women. But the wind exhaust after surgery is an important thing that must be notified to the doctor or nurse. Because it demonstrates the lack of progress from within the patient.
As quoted from About.Surgery, Friday (9/4/2010) because of drugs or anesthesia used for operations not only make the patient was asleep and did not feel anything, but it also made the small and large intestine of these patients also 'fell asleep' .
During surgery the intestines or entrails fell asleep and did not do any movement that passes through the digestive system, then automatically it indicates there is no gas to pass through.
After operations are complete, and the person is already aware, then one must work out of gas in the body first. If the gas in the body has been successfully removed (already fart) then it indicates that the contents of the stomach was up from sleep and can work again.
Most surgeons will not allow patients to go home or out of the hospital if it did not fart, because it marks the digestive system is not functioning normally, unless there are other things that make the situation was different.
If someone who can not fart had to force myself to eat, drink or out of the hospital, worried intestine has not been able to function normally so that the possibility of obstruction when food passes through the intestines.
