Hi my dad has a fever, lower left quadrant pain, he is tired and no appetite?
Hi my dad has a fever of 100.8 and he is having lower left quadrant pain and has swelling on the same side and his left arm is also swollen he is having pain urinating and he is tired alot and he don’t do nothing I barely touch his side to give him a hug and he pulls away cause he is in alot of pain. I would like to know if you could help me and let me know what I should do for my dad please his appetite is going down hill and he can’t even finish a cup of coffee.
This could be pancreatitis. Decreased appetite,fever,pain on lower left side are expected in pancreatitis.Get his ultrasonography done. Pancreatic amylase,alkaline phisphatase and liver function tests need to be done. He may also have urinary tract infection. Give him plenty of fluids to drink and start him on antibiotics and digestive enzymes. Consult a gastroenterologist.
PAIN WHILE URINATING AND CONCOMITTANT LOWER QUADRANT PAIN CAN OCCUR DUE TO A URETERIC CALCULUS. HOWEVER SPLENIC ENLARGEMENT OR LARGE INTESTINE DISEASES SHOULD BE KEPT IN MIND. DESCENDING COLON,SIGMOID COLON CONDITIONS CAN PRESENT IN THIS WAY. A CT ABDOMEN WILL GIVE A CLUE.
your dad may be having some intra abdominal pathology causing the pain. needs a abdominal scan to come to a diagnosis. feeling tired,nausea,weight loss can be due to abdominal koch’s. Get his blood checked for IgG, IgM and ELISA for kochs. A ct scan of abdomen with contrast will be helpful to rule out other pathologies
Hi and welcome to questiondictors.com
If he is feverish and a swelling is present in his lower limb you need to take him to ER to check with doplex for venous disorder and some kidney function tests..
