Pain on my leftside right below rib cage.


10 posts in this topic

I need help. I'm 4 months post op. Just recently I started getting a dull pain under my rib cage on the left side. It comes and goes but I feel it more when I yawn or take deep breathes. Has anyone experienced this?

In the summer it is usually a sign of dehydration.

It could be a slight case of pneumonia or a URI.

I'm not a doctor but speak from experience.

I've been getting that too. I have been wondering what it was.

I'm 4.5 months out and I sometimes get that pain as well. Usually if I've been sitting awkwardly or sometimes I just get it. I assume it's associated with the port/tubing/band.

I massage the area with my fingers or palm of my hand and it seems to help it go away.

I get it to but only when I over eat.

Hey,

I get that same exact pain off and on. Especially when I yawn or breath deeply. It often hurts to sleep on my left side too. My only guess is that it has something to do with my band/port??? Let me know if you figure it out.

I get it too. Pretty much every time I eat. I can rub it away sometimes but it is uncomfortable. Right now I think my band is too tight. I got a fill last Tuesday and started eating "real" food on Friday. I have been in pain with every meal this weekend. It feels like there is something stuck in my esophagus. I can't eat anything and I am starving. I'm calling tomorrow to get some liquid out. This is bad.

I feel like when that happens it is the port and the stitching into my muscles because it is sewn there under the muscle... however last night I had a sharp pain cuz I did over eat.

I am 10 days post-op and starting having same pain on left side under rib three days ago. It is a constant pain, but worse after I eat. Talked to nurse today and she said is commonly due from constipation and suggested Milk of Magnesia. It helped within a few hours and relieved the pain tonight.
