Lower Right Stomach Pain



Recommended Posts

Had banding on the 29th, lots of gas, pain, burping which has gotten much better but now today I have sharp pains in the lower right hand side of my stomach. I do not have nausea, vomiting, fever, etc but I'm wondering if its gas, consipation or period coming on. Still drinking my liquids but this has got to quit! Don't think its a appendix problem, at least I hope not.

Is the pain near your biggest incision? Maybe it's where your port is? Mine is on the lower left side, but every surgeon seems to put them in slightly different spots.

Appendix will hurt half way between your belly button and hip bone. Also, with an appendix the pain will intensify when you release the area after pressing on it.

If something feels very wrong, it probably is, call your surgeon, that is what we pay them for.

Stomach still has some sharp pains but doesn't seem as intense as yesterday.I self ruled out a appendix problem based on some of the issues that I did not have. Went down to Walgreens last night & picked up Gas-X , milk of Magnesium, and a light stool softner. I'm sure I am full of gas & need to expel any which way I can! Thank you all for your answers to this issue that still is pending alitte bit. :( Need more Water I think too. :)

Okay first time was Monday night when walking the basset hounds, hurt all day tuesday. Walked with them again Wednesday night & this morning went to the dr. after being awake with stabbing pains all night long. Had read about Chronic Appendix that doesn't show system & husband/I were freaking out! Dr. states that % of patients have pain from the cut & it will take awhile for it to heal. So no appendix nor Constipation as we thought but a real stabbing pain from the surgery. Other sites don' t hurt so this one has me really puzzled. Hope there is no infection, etc in my bowels,etc. So hubby will have to walk all 3 hounds while I walk beside him. That will be a sight to see!

Am wondering if they cut a larger nerve in the incision than normally happens, due to some anomaly in your anatomy or something...? Total guess on my part, I have no medical background.

Hopefully it will calm down as you heal.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
