anybody had appendix area pain in side post surgery that doesn't go away

Recommended Posts

I am 2 weeks post surgery and am worried that my appendix may be giving me trouble. I have a dull and then sometimes sharp pain in my abdomen right side. When i walk it gets more intense - 6 out of 10. Always the same place. Could it be gas? Anybody else experienced this? It is always in precisely the same place. It is constant but varies in intensity.

My post op nurse said maybe i was still recovery from the laparoscopy - but was not terribly confident. She said that given I have had this for 5 days - if it were my appendix it would have gotten much much worse. It only gets worse when I walk or after eating.

Were you given antibiotics after surgery? If yes, it could be your appendix and the antibiotics would have slowed down the infection. If you are having 6 out of 10 pain level then you should be thoroughly checked out. That level of pain is too high for having surgery two weeks ago. You should be on the mend and getting bank to normal activities.

Best of luck!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
