Sharp pain 2 weeks post op



Recommended Posts

Every time I take in a deep breath or yawn, I feel this stabbing pain in my right lower rib cage. It doesn’t feel like its actually in my lungs bc I can breath just fine but the sharp pain is enough to interrupt my yawn or deep breaths.

Anyone experienced this?

Yep. Had that exact same thing happen when I would yawn. Don't know if I would describe it as stabbing, but was painful. I just attributed it to pressure getting put on the surgery points when taking in a deep breath from yawning. Eventually it tapered off and went away.

Mine went away completely by week 4. My pain was localized to be near my incision on the right side. I was told it was the inside stitches pulling at my belly wall under where they did the glue on the incisions. Previous to that, severe pain I had on my right side was due to constipation and being backed up pretty bad - that was constant pain though and not a sharp short pain due to movement.
