Pain at lower left abdomen



Recommended Posts

I've had a fairly easy recovery, however, three weeks post-op, I'm having pain at the lower left abdomen. Anyone else experience this?

I’m also having the same pain and I’m in my 3rd week. People say gas but I’m having a hard time believing there is still gasses from surgery 3 weeks out. Maybe the muscle is healing there?

does it hurt when you eat or drink? ask that if it is not when was the last time you had a BM? and lastly you do have internal stiches as well that are healing, when I was three weeks out I experienced something similar for a few days but it was healing. if it is too painful or you have a lot of concerns I always say best to call the doctor.

It's better now....I'm guessing it's scar tissue healing. No issues with eating and BMs...all good there.
