Far Right Hand Side Incision Pain



Recommended Posts

I am 2 weeks post op and my right hand side incision is really sore. I woke up on my right hand side two days ago and its been sore since, by the evening I have to hold it to walk. Does anyone know what this could be?

It's likely just muscle pain. If the incision site is red or warm, that could be a sign of infection.

Well that's a good thing! When I had my gallbladder out in January, a few incision sites were very sore when I laid on them and then for a few days. If it doesn't get better in a few days, call your surgeon. Take it easy, chica.

My surgeon told me it’s where your stomach was removed so you’re gonna have more soreness in that area. I’m 15 days out and mine is just now feeling somewhat normal.

I gave my surgeon a call and she said that that is also the area where I have a muscle stitch so it will take longer to heal. Im probably starting to notice it more because im easing off the pain meds. It makes sense that that's the incision the stomach comes out of, with a muscle stitch.
