Rib pain on inhalation



Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone

i am 5 days post op and things seemed to be going along fine until yesterday. I started getting a pain under my ribs on the left side when I inhale. It hurts and definitely isn’t normal. The pain seems to travel a bit up and toward the back of my shoulder. I thought it was gas but it’s doesn’t seem to be letting up. I’ll call the dr in the morning but was wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience. Thanks in advance 😊

Yup. I'm 5 days post op and have exactly the same pain in the same place!! It is the worst of all my areas of pain. Im going to see my GP today for another reason and will ask about it. Feel better!

Oh, I hope you feel better too! If you don’t mind, could you let me know what your gp says?

Hi. She didn't say anything about the pain, but when I spoke to my surgeon's office the nurse was concerned. She said to give it til Thursday to start getting better. And if it doesn't, I'm to call their office. She asked if I was short of breath, which I'm not. How are you doing? Any better?

I called the dr as well. They said if it doesn't get better by Friday I should come in. Yesterday afternoon it began to improve a bit. It's still there but doesn't seem as intense when I inhale. I also spoke to the nutritionist yesterday and she said I could start pureed food. Well, I overdid it and definitely felt it! I just got so excited to eat something other than optifast! This is so hard!

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
