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!

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week
