When was your surgery?

If you are newly post op and have lung pain and/or shortness of breath, you should report this immediately. Blood clots are not all that uncommon (I had 3 in my leg a week after surgery) and can travel to the lungs. This needs immediate attention.

Please seek medical attention immediately! I had the same symptoms at almost one week post op and was diagnosed with clots in both lungs. Don’t wait! Better to be safe than sorry.

Please call your doctor right away and let them know what is going on. they will probably send you to the er to get a chest xray, at least. It hasn't been that long since your surgery. It is possible for a clot to form in a leg and break off and travel to the lung.

I didn't get blood clots but I did get Pleurisy. No treatment for it.

Is it under your left rib? Or higher? If it's under the rib then it could be splenic flexure. I get a lot of trapped air here and it can really hurt. Gets worse for me at certain times of the month, or sometimes if I'm backed up or have eaten something gassy. Best to get it checked out though just to make sure.

Is that for me? I'm just wondering how far up in her chest this is... upper as in above the breast or is it somewhere under the rib? That can sometimes feel like lung. Splenic flexure is around the rib area.

No darling. I can't quite figure out why I did that. I'm pretty sure it's a brain fart or total train (of thought) derailment. #snort!

Oh and I like the possiblity of splenic flexure! :)
