Surgery 1/9- localized pain in lower tummy



Recommended Posts

So I’m past my one week post op. Was doing great and two nights ago I think I may have hurt something. I have been having severe localized pain in my lower tummy to the left of my bellybutton. Anyone else experience this? Called the dr office and they increased my muscle relaxer pills with Tylenol. Took the edge off, but I still feel the nasty stinging pain underneath.

It is probably a torn muscle. I had my surgery a few months ago and I developed a cough just a few days after surgery. During one of my spells, I had an awful burning pain develop on my lower right side. It ended up being my abdominal muscle tearing, the one my surgeon anquored my incisions into to prevent hernia. It hurt like burning Hell for weeks but it eventually healed.

I did this on my lower left hand side of my tummy. I went and got up to quickly and tearing is what I felt accompanied by a burning feeling in the area went to my doctor he said it was fine and normal because of the movement I was making. Told to take it easy maybe your moving way to fast or shifting your body in positions where it’s still tender. Take it easy and move at a slower pace.

I had mine on 1/7 and have the exact same thing; have been reassured by my physician and family doctor it’s completely normal and should go away within 6 weeks. Where they stick the trocar near your belly button and injured near by muscles and a lining on those muscles which is generally the source of the pain. I had another laparoscopic surgery in early 16 and had the same pain and it went away within about 6 weeks.

I was wondering this same thing. I had surgery on 1/10 and had very little pain afterwards. Suddenly over the last 2 days I've had a hot burning pain below and to the right of my belly button. It hurts worse when I'm sitting vs standing and walking. Feels like I've torn something or a hernia but I don't feel anything protruding.

Within the last week mine has calmed down quite a bit and in fact last night was the first night I remember sleeping comfortably since having the procedure

Mine has also calmed down. Not all the way but better. I saw my Dr just as a precaution but he checked me out told me the same thing, that it's normal and should subside within 6 weeks or so.

This happened to me and I went to my doc. He told me that the area I was having the pain at near my belly button was the site of the surgery. Once they pull out your stomach organ they stich the muscle layer and skin so its the most painful area after surgery.

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

Administrators can also be capable of enjoy this factor involving motionless value analyzers of which help area this type of errors. It's not actually concerning advertising and marketing PVS-Studio (well, in some degree, it will be :). Until recently, a lot of designers contemplate old fashioned exploration unnoticed, preferring to emphasis automatically accuracy and reliability and then code reviews. Sadly, quest for you to spotless program code tend to be laudable except for enough.
