Sharp pinching pain (left side)



Recommended Posts

Hey gang,

I started having some relatively sharp/stabbing pinch like pain in my stomach... more to the left of my stomach under/below my rib cage Yesterday. I had my surgery December 16th 2019 and haven’t had this pain since a couple of weeks after surgery...

do you think I should worry? Maybe I picked up my 35 pound daughter too much? Or ate too much ? I’m freaking out but I’m too scared to go get it checked because of covid!

Thanks for your help/feedback!

Hi Nedavsg,

I get those and I also get the feeling of something twisting in my insides, I have no idea what that could be. I am 5 or 6 years out, it didn't happen until about 3 years ago.

I had the same type of pains and occasionally do still, my doctor told me it was most likely my body healing and re-arranging due to the weight loss. its a normal worry but if it is constant i would get it checked out.

The same is happening to me. (Sorry my English, I speak Spanish) I’ve been feeling like sharp - pinch sometimes on my left side sometimes on my right. I had surgery Nov11,29 I’m worry but I don’t want to go (Covid19). I think I’ve been carrying bags for the super, etc but I thought I was healed after 6 months. I feel it every other day.

Medical clinics are going a long way to make sure patients are completely separated and they are cleaning everything really well. Also using a skeleton crew so I think if you take proper precautions you should be able to see your doc. Covid is one thing but twisted insides or an infection would be much worse
