Welcome.

While we can share our experiences, this sounds like something a call your medical team would like to get. It may be nothing or it may not. It may not even be related to your surgery.

Good luck

An ulcer and the inability to get enough Protein and fluids is not uncomplicated. How did your 6 month follow up go? Did they give you any help with the issues? I imagine you are on omeprazole now and that you have a follow up scope to check on the ulcer?

I agree that the pain is probably not even related to the surgery. You might need an ultrasound or CT to check it out, but please do that and try to get a handle on the intake problem. By now, you should not be having issues with protein or fluids. Best wishes and keep us posted.

I would definitely call your doctor. It could be a ton of different things, but personally I doubt it's something caused by your surgery. I've had similar pain before and it's been caused by two different things 1. an ovarian cyst and 2. my EOS can cause abdominal pain on one or either side. lower or upper part of the abdomen. You don't really have any main organs there so it could be intestinal or even diverticulitis. Definitely check with your doctor.
