Stabbing pain on the left side



Recommended Posts

Hello people

I was sleeved on 05.011.2020 (so almost 7 weeks out). The pain started 8 days post op after i was cleaning the house and i was sitting bend for a long time. At firts it was a dull pain but then started progresing in to a sharp, stabbing pain under my left breast, the pain is woresening when i take deep breaths. In the morinings it is not bad, but as the day progreses so does the pain. I am very careful when eating, i am eating slow and i chew my food very well. Since than the pain is constant there is days when it is almost gone but still there and there is days like yesterday i was cring from the pain. I ednded up in the ER three times because i also had (not enymore) chest pains and shoulder pain. I was done a LOT of test: my bloodwork is great, CT scans to the whole abdomen with contrast was great, my X rays was great, my echography also was great. On the X rays there was a lot of gas bubbles in thst area and in my intestine. I called my surgion a lot an he was woried that might be a leak but it is not and nobody seems to know what the problem is. I am desperate at this point because the prescribed pain meds do not work and the injections for pain also do not work.

Has anybody gone through this?

Do you know whether they checked you for a pulmonary embolism when they did the CT? I've many of them because I have a clotting disorder and the pain on taking a deep breath is common with PEs. You're past the point where it would be expected since you're 5 weeks out, but it's worth asking about. Hope you feel better soon. Hugs! 🤗

Hi there :)

i did not ask about that, but i expect it is a standard practice to check about that when day do CT with contrast. I will give them a call tommorow to ask. And i think i am past the point if blood clot since i am 7 weeks out and the bloodwork was great. Thank you Jaelzion fot the support 🤗

Hi

Sorry for the late replay, but we were celebrating ortodox cristmas this week :)

Yesterday i was seen by torasic surgeon who also said that there is nothing wrong and also said that the pain might be from the void where the stomach was and to give it time to heal. To be on a safe side shte refered me to a abdominal surgeon on monday maybe, so we will see what he sais.
