Trouble breathing/Discomfort while sitting?


5 posts in this topic

I am 8 days post-op and I am just now having trouble breathing while I am seated. The discomfort is only in the area where my port is. This is only a recent thing, and would have told my doc but I have already gone for my post-op appointment. Any recommendations?

Please call your doctor right away. Not good to mess with breathing difficulties.

Hope all goes well. Let us know how you make out.

I had this about 6 days after my surgery and like if I tried to bend over it would hurt sooooo bad. My port site wasn't red or hot and there was no drainage. The doc said that it would be sore for up to 2 months. It wasn't 3 or 4 days later that it was better. Just hang in there. If you are having trouble breathing then you might get it checked out but my guess is you are having trouble b/c it hurts when you take a deep breath so you don't want to breath. Just call your doc to be on the safe side. Good Luck to you!

Safest to call your doc. Odds are it's just soreness, but at 8 days post op a "new" pain is nothing to disregard, so give him a buzz.
