Pain under and around Belly Button

Hello everyone,
I had an abominal hysterectomy January 31 of this year. They took everything except my left ovary. Shortly after surgery (when some of the numbness wore off) I began having pains in my belly button area. I asked my gyn. about it but she said she'd never heard of pain in that area after surgery. So I thought that it must be something that happens occasionally and that I would recover from it. It has not gotten better, it is worse. There is the muscular pain around my belly button, but also an internal soreness when I press in the area. It feels sore. Sometimes eating hurts. I am not sure what this is. What organs are under the belly button that would cause this? I have IBS but have never experienced this before. Could it be because of some of the medication I'm taking (Naprosyn 500 mg 2x a day since surgery, occasional Vicodin)? I go to see my GP tomorrow (a new doctor) but I'd like anyone's thoughts on this before I go.

Thanks!

Melody

((((Melody))))) I'm so sorry you're having all this pain since your surgery

I don't know what could be causing this pain, sounds like some kind of internal bruising. I also have IBS and I've never had pain like the one you describe from it. However, since my hyst, the IBS has caused some bowel spasms that result in a lot of pain in the lower right abs... so you never know

I'm relieved that you're seeing a new doctor tomorrow. Hopefully, he/she will be able to shed some on what is going on and is causing this pain.

Sending lots of healing s your way. Please keep us posted.

Melody,
Are you swollen when you feel the pain??? Where is your incision located?? The reason I ask about the incision location is that when I had the hyst the doc used the same incision that I had from a laprotomy and that incision had moved up to directly below my belly button. I have alot of GI problems and when my would swell I would feel alot of pain in the belly button area.

I had an incision revision 2 years ago and my incision is now below my bikini line and I no longer have pain in the belly button area. I think my pain was related to nerves.

There could be many reasons for the pain, definetly worth talking to the about. Do let us know what the doc says.
