Burning /Stinging pain on right side of incision

Hi Ladies,
Perhaps someone has also experienced this? I have developed an irritating burning/stinging pain on the right side of my incision area. It comes and goes throughout the day, having only started over the weekend. I have been very good, as my DH was home with me till yesterday, so I can't say I have overdone it.
I saw my Dr. last Thursday for my 2 week checkup and told her of another pain I had been having since I came home and she said it was muscular. That's gone and this seems to have replaced it. Perhaps they tag-teamed each other? Any thoughts? Thanks.

Burning /Stinging pain on right side of incision

Hi there;

During week 2, I had a pain similar to yours, on the right side as well, it almost felt as if I'd stretched the tissue too much or something because it sure stung a lot whenever I moved a certain way!

I had a sharp pain on my right side during the night two nights ago. It was so bad that it took my breath away and I could hardly moved. I finally rolled over on my left side and it relieved the pain so that I was able to go back to sleep. I had overdone it all weekend, though, unlike you.

Yesterday morning, it was a bit tender but haven't had anything since....

I don't know if mine is normal or not either, or what it could have been caused from.

I hope you get some answers...

Burning /Stinging pain on right side of incision

This is my first post here, but after reading your posts sounds similar to my pains, but I'm just 8 days out, but every day I'm feeling worse, more sore around my incision, granted this is the same spot that I had my 4 c-sections in, I am totally taking it easy, resting, no lifting, nothing, just wondering if anyone else is feeling this?? Thanks~Shelley

Burning /Stinging pain on right side of incision

Your pain sounds like the nerves healing. This can be extremely painful, like a red hot poker and it can take your breath away. However, whenever you have something new and intense, talk to the doctor or their nurse. Ice packs or warm packs (depending on which you like) can help healing nerves feel a bit better. Take care.

Burning /Stinging pain on right side of incision

I hope all of you are ok! I have the same thing, right side of incision, right groin, not hot just stinging and feels sometimes like someone is poking me with an icecycle. I am 10 months out by the way. So who knows? I also had c-sections and maybe it's just a whole lot of nerves firing back up or mis-firing. All I know is I am getting used to it and the heck with it. I have to live my life. I am still in pain just like before the surgery with endo. except I don't bleed. Well I'll take that I guess. God put us here for a reason and if I have to go through this to move ahead in life and maybe care more for others or for myself it's worth it. I trust in God, He is always with us.

Burning pain

I am over four months out and have just started having burning pain deep at my incision. I started golfing a few weeks ago and wonder if I am tearing at things in there. I also wonder if nerves are waking back up or irritated by doing too much???

Anyone else have more than just tolerating answers? I am going to the doctor this week to find out more.

Burning /Stinging pain on right side of incision

my incision area is also still bothersome, mind you no where like it used to be. every now and then it will burn or itch. some days more noticiable then others. i'm 11 months out now. they aren't kidding when the drs say it can take up to a year to feel "normal" again. what is normal anyway?

Burning /Stinging pain on right side of incision

I'm 2 weeks today from my LAVH. On my progress report I posted I am recovering well with no issues other than I started to have that stabbing/stinging pain in the groin area..just above my left 'lap' incision. Seeing this thread of other sisters with the same pain and perhaps no laparascopic incisions tells me it has nothing to do with the incision but rather with the healing inside, muscles pulling, nerves reconnecting etc. I'll just relax more and hope it will go away. Didn't we get wierd pain in places throughout our lives anyway? Maybe we are more aware now because of our surgery and fears. ...?
