Sharp Pain in left side!

Good Morning Ladies,
Im sorry to be bugging everyone with another question so soon. I went to the doc's on monday and told him about a ''pulling and burning'' on my left side over by my hip bone. He said that it might have been from throwing up this past weekend. Well since monday the pain has gotten worse like everytime i move. My hubby thinks it might just be a pulled muscle. I feel like I ripped the incision from the inside. Im not sure. I do go to the doc on friday and today is already wednesday so I dont know if i should wait. It does seem to look a little swollen. Wouldnt i be bleeding or spotting if i ripped the incision from the inside..its been 8 days since my surgery. Still have ovaries in case that matters. Thanks so much for your time and ladies are lifesavers!!

Hi Lori

You really should call the doc again and tell him it really still hurts. There are many muscles that can be pulled - I pulled one on my right side that hert a lot. My doc gave me some muscle relaxers that really helped.

I don't know for sure, but I think if you pulled stitches, you would see blood coming out below or on the incision site.

Let us know what the doc says. Hope you feel better soon!!!!

Sending you a big

Sharp Pain in left side!

Is it a "SEARING" pain? At about 1 week post op, on my left lower side I had this searing pain and Doc said it could be a nerve waking up??? When ever I moved it felt like I was ripping something and it SCREAMED in pain. (Percoset didn't help). The good news was that is only lasted about 4 days. Maybe??? It always helps to KNOW what the problem is!

I hope it goes away soon for you. It really was pretty awefull! : ) How many days have you had it? One other symptom I had was that some of the skin on that side felt a little bruised or like a sunburn is tender. Hope this helps!
