Help! Pain

I had a major surgery on June 8th. Well starting on Sunday I have developed a major burning pain on my left side on my tummy when I stretch or move.

I called the doc and they told me to take milk of magnesia.

Well now the pain has spread throughout my tummy area. It is tender to touch. It feels like a stabbing burning pain.

Is this normal?

Thanks!

WELL- YOU DIDNT MENTION WHAT TYPE OF MAJOR SURGERY....

WHEN I HAD MY HYSTEREC I HAD THAT BURNING SENSATION AROUND MY TUMMY AREA AND IT WAS TENDER- I THINK IT WAS DUE FROM THE INCESSION MADE- WITHIN A FEW DAYS IT GOT BETTER-

GOOD LUCK

Help! Pain

Here is what I had done this time:

Ovaries & Tubes removed.
one ovary had cysts and cysts around it
one ovary was attched to bowel & bowel wrapped around it

Had a Burch bladder sling, one of the screws worked it's way into the pelvic bone, screw had to be removed & inflamation scaped out.

Bladder had endo on it, they lasered and scraped on it.

They removed one muscle from the rectom area, and did reconstructive work.

Had a bad rectocele fixed.

I had 3 tunnels of infection in the vaginal area removed.

I have a bunch of mesh & stitches & whatnot holding me together.

I have a vaginal & abominal inscision.

I think I covered everything.

I am planning on calling the doctor 1st thing in the morning. All I know is I hurt.

P.S. Thanks for asking!

Went to the doc. I am having a CT scan tomorrow.

Will this ever end?

Oh ((((Sweetie)))) I'm so sorry you're having such a hard time of it

From all the work you had done during your surgery, and after, it is hardly surprising that you're having so much pain Hopefully the CT scan will shed some light on the issue... and it will be the start of the end

The Ct scan showed nothing.

Now the doc is thinking...my body might be trying to reject the mesh materials. I am going to be on meds for 2 weeks, then go back for another exam. Then we will go from there. I really do not want surgery again.

Just wondering . . . ?

I was just wondering if they mentioned that your burning sensation might be adhesions? Adhesions generally won't show up on a CT Scan or any other type of scan, for that matter. You don't mention if your pain is intermittent or if it is accompanied with a tugging or pulling sensation, although I imagine it would be hard to tell with all that was done to you! I sure hope you are feeling better!
