Pulling On Lower Left Abdomen Post-Op

I had a TAH-BSO + appendectomy six years ago. My recovery went well except for pulling and very slight pain in my lower left abdomen. I wrote several posts here regarding this issue at the time. About a year later, I finally was able to determine the cause of both the pain and the pulling: an incisional hernia caused by the surgery.

I realize that any open surgery can cause a hernia. However, when I called my surgeon to tell her about the discomfort I was having -- I had had two C-sections before the TAH-BSO and so knew what correct healing felt like -- she wouldn't answer my phone calls. After going to several general surgeons, I eventually found one who was able to make a correct diagnosis and repair the hernia laparoscopically.

If anyone notices something that doesn't feel right after surgery, right see your doctor immediately. If he or she ignores you or won't acknowledge the problem, find another doctor who will.

I have had this too. I think I am going to press the issue with my doc... have them check for things like this.
