4 days post-op: pain in lower left abdomen & diarrhea

Had my davinci hysterectomy done on 4/18. I was fairly sick after I woke up (anesthesia has never been my friend). Had lots of pain when my bladder was full and I peed A LOT that first night. Passed gas finally on the day after and ate a meal. Went home around noon the day after surgery. Was feeling pretty good these last couple of days; had some off and on gas pain and of course some incision pain. Today, I woke up feeling nauseous, had diarrhea (which was an issue pre-surgery as well), and had pain in my lower left abdomen (which I initially thought was gas) as well as an achy pain in the area just to the left of my vaginal entrance. I probably made the mistake of trying to eat normally yesterday, which may be contributing to all of this. Anyone else experience anything like this?

The lower left pain sounds like maybe bowel pain, I get discomfort there still after 4 weeks when my bowel is full or gassy. Speak to your doctor if you think it is out of the norm

Re: 4 days post-op: pain in lower left abdomen & diarrhea

Hi. I too had diarrhia after the DVH and the same thing before surgery as well. My dr ran a stool test to make sure I had no bacteria (which I didnt think I did) and it came back negative. I think my issues was from the pain meds. Once i came off of those and stuck with tylenol it helped a lot and my stomach normalized again. My dr said it was fine to take some imodium. But I would call and mention it to your dr and see what he suggests.

the pains I had too. I still do off and on. I think it is just from all the work in there and maybe the gas too. Remember you still very early post op so hang in there. Rest lots. I stayed on the couch the first week with pillows behind me and under my legs and one on my stomach for support.
((hugs)) hope you feel better soon.
