stomach-pain

I'm a bit nervous to be awake, but thrilled that my pain will be managed right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> surgery. I know the pain will come as it wears off, but they can keep the epidural in for 24 hours, so that should help also. Roshelle, I will post again after my surgery to let you know how I did. Please everyone, keep me in your thoughts (and prayers). thanks.
I have had three procedures, two where I got sedation and one where I got general anesthesia. Waking up from sedation the first time I felt tired and groggy but no nausea. The second time I got sedation I got a different type and I woke up groggy and hallucinating. I was nauseous, however part of the procedure was waking up with a tube down my throat into my small intestines to make some measurements so I don't know whether I would have been nauseous without the tube.
5 days ago I had a laparoscopic removal of 4cm x 2 cm cyst that apparently was mangled up with my left ovary. The doctor is pretty sure this was a dermoid, but the biopsy isn’t back. The cyst, my ovary, left fallopian tube and some old scar tissue were removed. I post here in hopes that it boosts the spirits of those who are facing similar experiences, as I found a lot of comfort from women online- and far more info than my own OBGYN surgeon ever gave me!
I am anxious to see if Immortal had the general anesthesia because I am cringing in pain for you having to do anything surgerical w/o it! They have the twilight stuff that is not like general anesthesia, it just puts you to sleep basically and helps to erase your memory I think so that you don't remember the pain,etc... I had it with my first D&C and I don't remember any of it- but you keep breathing on your own... maybe that would be an option??
so when he seen that I was in pain he stopped and left. He re-scheduled and I went under for that one. the pain you were feeling was just that GAS. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> my procedure the pain was bad, the man that was taking care of me after in recovery told me to lie on my left side and let them rip!!! As soon as I relieved all the gas, pain went away. The pain is GAS. The nausea could be from them working on you, do not forget your intestines do attach to your stomach. He also found 4 more polyps, all good.
My PVCs increases dramatically after eating when I am having a bad epiosode of them.
But anyway I felt like **** real bad lethargy and the runs for 1 week and now its been two weeks and my strength is coming back. I know it is not from the general anesthesia they give you, no way. Its the Oxy abuse because when I tried on my own I felt the lethargy and it was bad. I am still dragging, and my sleep is way off but Iam up to 4-5 hours now.
Could Darvocet still be causing this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> pain 2 days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> I stopped taking it? Or maybe it's from the general anesthesia? I see all these warnings about liver damage about this drug, so I hope it's not that. Also, is this considered a common side effect, or should I talk to my doctor about this? (Sorry for the multiple posts -- I accidentally chose the wrong topic initially.

Our 8yr old Caucasian son is currently experiencing chronic and debilitating head, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span>, knee and skin pain. He also complains itchy/burning skin/scalp, dizziness and nausea. Symptoms appear to be aggravated with heat and activity. He constantly complaints of not feeling good, has general malaise, fatigue and stays in bed most days. In the past he has had: • [2008-current] Chronic head pain • [2010-current] ADD, dyslexia and dysgraphia.
I had a laparoscopy done about 2 weeks ago had a cyst draine and the dr, check my ovaries and falopian tubes I still have pain in the middle of my abdomen and a sharp pain in the left side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span>. I wonder what could it be. anyone have the same?
I have 2 stents placed on 2 of my arteries 8 days ago and some minor chest pain just 2 days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> that. The ECG didn't show anything abnormal. There was no pain since then but I still have some chest discomfort. Nobody seem to know exactly whether it is normal or not, but I feel a little better after reading this: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.
I hadn't had any pain for a couple of months but now I have back pain between the shoulders, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> pain right below the sternum and even more severe belching, all of which seem to come in 'waves' or episodes that last seconds and occur with varying frequency. Can anyone relate? How long did it take for the pain to go away!?
way, not via laparoscope, and also had a couple of other procedures done under general anesthesia. PLease don't worry about going under anesthesia. It always amazes me that you're awake and talking to the doctor one second in the OR, then the next thing you know you're waking up and it's all over!I honestly don't recall even having dreamed at all while "out"; it was as if I was in suspended animation, where there's no awareness at all.
I was passing large amounts of blood and having severe pain. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> 5 days they took out the stent and the pain got worse. I was released from the hospital on 3/22/10, only to have to go back to the ER the same night due to even more severe pain than the original. Today is 3/25/10 and this is the first day I've been reasonably comfortable. My urologist still says it's bladder spasms. He has now put me on a medicine to help with those spasms. Hopefully I'm over this now.
and won't see me again, but the PA prescribed Prednisone 6 day dosage that seemed to give me some comfort while I was taking it. The day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> I completed the dosage, the pain and swelling was back in full force. No one will see me without a referral because this certain doctor operated on me. What am I to do? I am so frustrated after four months of extreme pain, all I do is cry. I've turned into a big crybaby and that is not me! Help, somebody!
I can't have a nerve block due to my spine. I'll have general Anesthesia, but was told the pain will be increased since I can't have the block. I'm concerned about managing pain afterward since I have Barrett's. Has anyone had knee or hip surgery and have Barrett's? What type of pain medication did you have?
I also experienced pain in my right testicle for about a week afterwards. I was under general anesthesia, so I have no idea what they did to stop the bleeding. I understand that weight is often used to put pressure on the puncture site. If misplaced just a little, it could be the reason why my "crotch" was darn sore for a few days.
My period did get alittle lighter (I guess) but nothing to brag about. I started having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> pain in July??? To make a VERY long story short.....the pain became so severe that I had every test known to man kind done. They couldn't find a thing wrong. My Ob/Gyn just said it's probably Endometriosis. She put me on the pill and said to wait 4 months. I thought I was going to die. I, finally, went to go get a second opinion. My new Gyn scheduled a laparoscopy asap.
I used to think it was my kidneys and the pain was going <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> I had been to the bathroom, now I am not sure if the pain is going just because I am up and moving. I do not get the pain at all during the day.I have no other symptoms ( I dont think) I have had blood tests, urine tests and X rays all of which are OK. I would love to hear it anyone has any ideas what this could be as my Doctor has openly admitted he is stumped. Ta..........
Dear andresgirl, When animals have general anesthesia they stop blinking and in order to prevent the cornea (clear part of the eye you see through) from drying out and getting ulcers (erosions of the cornea) ointment is placed in each eye. Often after anesthesia that ointment will continue to drain from the inside corners of the eye. It should cease within a day or two at most.
At least take notes, and try to see if there is any pattern to the pain pills and the pain-- do they eliminate the pain, but then does the pain come back at a certain time <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> you take them? I am at a loss-- be sure to search for the GI people at MedHelp as well.
Rib pain worried me, I was put on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> coating medicine to heal , I suspected ulcers, it took care of my problem. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> eating my pain would get worse, inflamed stomach lining can cause the rib pain. It was stomach ulcers.
I was readmitted to the hospital and they did a lumbar puncture under anesthesia <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> trying about 10 times while I was awake. Apparently I had too much scar tissue from my shoulder fusion to get through without intolerable pain. When they finally were succesful with the LP, I had a pressure of over 50, which is apparently over double the norm.
For the past 8 years, since I was a teenager, I've periodically had intense pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> ejaculation. This only happens once every 2 weeks or so, and I've had it from sex and masterbation. This pain will happen anywhere from 5 min to 30 min after I ejaculate, and the pain will stop temporarily when I urinate, sometimes when I urinate it even feels good. This also causes me to feel like I constantly have to urinate.
And what about this bloating in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> region, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> muscles...do they return to normal completely <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> the surgery? Please help and if a doctor is listening would you please give me some good advice. I have not had a second opinion yet, but the doctor only says we should do the surgery.
then I am back on the rollar coaster of producing more and the pain is everyday. Some days I can't get outta bed. You get totally depressed, my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stomach</span> looks like a road map that needs a tummy tuck from all the incisional hernias and neuromas. My primary would not give me anything but a pat on the back telling me that it will be ok. I feel for everyones pain. if you do not have it you have no clue how terrible it is. I am in New Jersey also and would welcome all advice!!! I need help!!!!!!!!
*You should be concerned if your pet shows signs of listnessess, refuses to be with people, or displays major personality changes for more than 24 hours <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> surgery. *If you have a general feeling that something is wrong - please call us. *No suture removal is required unless otherwise instructed. *Do not bathe for two weeks post-op. Food and water: Excessive food may cause vomiting. Offer only small amounts of food and water until the day following surgery, and then return to normal.
I never had cramping after my novasure, but I really didn't hurt <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> my supercervial hysterectomy. I am kind-of good with pain. I hope that it works for you as some women never have periods after having it done, I did. yuk.
I can't really add much to Jemma's post, just passing along hugs and prayers for your Mom's quick recovery. My feeling is she has just had the bad luck to develop gall bladder problems, which can cause many of the symptoms your Mom is having. An underlying infection (UTI is a good call, as it can often "fly under the radar", causing general abdominal pain and a feeling of unwellness rather than classic burning upon urination).
