Common Questions and Answers about Stomach pain after appendix surgery


656111 tn?1273824339 John insert sedation medicine in my IV - within few minutes - fell asleep just like that. After appendix was already removed and then Dr woke me up, asked me how am I feeling? I first thing when I woke up.... OMG!! I cried my eyes and it was very painful, WOW! So, the nurse gave me three Demerol IV under 30 minutes. For those who already has had surgery know what I'm talking about. After I was moved back to the room - nurse asked me how my pain level was I said 7-8 and still in bad pain.
Avatar n tn My concern is he still having low grade fever and lower right quad pain ( increased pain with eating and some activitys) My question is should the appendix be removed due to potential appendicitis in the future due to blockage causing inflam. and infection or can this resolve on it's own. My research shows majority of these stones end up causing appendicitis eventually.
Avatar f tn Hello! I had my appendix out oct'06.Dr said it was "chronic",I had mild lower right abdominal pain for awhile..had catscans,ultraounds,laparscopy,everything looked ok.For two nights I was in unbearable pain finally went to er and it showed up on catscan,surgeon told me I had a "fecal stone" (hard stool) size of quarter lodged behind appendix prob been stuck for months and it just took time for it to go,almost ruptured,had emergency surgery,the appendix was gangrene.
Avatar f tn The Surgeon, whose nurse called me back, actually told me I should not have any more pain- I then told her I had a hole in my appendix and have been suffering with pain from it for a long time. So, she made me an appt. I refuse to go to the ER but something feel different with me... my stomach is bulging out today, my entire abdomen is burning mildly, but for the past 5 days... I have had what feels like PMS boobs on my right side of my breast extending to my back.
Avatar m tn I complained of stomach pain and discomfort they thought i had a bad chicken pita last night, as did I. After 5 hours in the ER the doctor came in and pressed my lower abdomen and a few medical procedures and and hour later i was in surgery. The surgen said that my appendix had ruptured, and it will be awhile before i was back to normal. I only spent one night in the hospital and had a long recovery period ahead of me. Its now 5.15.08 almost 9 months since my surgery.
Avatar n tn It's also normal to feel bloated and crampy for a while after surgery. It WILL get better. If you experience extreme pain or a very high fever, then it's time to call your doctor. As patients we aren't always well-informed as to what to expect after a surgery. When the surgeon gives us a recovery time of say, three weeks, we expect to be 100% by that time. Not true. Those recovery times (in my experience anyway) simply mean you'll be feeling fairly human by then.
Avatar f tn doctor and he pressed on my right lower abdomen, and I felt a pain there. He send me to have a ultrasound. They found out that my appendix is swallen, that what the doctor that did the ultrasound said( not the technician). And I'm a IBS patient so that might have caused the inflammation. Is it dangerous? Am I going to need a surgery? Thanks for advice.
Avatar n tn I had gallbladder surgery also.Pain following surgery such as gas is normal.Stay away from spicy foods.The doctor told me to eat a bland diet for about 3 weeks.It is possible for a small stone to be lodged in the biliary duct.If you are concerned you should have an ultra sound done or a ct scan.
Avatar m tn Hello, hope to be good I had the same problume i had open appendix and after my surgery i lost almost 7Kg weight. Please help me how can i gain my weight?
Avatar f tn I am now on the birth control pill continuously to help stop the growth of more endo. However recently I've not been feeling well, severe stomach bloat, back pain cramping. Can my endo be coming back this soon? or could it have spread to my intestines and is it now causing more issues?
Avatar n tn In July 2001 I had emergency surgery for a burst appendix, but once 'in'the surgeon also found an abscess the size of a grapefruit and that my colon had ruptured. 5 hour surgery, one week hospital stay and a scar a good 12 inches long. My question - a) should I still be having stomach aches, my surgeon's english was not good enough for him to really explain my condition and my doctor just keeps giving me more painkillers and b) anyone know how on earth I can make this hideous scar less obvious.
329994 tn?1301666848 I had emergency surgery Tuesday morning. Just got home today. I had that severe stomach pain again Monday and finally Monday night went to the ER. They did blood work and my white blood cell count came back at 20,000, so they were concerned and wanted to do a CT scan. So drank the stuff, waited, had the CT scan. It showed that my appendix was inflamed and they said I probably had chronic appendicitis and that was the pain all along. But it didn't explain my other problems.
Avatar f tn Severe stabbing pain around the right ovary a week after my period that only gets worse with full bladder. I also get abdominal bloating and extreme tenderness when touching the area. The first month I had it I was running around freaking out that I had appendicitis due to my huge amount of pain and discomfort. I've had two ultrasounds that revealed nothing. My doctor has suggested my pain could be caused by endometriosis.
Avatar f tn Its been 7 months and the pain is horrible sometimes, i have asked about my appendix and they shrug me off saying It wouldn't last this long! Well what else could it be. Its always pretty much there. Coughing doesnt hurt sneezing doesnt hurt it stomach workouts dont hurt it. Nothing makes it worse. If I pushh down exactly where it hurts and i let go it only hurts a lil more. I want my appendix checkedd bc I would like to get pregnant again soon but don't want to deall with this while pregnant!

Avatar n tn Since then i have been in and out of hopital 6 times with the same pain. My last admission was last week an i had terrible shoulder pain, back pain and lower right pain. At first we went to the doctor's instead of hospital because we knew the hospital would send me home. The doc sent me straight to the hospital. The kept me in for a few days to manage the pain. I have had normal blood tests,ct scans and ultrasounds which cant seem to pick up anything abnormal.
Avatar m tn For a few years I have been having intense pain in my stomach/abdominal area after I play soccer and/or run untill I'm very tired. I started going to my doctor first when I was thirteen about this and she has not the slightest idea what is going on. I read the tag about stomach pains after tennis and my syptoms sound very similar. I am in good shape and exercise regulairly, and it only happens on random days spread by weeks of no problems, and it only happens when I push myself to my limits.
Avatar f tn When i awoke from surgery, my stomach was sooo sore. THe gyn told me that the cyst was bigger then he was actually 10-12 cm....he also advised me that i have a mild case of endometrosis...which put me in tears right away...i also have slight scarring on my left ovary. What confused me was that the huge cyst wasnt on my right ovary, when he opened me up it was on the left! How could he not know that???
Avatar n tn My boyfriend has been having severe stomach pain all his life. it comes and goes. It can happen all of a sudden when we are out, or just at home, or after he eats. Some are worse than others. He recently had an appendectomy, but he still gets severe stomach aches to the point where no matter where he is he needs to just lie down. He has had this happen to him all his life, when he was little he passed out because the pain was so bad.
Avatar n tn I recently had surgery because my appendix had ruptured. But even before that i have had this pain in my lower left side of my stomach. I have had tests done and they have found nothing. The pain comes and goes. Usually after i eat something and walk around it gets very painful. I no there is obviously something going on. i just don't understand why they can't find anything. Could you possibly give me some answers?
625192 tn?1249340730 recently I had my gallbladder out(7wks), even after the surgery Ive had the same pain in my upper right ab. and no appetite. I recently had a ct. which they said was normal, although they also said my appendix was in tact and normal size, I dont have an appendix. had it out 8 yrs ago! I feel really nauseas and still have pain, no appetite and wake up at night if I lay on my right side. the AMs are horrible, pain , and I have to drag myself to work. would'nt a ct scan show ANY problems?
Avatar n tn I have had stomach pain for 3 days now. Last night I was beginning to think maybe appendicitis. But its not severe enough and its lasted way to long. Its right in the center of my tummy...if you pushed on my belly button it hurts. And when ever I am moving around or walking I feel nauseaus (did I spell that right) and of course I can't get in to see a doc till late next week. I'm only 7DPO and I have been feeling like this since 5DPO. Blach! I feel yucky!
1085979 tn?1256508994 About a month ago she was experiencing excruciating pain in her abdomen, and after a series of x-rays the doctors discovered that she had a blockage in her small intestine that was being caused by the cancer.
Avatar n tn The urologist recommended surgery and I agreed. The surgery went well and took care of the pain/infection. On Monday April 2, 2007 while sitting at my desk I got a strong pain in my right abdominen next to my appendix scar. When I stood up, the pain went away. This pain seemed to go away later that day and did not think about it again until the next day when I sat down the pain came back. But this time when I stood up it did not go away.

747493 tn?1249593556 December 1999 I had emergency surgery for a ruptured appendix. the infection was so bad it collapsed my frontal lobes and spread throughout my abdomin. It took four litres of saline solution to clean out and my intestines had to be cleaned outside of my abdominal cavity. A week or so after surgery I became reinfected and had to have my stitches removed so I got to watch my the hole in my stomach slowly healed. Ever since then I've had a lot of pain and was diagnosed with IBS.
