Has anyone had bad pain on the lower left side in your belly? It feels like a horrid burning sensation? My dr said it is pretty normal because of all the stitches on the inside. I was just wondering how long it lasted if any of you have had this?
Is the pain constant or intermittent. Constant would concern me but intermittent that is aggravated by movement I would think more of stretching from incisions. I am always concerned for left lower quadrant pain for diverticulitis or ovarian torsion, both of which are constant building pain.
God gave us people to love and things to use, not things to love and people to use.

I had pain in my lower left side, too. I am 1 month out today, and for the most part it is gone, but sometimes if I overdo it or turn the wrong way I still definitely feel it. It is not sharp or severe, but more of an annoyance at this point than anything.
it's pretty normal, i still had pain more than a month out but it was intermittent, most felt rolling over in bed etc.

Yes, I had it too, most likely you twinged something in there, or it could be atelectasis, mine lasted for probably 4 weeks, so I am guessing mine was the atelectasis, and it just needed to re-inflate that portion
