    Default Pain lower left rib cage

    Hello,

    8 wks out. 2 of 3 healing pains are gone, the tightness pain and acid reflux pain. Good news.

    The only pain left is at or just under the lower left rib cage.

    Specifically, at left laproscopic incisional site. This is where they pulled out part of stomach.

    Sharp pain when on empty stomach, bend, move, full stomach.

    Feels like upper part stomach or wants to "push out" at incisional site.

    Has any one had this sharp pain during healing process?

    Thank you,
    Gary

    I had one incision that seemed to be more uncomfortable than the other.
    Maybe just check with your surgeon that it is to be expected.

    Good question for your surgeon if it doesn't improve.
