I’m 4 weeks post op from disconnecting my defective j pouch and getting an ileostomy. The surgery also involved 4 hours of adhesion lysing.
The past two days, I’m getting increasing pain on my left side, quite sharp. Last night it felt like there was a tender swollen fluid or bump under my incision Near to this pain but today it’s gone although overall pain is still in that area. I know I did WAY too much the past couple of days, no lifting, but just being up and about the house, so probably bending at the waist etc more than before. Does this sound like pains from just “overdoing it” so close post op? I‘M worried maybe I tore something structural or an internal suture. I’ve been laying flat resting all day and it’s not improving from rest. it’s not a blockage as the food tube is working fine 😃 It’s been 20 years since my original surgeries so I forgot about all these nuances of recovery, what is normal, what’s not. It’s the weekend so I’d have to go to the ER for medical evaluation, which I’m not doing with the Covid outbreak in our region.
