It's hard to say because it really depends on what they did inside. Are you still taking your pain meds? I stopped my meds 5 days after because my stomach was not coping and that was a mistake as the pain came back worse. Go see you GP if you are worried. Any fever or sign of infection?

my pain also moved to the other side in the second week. Perhaps you overdid it. I was thinking it was all good after about 5 days and then I started getting worse and ended up sleeping non stop 2 days in a row and could barely get out of bed my energy was so low. I am still very tired 3 weeks after

Ok thankyou for that its just so depressing feeling like this its been over a week since the psin on the right started and it no better than when it first started, the only things i can do is get up to the toilet and to get a drink and snacks, and that is painfull just getting up to do that, its very tender to touch the right side just under the ribs and around the insision, went to hospital but they are not sure whats going on, just keep hoping ill wake up in the morning and get some relife but so far nothing ...
