4 weeks out of gastrectomy/roux n y

I had a vbg in 1996 whe i was 15 years old. I am 38 now and have had severe prblems for the past three years. Exactly one month ago I had a gastrectomy with a roux n y reconstruction. It has been extremely tough but the past two days i cant even move. lower left pain to the point I cant walk. They gave me pain meds for only 5 days adn then said its muscle pain. gave me muscle relaxers and its not doing a thing.

Dear Golf23. I hope that the scan helps to diagnose the problem and you get the right treatment. It is a hell of a procedure that you have been through. It is still early days. Keep strong and keep fighting.
