It is nearly 5 years since I had my op and I am still experiencing pain on my right side under my rib cage. This can be worse in cold weather. I also get pain at the sight of my chest drain which I had inserted for 8 weeks following surgery as I developed a leak at the join of my oesophagus and my "new stomach" It has been mentioned to me that all this could be nerve damage. Any tips for managing the pain?
