Hi Ladies, just wanted to share my problem with anyone who is having their operation soon. I had my op on 8th October 2 weeks ago today. Everything went fine and I came out on the fifth day. I expected to be in pain because of the extent of the operation so I took my pain killers regularly three times a day 2 paracetamol and 1 ibuprofen. The problem was for the past week my pain has been getting worse I was finding it hard to even get up from the sofa and getting out of bed was agony. I made an appointment with the practice nurse at my GP`s today. She examined me and said it was a gastric problem in my stomach due to the Ibuprofen. I have been told to stop them and I'm now on Omeprazole which I am hoping will work and get rid of the pain.
Just wanted to say if anyone gets a really bad pain in their left side get checked out it may be the pain killers you are on.
Hope all you ladies are doing okay
Love and hugs Babs x x x
