Had 3 c section, 1 in 1998, 1 in 2001 and 1 in 2005. Last one doc found hernia on right side and alot of scar tissue which he repaired. Had appendectomy in 1983, scar became infected after so was a bit of a nightmare. Had gallbladder removed in Dec 2007. In last 2 months have been having pain in right side for eg. when I push in where appendix scar is it is quite tender. Pain radiates up abdomen to under ribs feeling tender sometimes there too?? Have had CT scan, ultrasound done late last year and all they could find was gallstones, so subsequently had it out. Could this pain be related to adhesions? Pain worse if I am on my feet for a long time, stressed or sitting for a long time?? Have a very stressful business and tend to brace right side when stressed. Any info would be good. Thanks
I had my gallbladder out two and half years ago and i still have pain due to scar tissue....i find it is uncomfortable when i am sitting at the computer and sometimes i have to lie down...do you find you have to sleep on one side because it is so tender???
i am carrying a little more weight now so that doesnt help...I had Mri and they didnt find anything wrong...just thought to share my symptoms...
Sharks, how have you been doing since you post? I had an appendectomy in 1978 and a few years back I noticed similar symptoms. I have a dull pain in my right side just above the scar of the appendectomy mostly when my belt puts pressure in the area. I comes and goes some times for months. It is not too bad the only thing it is that it always worry me that is something I need to check. I actually checked in 2007 but the doctors didn't find anything but none mention that could be scar tissue. For what I have read I think that is what it is. Thanks I will go again to the doctor and ask the specific question.
