I have curviture of the spine. I had my infected enlarged gallbladder removed on Tuesday, also I had a hernia repaired. I am still in pain in my abdomen and keep feeling tight chested, I use a ventilator anyway. My oxygen level was a bit lower than normal when I came home. I had been in ICU the first night after the operation due to my respiratory failure.
What can be the cause of this pain, will it just take time, why I am feeling a bit tight chested too?
