pain free until day 14, I have constant severe pain

User Profile
Two weeks ago had total hysterectomy with posterior repair and bladder sling. was pretty much pain free until day 14, now I have constant severe pain in upper left abdomen. Saw the urologist and he didnt have any ideal. Dont see the gynocologist for 2 more weeks, should I be concerned? My bowels are moving everyday and abdomen is only slightly distended. The pain is like when you run a long distance and you get air in your stomach, but Im breathing fine, just severe pain, worse at times, but always bad.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the post-hysterectomy abdominal pain that you describe without further evaluation. Avoid activities that aggravate your symptoms. The exact cause for your symptoms can only be made out after careful evaluation. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination and further evaluation to look for the underlying cause for the symptoms that you describe (if symptoms are getting worse, you can also consider having a urgent visit or walk in appointment with your treating doctor/gynecologist). Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
