Well, I am 2 weeks past this surgery that was recommended to me for my bile reflux/regurgitation issue that I have had for some time now. The pain associated with this is unreal. Trying to sit up for the first time after having an 8 inch incision through the stomach muscles was excruciating. I was in the hospital for 4 nights and came home, improving each day. After 9 days of making progress each day I started having bad cramping on the right side where the liver sits. These starting coming in waves, and each one was very painful for about a minute. After enduring this for an hour, they went away but I started getting a fever. After a call to the nurse at the hospital where I had the surgery performed, they summoned me back in. I then stayed 3 more nights there as they figured out the infection (high white blood count as well). The cramps continued on and off as well. I am back home now but am still having cramps every so often that are really painful. Just curious if anyone out there can tell me what this is a result of, or what can cause it. I know this was major surgery, and this one takes time to heal (surgeon mentioned cramping as part of what I would be dealing with post op). But at the same time the pain level is sometimes so overpowering. Causing me some anxiety as well as I get nervous about having to back in again. Thoughts??
