I'm hoping that there is somebody that can relate to my "situation" as I'm beginning to think I'm having phantom pains......
A week before Christmas, 2017, I had a cholecystectomy ( key hole) Nothing major to report but the GB was slightly infected and there was pus present when it was removed. I was prescribed oral antibiotics for this and my recovery was pretty much text book.
I returned to work after nearly 3 weeks on light duties, my job involves a lot of bending, lifting and stretching.
Jump forward to now...I haven't had one day where I haven't been "reminded" that I had surgery ie varying degrees of discomfort to a radiating pain in the area where my GB used to be.This is worsened by how physically active I am at work.
After visits to the GP and referral back to outpatients, I went for an ultra sound scan today.This was mainly to check if there was a hernia that had occurred post surgery.
Guess what NAD...so I went off to work and 5 hours later I had a dull ache in my side.
Lying down in bed, on either side, the ache is worsened.
Does anyone have any similar experience?
Can anyone suggest anything?
I'm beginning to wonder if I'm imagining the pain???
