I went to see my Surgeon on this past friday to see why I still have some pain,nausea,chills, and a small fever.It has been 9 weeks since my hepaticojejunostomy surgery.On the whole I FEEL MUCH BETTER..My surgery was textbook,SO FOR THAT I AM THANKFUL.
I got lucky that my surgeon is wonderful.
I had an mrcp that only showed a small amount of inflammation and my bloodwork was normal.
My main issue besides nausea and the chills is pain under my scar.My abdominal sutures are raised and must be hitting nerves.The section of sutures is about the size of my pinky.
I am hoping with time that the sutures will settle back down and stop causing pain.
I was hesitant to contact my surgeon,because it was not an emergency.
I advocate for myself and will listen to my inner voice.IT HAS BEEN RIGHT EVERYTIME..
I cannot stress enough that people that are having continued issues must continue to seek help.I am blessed that my Gastro( personally calls you back) and he personally sat with me and went through every ctscan,ercp,and mri scan to figure out what my problem was, he referred me to a teaching hospital with a specialist , A LIVER TRANSPLANT SURGEON, that also does biliary surgery. My surgeon is fantastic, tells me to text him if I have any issues.
THERE ARE GREAT DRS OUT THERE..You just need to find them.
