I've just had open surgery to remove an 18cm ovarian cyst from my right ovary, along with the right fallopian tube on March 28th. It'll be 48hrs since. I expected abdomen pain, that's obvious but I didn't expect the excruciating stabbing pains on the right side of my chest/ribs. It happens when I must get up and use the bathroom and it hurts the absolute worse when laying back down. Such sharp pains that I can't breathe but short shallow breaths. I shake from the pain. I want to cry but then as I start to tear up, it hurts my whole body. It causes me such panic. My chest feels like an elephant is sitting on it, like my ribs will break. The oxycodone isn't doing much for me either.
Is this normal or is this one of the reasons you go back to the hospital. My whole body feels like I was by a train!
