    Have not had this when I had my gallbladder out last year.

    After 5 months  would not think your scar would be rubbing against your top.

    Take care and keep in touch

    Hi Vonnie

    You may just be super sensitive... I had my gall bladder out 3 weeks ago and i feel sensitive just under my breast on the right. and that was healed within one week..

    I would see how it goes and if it is starting to worry you, mention to your GP next time you get an appointment.

    But remember everyone is different and heals at different levels so dont be too hard on your self.

    Good luck and let us know how you get on x

    Hi Vonnie,

    It's possible that you are experiencing a referred sensation.  A nerve might have been cut during the operation, so something is rubbing where your incision is, but because the nerve was cut, the actual feeling is moved or referred to another area.
