I had my gallbladder removed two weeks ago and it's went pretty well. Bar the first four days where I was had the usual issues, but since then I have been doing really well.
Last night I had a slight twinge when I moved around, to the right of my belly button and the skin felt sensitive to touch, but I assumed that it may be a delayed irritation to the dressings I had been wearing until recently.
But tonight, I have had increased pain in that area, it's like pain I've never had before, almost like crushed glass almost right under the skin. I can't really explain it, the skin isn't warm , or protruding and most of what I can find seems to be about pain to the left of the bellybutton. All my wound are healing well including the umbilical wound and I don't have any pain there. Could it be a nerve issue?
Any advice would be appreciated, I'm back to work in two days. As long as I know that it'll eventually vanish and not get worse, then I can manage it.
Thanks in advance :-)
