Sorry to hear that you are still having trouble..I thought that your check up with the surgeon went well and he just said that you were doing well, no infections, and that you were just healing slowly and to take it easy...
It's certainly up to them whether you need the new testing with CT and such but maybe after talking to the nurse/surgeon, it won't have to come to that and you can just rest a few more weeks to get better...
Have you been eating healthy and pardon the question..but bathroom issues ok? As other posts have talked about..this can cause so much more bloating and gas pain...as well as being on a recliner or in bed a lot can make your ribs/side very sore...
I am certainly praying for you, and hope that you can maybe take a few deep breaths to try and not stress so much each hour about all of this and let the Dr. lead the way on what he thinks...since the added stress will just lead to more pain, lack of sleep, and then more stress...a never ending cycle..
We are all here for you and let us know how it goes..if you want to just continue on this thread when you hear from the Dr. it might be easiest for us to follow what is going on..
Sending you big hugs (( ))
