Hello, Im having surgery next week with a general surgeon. My problem is one year ago I had a lap surgery for kidney problem on my right side, ever since this surgery one year ago, Ive had constant dull pain on right upper quadrant, my lower cheat area. At first I didnt know where pain was coming but now I know it starts from one my incisions at my lower chest area and spreads horizontally across to the right. Pain is very superficial, either my skin or the muscle layers. Ive been told maybe theres scar tissue near the incision or nerve entrapment, something related to that incision basically.
I have tried all other things to fix pain, except surgery.
Im scheduled with general surgeon next week but Ive been told conflicting things regarding whether I should see general surgeon, thoracic surgeon, plastic surgeon or neurosurgeon. Which one would be more likely familiar to this abdominal wall, incisional pain? I will be gettingg surgery out of country and time is not a problem, Im sure any of those specialists will be able to accomodate me, but I would just like to know which one makes more sense? Thanks
