Hello all, I'm getting close to 3 weeks post surgery of my 180 degree fundoplication and hiatal hernia repair.
Overall, things are pretty good, but I have noticed some abdominal pain/discomfort, which I've been having for about 5-6 days (by abdominal, I mean more or less around my belly button region). I feel it sometimes when I walk, but feel like I really aggravate it by bending over...Either in a chair, or just bending over when standing up, it makes it worse. It's definitely not the incisional pains from the laparoscopic wounds...Those basically went away after 5 days.
I'll probably visit my doctor tomorrow to talk about it, but would appreciate if someone had any ideas on if this is normal, and/or what it could be?
Also, FYI: I had my appendix taken out a few years ago, so that at least rules out one very serious possibility.
