Ok, I don’t know whether this is a dumb thing to ask or not. I hope it is.
I’m eight days post-op from my 270-degree partial fundoplication and Heller myotomy, and to this point, I’ve done a very good job of not getting punched or kicked in the stomach by my three young kids (no small feat!)
Then last night, I was kind of reclined back on the couch, and my giant cat decided this would be a great time to step onto my belly.
He put all of his weight on his paw juussttt below my breast bone, slightly on my left side, right in the soft fleshy area by the top of my stomach.
Ever since then, I’ve got this on-again, off-again pain in that spot. Nothing incredibly sharp—just this dull internal pain that pops up a couple times an hour in that spot.
I feel like an idiot even asking this, but could my cat have caused my wrap to slip or my stomach get slightly pulled down or anything dumb like that would mess with my fundoplication?
I had previously read about slipped fundos, and they sound like no joke, although I have no idea whether you can cause one by getting poked hard in the stomach or having an animal step on your stomach.
