I had surgery that had complications on June 6.  It was intended to be laporoscopic, but had to be an open surgery after the dr. nicked my aorta and had to call for back-up with a vascular surgeon.  I lost quite a bit of  blood.  Now, three weeks post-op, I have a lot of stomach pain and don't know whether it's a matter of the muscles being damaged from the incision, or whether it is something to be concerned about.  Needless to say, I am a bit wary of doctors right now.
Please respond, any post-op people.

sgbounty, I hope you are doing much better by now.  I didn't have to have such an invasive surgery as you did, so I can't imagine what you are going through.  Have you spoken with your doctor?  Please let us know how you are doing.
