I was awakened at 5:00AM this morning in horrible pain. I had been dreaming that I was hurting and eventually it woke me up. The pain is on my right side under and just below the ribcage. It hurts through to my back and is off the scale. At 5:30AM I decided to call the surgeon on call. This awakened my husband who gave me pain medication that still hasn't kicked in to help. The surgeon on call doesn't feel as if it is an emergency and said for me to come in on Monday to see my surgeon. I just wish he could have given me more information. I am hoping that it is either an ulcer in the small intestine, which I have had in the past, but can't remember the pain, or my gall bladder. Since my surgery, September 13, I have been on liquid and soft diets. So between my screwed up diet and medications, I am hoping that it is an ulcer.
I just wish that the pain would ease. Please pray that the my pain eases so that I can make until the Monday appointment.
Love, prayers and hugs,
