Funny, I have a high tolerance for pain and do not complain.. but I gotta tell you this one has been rough. Most of site is much better and 4 of the 5 surgical openings are fine. However, 1 is an area under my rib cage that hurts like heck and now has a huge black and blue that just showed up in the past coule of days? This morning, I even had a little difficulty breathing and sharp pains when coughing.. Better after some excercise. Spoke to my Doc and he said I should be OK.. but if breathing continues to be an issue go to ER. Wondering if anyone else experience this much discomfort while keeping in mind that my surgery was longer and more complex than most due to extensive scarring from a surgery of 35 years ago.
