Left-side pain ...

Recommended Posts

I've been out of the loop for a while and am sure I missed all sorts of posts regarding left-side pain. Man, my left side just kills me sometimes. Every day. Ibuprophen is not helping and I refuse to take anything stronger. For the last six or seven months, I could not figure out what was the deal, what was causing this awful aching. It only oiccurred to me a couple of weeks ago that maybe it's the port. Hello! Any ideas? Thanks!

My first thought is scar tissue because that is what it was for me, but you definitely need to call your doctor first thing Monday morning. Your gallbladder could also be the issue as my doctor put me thru all of the gallbladder tests before ruling that out. The gallbladder does have a tendancy to quit working when you lose large amounts of weight. If it is your gallbladder and you have gallstones you do need to have it out as they can move and cause worse problems.
