Why is my port site hurting?????

Recommended Posts

OK, I've been fine up until last night and it is not going away. My port site feels like it is sticking out. I also feel like I have a bit of gas. I had my surgery almost 5 weeks ago, and never had this feeling except for once. I kinda thought I was in the clear, but now this dog hurts! I can barely get out of my car, sit up from a chair, etc. Anytime I make my stomach muscles work I wanna cringe! Is this a hernia? I took some tylenol and it didn't help a bit. Any ideas?

You probably pulled a stitch. You're not doing any heavy lifting or using your abdominal muscles at all are you? Go easy on it for a day or two. If it doesn't get better or you start showing fever or other signs of infection then it's time to call the clinic.
