Rib Pain


Recommended Posts

yes lots of rib pain here....I will be much more sympathetic to my lap patients from now on!!! My comes on strong, almost like a spasm and then fades away. I find that (like everyone else) getting up and walking around helps as well as drinking liquids at varying temps. It was pretty bad last night so I had a cup of tea, heating pad (whoever suggested this - THANKS) and it got much better. Hang in there! I was banded the day before you! ;)

Thanks everyone. It gets better each day and had my best night sleep last night. I was just concerned because everyone talks about the shloulders and mine was in my ribs (made it hard to breath) And even though walking was the last thing I wanted I did it. Heating pad was helpful and still is. Thanks so much everyone!

Margaret,

I havent been without my heating pad since I got home yesterday. I rotate between my back and tummy, and I have been drinking tons of watered down low calorie cran juice. Everytime I make some broth I make sure to walk up and down the hallway a bunch of times and it does seem to help.

Hi, I am 6 days post op and was doing fine, but starting yesterday my rib around where the port is has been hurting. I do walk it seems to help when i am standing but when lying down and trying to get up is a bad it hurts. I think i will take the heating pad suggestion and see how that works.

Thanks. Love this forum

What you are experiencing is gas. Get some GAS-X.. It really will help.
