If only 2 days post: Op, ; with no pain, just a couple of days more ambulate if you can- my spouse was actually laid up for over a week with post op symptoms.

It will probably ...: Resolve in the next few days. 2 days postop is still very early postop -- the stomach and intestines may still be somewhat sluggish. Her surgeon should be able to prescribe some kind of anti-nausea medicine. If it continues to be a bothersome problem, follow-up with the surgeon.

Pain medications?: If you are taking pain medications, they may cause nausea. However if this is not the case and the problem has been present for more than a week or getting worse at any time, do check with the surgeon asap.

A 44-year-old member asked:

I fell and hurt my hand. I had an x-ray, which showed no fracture. But I still have a terrible pain. What can I do?

Depends: X-rays show bones and their relationship to each other. An x-ray will not show crushed tissue, though it will show swelling. Swelling makes nerves send pain signals to the brain. Pain medication (anti-inflammatories) will help, as will elevation, immobilization and resting the hand. If not sure what was injured, go see your local hand surgeon for expert evaluation, make sure ligaments are ok.

Lymph nodes: Doing breast cancer surgery the lymph nodes are removed. This causes the lymphatic fluid to back up in the arm.

May or may not: Gross blood in the urine with flank pain until proven otherwise can be a sign of kidney stones. Uti typically starts from the bladder and if left untreated can potentially travel to to the kidneys with serious consequences. Follow where the pain the starts. Stone starts from the back vs UTI from the bladder.
