Medication reaction: Could be from medications you have been given postoperatively. It could be from the actual surgery and any sutures or other things they used during the surgery. If you are having fevers or weakness or weird vaginal discharge then get it checked out in person. Otherwise you are safe to wait it out and see if symptoms will improve for another 4-5 days. ...Read more

Belly Pain (Definition)

Abdominal pain is pain that you feel anywhere between your chest and groin. This is often referred to as the stomach region or belly. Almost everyone experiences pain in the abdomen at one time or another. Most of the time, it is not caused by a serious medical problem. There are many organs in the abdomen. Pain in the abdomen can originate from any one of them, including: Organs related to digestion -- the end of the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas The aorta -- a large blood vessel that runs straight down the inside of the abdomen The appendix -- an organ in the lower right abdomen that no longer serves much function The kidneys -- two bean-shaped organs that lie deep within the abdominal cavity The spleen -- an organ involved in blood maintenance and infection control However, the pain may start from somewhere else -- like your chest or pelvic area. You may also have a generalized infection, such as the flu or strep throat, that affects many parts of your body. The intensity of the pain does not always reflect the seriousness of the condition causing the pain. Severe abdominal pain can be from mild conditions, such as gas or the cramping of viral gastroenteritis. On the other hand, relatively mild pain or no pain may be present with life-threatening conditions, such as cancer of the ...Read more

From last 1.5 months, pain on right side of chest till back, ultrasound whole abdomen diagone kidney stone 5mm & chest xray normal, I do gyming?

See answer: If kidney stone is in your right kidney and if question is whether kidney stone is the cause of your described pain, the answer is "possibly" if no other valid cause of your pain has been established. That said, a 5 mm renal stone in a young adult has the potential to cause problems at some point, and certainly not unreasonable to recommend eswl treatment regardless of whether it is symptomatic. ...Read more
