What could be causing sharp pain in my upper left abdomen months after giving birth by cesarean?

What could be causing sharp pain in my upper left abdomen months after giving birth by cesarean?

Pain In LUQ: I bet the pain has nothing to do with the c/s. I would see a GI doc and see if the pain is in their field. If it is from the c/s, it is prob from scar tissue but you would not expect that to cause pain in the upper abdomen. Hope this helps! ...Read more

You should consult your primary physician or follow up with your surgeon so they may start the proper work up. ...Read more

My wife had cesarean 3 mo bak and has sharp abdomen pain since last 3 wks, aftr ultrasound, gynae has suggstd that its a blood clot. Plz suggest/help?

PT?: It isn't that common to get blood clot or hematoma under the skin and for it to start hurting 3 months after surgery. Make sure the ultrasound was pelvic and looked at ovaries/uterus as well as abdominal and looked at liver, subcutaneous tissues, etc. If no obvious culprit, physical therapy and/or acupuncture can be very helpful. ...Read more
