Postoperative surgical site pains can make deep breathing uncomfortable.
Pancreatitis can also take days or weeks to resolve, and cause pains as well. Eat light non-fat foods and drink plenty of liquids. Walk as much as possible. Use the pain medication as prescribed. Contact your surgeon if you get fevers or cough with a lot of yellow phlegm.
