Post-laproscopic pyeloplasty PAIN
On 6/10/10, I had a laproscopic pyeloplasty to repair my left-sided Urethropelvic Junction Obstruction (UPJ). After the procedure, I was hospitalized for 4 days. It is now 7/26/10 and I'm still having abdomen pain at the site where the surgeon said he made an incision to put the camera through. He said he had to stitch some tissue beneath my skin at this spot. I am still having moderate pain that still hasn't gotten any better since the surgery at this site in my abdomen. When my stent was removed last Friday, the pain became slightly worse at this place. I'd rate it a 6 on the pain scale. Has anyone else out there had the same pain? If so, how long did it last and did it ever go away? If it doesn't go away, what should I do next as far as seeking treatment? I just lost my medical insurance on 6/30 so I cannot afford to see the specialist anymore. How long should I wait before realizing that this pain wont ever go away? If it doesn't get any better, I might consider pain management since my insurance is no longer valid, but I'd like to know for sure that this pain won't go away before going down that road. Is there anyone out there who shares the same condition as me? Please help! Thank you so much.
