I had a gist tumor removed from my stomach 3 weeks ago. I had been progressing well, but last week, I began having a stabbing pain in my stomach and directly behind in my back. The surgeon said not to worry and gave me a few pain pills. I just had a CT scan that revealed nothing. Can anyone tell me if this is normal or give suggestions on how to find the source of the pain?
Also...although I have the pathology report, it has yet to be diagnosed as benign or malignant. I have been nagging the surgeon for weeks. He said that will be determined by the oncologist that I will see Wednesday, Does this make sense?
Thank you for any help you can give to answer my questions.
