    Pain after laparotomy
    curiouscat426 posted:
    I had a laparotomy to remove my right Fallopian tube and a D&C because of an ecptopic pregnancy on Dec. 21, 2011. I still have bad pain at the incision site. It hurts when pushed on or even touched, my pants bother it. is this normal? Should I go to the doctor's?
    It gets unbearable during my menstrual cycle to where I am in bed the first two days because of the pain.

    My post-op appt everything was doing fine, no problems.

    Hi Curious Cat, welcome.

    If you are thinking about calling the doc it's time to call the doc. Please make sure you do get an appointment and share your symptoms and concerns. Please follow up with the doc, you should not be in unbearable pain.

    Life is too short, so kiss slowly, laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly.
