ALIF and horrible burning stomache pain.
Hi all had my 8th spine surgery nine weeks ago. This is the first time they have gone through the abdomin. My left side oh my stomache burns/aches and swells. It's very uncomfortable. I finally broke down and called the vascular surgeon who made the incision. (My neurosurgeon had him in the operating room). I know we're not docs but has anyone experienced this? I'm getting very nervous something is wrong. I cannot imagine having another surgery. My vascular surgeon cannot get me in until June 4th. I'm so tired of being in pain. Does it ever get better?
