Hey guys!

I really need to come on here more! I miss posting! But Ava just keeps me so busy.

Anyway, so I have a question. I ended up with an emergency c section with Ava and ever since my surgery I had had UPPER abdominal pain. It's right under my breast bone and center. It's a moderate pain and its almost a throbbing pain. It's been bothering me for a while so I finally went to my family doctor 2 days ago. He did blood work and I have a cat scan tomorrow morning to check for abnormalities. I was just curious if any of you have had something similiar? It's really strange. It may not be related to my c section what so ever but it started right after so I'm just assuming.

I'm hoping for good results with my cat scan. I hope it's nothing serious. :/

No advice as I haven't had a c-section, but I hope everything is fine.

With Chelsea I had a regular scheduled c-section since she was breeched. However about 3 weeks out I started having horrible upper abdominal pain, I wasn't sure what was going on and an ER visit later they found out it was my gallbladder. I have surgery scheduled for the 26th of this month to get it removed, it took a 5 hour attack before I decided that.

I never had problems with my gallbladder before having my daughter, but I did sometimes have pain in my upper abdomen I attributed to my pregnancy. Gallbladder pain can hurt in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen or center, in the chest (it feels like you can't breathe/having heart attack), back and stomach. It can make you nauseous and vomit too.

I heard that when you are pregnant sometimes gallbladders just go bad because pregnancy messes with your entire body and you can come out of having a baby with problems you never had before.

I should also note my my CAT-scan they found fluid in my chest cavity and my heart was slightly enlarged, they attributed it to my pregnancy and I had a followup EKG on it - I was scared out of my mind something was wrong. Fortunately I got cleared for that - though sometimes I will have palpitations - but again postpartum hormones and all.

I haven't had a c-section but just want to say that I hope everything is okay. Let us know how your scan goes. I'll be thinking of you and praying for good results.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I got my gallbladder out years ago, but it does sound like that could be it. I've also heard that people get gallbladder issues while pregnant.

I never get pain at all from my c-section except when I'm starting to get feeling back on my incision. Other than that, it never bothers me at all.

Thank you Shortcake for my beautiful siggy!

I had a c-section and I never felt like this after the c-section. But, I did have throbbing abdominal pain during pregnancy. I had gallstones. I had my gallbladder removed while I was 14 weeks pregnant with Liam. So, I'm thinking that that's what's going on with you.
