Pain Management

Left Abdominal Area Pain

08/09/2007

Question:

I had a my third c-section eight years ago and I have a sharp constant pain around the left side of the incision and it is hard around it, what can cause this pain? I also have pain in the lower right hip joint, could these be connected?

Answer:

I am not sure if both pain are connected, the incision pain could be coming for a left suture, or possibly a small neuroma.
