When I first visited Dr. Riachi I had pains in my lower abdominal right side with intense pressure. It was so painful the pains would travel down to my right thigh. I had heavy cramps very intense pains in my lower stomach just under my waist line, muscle tight, and achy. On average, 3-5 nights a week I would wake up in the middle of the night with a sharp pain in my stomach area.
I had a robotic laparoscopy surgery on January 31, 2013. The first week and a half after surgery I was very sore, swollen, gassy, and felt loose and giggly when I would walk. I stayed in bed and would go to the restroom. At first, the area in my stomach that used to have sharp pains was very tender. About two weeks after, the area had a lot of air bubbles that would flutter in my lower stomach. My two-week check up with you went well so that after three weeks I started walking for exercise, as my wounds were healing well.
Seven weeks later I had no pains, only one stitch was still visible, and four minor incision marks. This surgery has truly changed my life. I thought I would have to take pain medication and live in pain, but not anymore.
Thank you Dr Riachi.
