problems after whipple's surgery
I was operated in Jan 2011 for cancer in pancreas/duodenum(whipple's). The incision was just below the rib cage for 18 inches from left to right. I am having no problems with digestion part.But two things are causing problem.One is, when I breathe full,there is a pain below where the liver is.(The stitching extends to my right waste.)In effect,I cannot breath to my vital capacity.The second is,there is no sensation at places on the abdomen below the line of stitch, though the affected area has reduced now.Can someone help?
I also want to know how long does it take to rebuild the muscles of the abdomen.
