Laproscopic appendectomy done, mild pain between two left incisions, sexual intercourse increases pain. Treatment?

Hi. I had laptoscopic appendectomy six weeks ago. Still having mild pain on left side in-between the two left incisions. I had sex with my husband two days ago and have had a huge increase in the pain in that same area. Today the pain seems closer to my bellybutton. I feel no bumps. Is this muscular. Or should I go back to the surgen if it could be more serious. The pain is relieved by laying down flat on my back. Thank you

Hi haley.
This can be muscular or intraabdominal lesion as well. If the pain depends on your position then it is probably caused by muscle or skin incision during the surgical procedure.
If you have persistant pain which is increasing while touching this area, or is asscoiated with fever and muscle guarding then go to hospital.

Wish you good health
