Good afternoon doctor, I had an open splenectomy carried out on me exactly 4weeks ago, after an accident. the incision's completely healed but I have this pain in my left side from chest to stomach. I have also taken the pneumovax. Do I have anything to worry about? Will I be able to go through pregnancy? I'm 24 years old. Thank u

Your having undergone a splenectomy shall in do way make a difference to your being able to go through a pregnancy.
The pain you are experiencing is a likely sequelae of your recent surgery and this pain should gradually decrease over time however if it increases please see your surgeon for remedy. The incision also gives pain for sometime but it resolves over time.
