I have abdominal pain after 3 weeks of vaginal delivery

I am a female 28 years old. I delivered a baby vaginally 3 weeks ago. My third. For the last few days I have felt pain in my left abdomen above my belly button close to my ribs at the bottom of my rib cage. I am nursing and that doesn t seem to make it worse but ibuprofin has helped it go away. I ve only taken 600 mg but feel a little better. How worried should I be and what warning signs should I watch for to make sure ibuprofen is not acting as a bandaid.?

welcome to healthcaremagic forum.
The pain on left side below ribs is a muscular pain due to prolonged sitting you need to do to care for your baby. Tab. Ibuprofen is fine . You can take it upto thrice daily as per your need.Do not take it empty stomach. Hot fomentation and a muscle relaxant ointment like felini gel locally will also help you a lot.
