What Does Pain Under The Ribcage After An Accident Indicate?

I was in an auto accident last Tuesday. Female 65 They did blood work, X-rays and Ct with contrast all negative. My main issue is my upper left abdominal area under my rib cage. Have pain upon sitting and sleeping, and in recliner that is getting worse, no fever. Or N&V , but today had blood in my BM. Could I have a bruise spleen?

Hello,

A left hypochondrium pain after an accident may be due to rib fracture or muscle pain or splenic injury or abdominal muscle spasm etcetera.

Until examination is done, it is difficult to say what it is. Please consult your surgeon so that he will examine and advice scan abdomen and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Penchila Prasad Kandikattu
