Good night, I want to ask and consult. 1.5 months ago I gave birth to a cesarean section. I have been feeling pain in the ribs under the right breast for several days. Until u0026sup2; to stand up straight and breathe even more pain. I am breastfeeding, does this have anything to do with breast milk or something else? 2 days ago I had been taking the medicine “Godong Ijo” so it was not strong enough to withstand the pain that gets to the back, after taking the medicine the pain subsided. But I don’t know where I slept wrong or how I wake up feeling sick again. If I press the pain rises to the top and I have not had time to see a doctor. Please consult … thank you very much 🙏

Hi Heviana,


There are various things that can cause pain in the lower right chest, namely:

Physical injury or trauma
Muscle or soft tissue irritation around the chest
Cartilage inflammation (costochondritis), fractures or broken bones
As a result of infection or inflammation, for example breast inflammation (mastitis) that often occurs in breastfeeding women
Nerve disorders

Cesarean sectio (cesarean) field of surgery is not related to the chest cavity so it is unlikely that the complaint you experience is related to your history of surgery. However, if the complaint occurs after the surgical procedure then you should consult with the doctor who treats you to ensure the cause of the complaint in order to get the appropriate treatment.


You should also see a doctor if a complaint that arises is very severe or there are other complaints such as fever, nausea or shortness of breath. The doctor will ask for a history of your complaint, conduct a physical examination or supporting examination if needed. Investigations that can be recommended by doctors are blood and X-ray examination.


If the complaint is caused by skin or soft tissue irritation, your doctor may prescribe painkillers such as ibuprofen to help resolve your complaint. If the complaint is caused by an infection then the doctor can prescribe an appropriate antibiotic to deal with the infection and prescribe pain medication to treat your complaint.


The following recommendations for you:

Avoid conditions that can trigger complaints
Perform a healthy lifestyle
You can take paracetamol to help deal with complaints, use medications as recommended, and consult a doctor immediately if the complaint persists or worsens
