My daughter is having pain in her stomach and under her arm

Customer Question

My daughter is having pain in her stomach and under her arm pits. She just had a baby on the 20TH of November. She is breast feeding her baby. She said when she lay down it doesn't hurt that much. What should she do.

Make sure she gets to her OB doctor right away.

That is what you should do.

Abdominal infection needs to be ruled out.

A problem in the chest needs to be ruled out as well.

Exam and testing are needed.
