Should I go to the doctor?

I was i n a car accident this morning. I felt fine at the time. Now I am experiencing some back abdominal pain. I had surgery about a week and a half ago. I just don't know whether to go or not. Should I?

  • i would, when you get in a minor wreck (especially if you were rear ended) you don't feel the immediate effects of whiplash or back pains until a few hours later. at least they can give you a prescription for the pain, and since you just had surgery you really don't want to add a diff pain to the recovery from that b/c it could prolong recovery

  • It was raining and I ended up rearending someone else. It felt like just a little jolt when it happened. Now I'm not so sure.

  • My hubby was a volunteer firefighter for about 20 years...he said people like you are called the "walking wounded". You need to see a doctor to be on the safe side.
