Still exhausted and spotting

Had a bit if spotting today after boding some heavy yard work yesterday like raking and lifting big rocks to build a wall. Did I overdo and should I be concerned?

Re: Still exhausted and spotting

It sounds like you overdid it. Try putting your feet up and resting to see if it helps otherwise stop the spotting. The exhausted feeling can last for several weeks post op.

Re: Still exhausted and spotting

Sister, you are only 7 weeks --- you are suppose to "ease back into normal activities" not jump into the deep end! Please rest. If your spotting lasts longer than a day, please call your doctor. Remember, your tummy is still healing and will be another 5-11 months. Anything like raking, weed whacking, mowing, etc. is going to involve your tummy muscles and all the healing happening inside. How big are the rocks and how far are you carrying them? Is there anyone who can help? I am 11 weeks on Tuesday and can, with care, lift ~20 lbs - but I don't do it far and not repetitively. Take care and go slower - patience, sister, you have many of us being patient with you!

Big rocks but I did leave 3 that were too heavy. Yes I see now I did too much. I think I'll just sew today LOL. Thanks. I do like having this resource.
