I am 3 weeks- same surgery, and I have been up ALL night with pain. I have Tylenol 3s and they aren't cutting it. I made a chicken dinner- got my husband to lift the chicken in and out, but I also just started driving. I think I overdid it- and it could be that you did too. Rest- I am calling OBGYN today to check- and get something better for pain. Others?
I'm 2 1/2 weeks, partial abdominal (kept everything but uterus)
I am having burning, stabbing pain on my left side where ovaries are. I had the worst pain getting into the car, took my breath away and made me cry.
I know I am doing more than I should but nothing stupid. Mostly bending to much.
Otherwise I feel fantastic. Started back on ibuprofen a few days ago after taking nothing for a week, seems to help.
so are these pains like in the lower left backside kind of..like on the side but more towards the back? I'm a week out and started having like a dull throbbing pain in that area last night..figured I sat too much in same postition yesterday or something...
My pains are in the front. I broke down last nite (or maybe I should say this morning) and took a pain pill, since I do have some yet. Finally got some much needed sleep that way, since I am also having insomia problems too...sigh.
Brave women!!! I didn't drive until 5 weeks, I was too sore. And soraya, I had the same pain, but mine extended all the way down to my inner thigh. Dr. said it was likely my inguinal nerve that had been pulled out of the way during surgery.
