How long will A&P repair recovery take

Hello Ladie I need to know how long to expect to be in pain here. I am 9 days post surgerys I have been out of the hospital for 1 week and my doctor will not give me any pain mainagment other that Ibuprofen. I had A and P repair and removal of the left ovary and tube.. He said there was quite a bit of scare tissue due to TVH a year and a half ago. The doc told me " It looked like a bomb went off in there". But now he will not give me any pian meds. I hurt . It hurts to sit it hurts to stand. It take a long time to get dresses. I don't know what to do.

Re: How long will A&P repair recovery take

Yes 2012 it hurts. My surgeon was at least gracious enough to say that the posterior repair was the surgery he does that hurts the most and the longest. I was not taking pain meds, but I was still hurting a bit at 7-8 weeks post-op. By then I had worked out not to sit down for too long, as that puts all your upper body weight on your repairs, and to sit on a cushion. Ice on the perineum also helped.

The pain faded out quite gradually and flared a little if I overdid things - mostly sitting too much. Keep on the ibuprofen. Have you begun to do some gentle walking?

Good luck with this,
J
