So here I thought I was healing so beautifully... aside from tiring easily. The last couple of days Im pinching, cramping and spotting. I plan to go back to work part time this week and ease myself back into my life. Is this a normal part of healing or should I be calling the doctor?
The last couple of days, I've been cramping a bit more also. It was so bad the other night, I had to take some pain meds and hang out with the heating pad a bit. I figure it's just part of the healing. Reading some other people's posts, I feel lucky to have had so little pain, also, the post op pain is still mild compared to what I used to experience!! I've also pretty much stopped spotting but the dr said to let him know if it comes back, spotting seems to be different with each person.....did your dr say anything about granulation at your post op visit?
I saw the nurse practitioner at my post op... I wont see my Doctor until my 6 week visit.... unless of course I need him sooner. Its a frustrating process.... Im a 120 physically fit woman who really thought she'd heal faster be stronger and do more than the average woman.... and Im getting a reality check I wasnt counting on! I just assumed Id feel better as the weeks went by with no setbacks. Not loving this !!
I"m having this too-but it's been ever since surgery-never stopped spotting/bleeding or cramping-so I guess we cannot wait to resume daily activities until we are pain or symptom free and it sounds like we will be like this for a long while? Bummer!
Looks like we are in this together...my doc said that some cramping and spotting would be normal and as long as I'm not bleeding, it should be ok. I'm experiencing some slight cramping tonight as well but minimal spotting. Unfortunately I did have to lift a small step ladder today, not sure if that's why. As far as I can tell, I haven't passed my stitches yet.
Week 6 1/2 now, just started passing little grey/brownish things when I wipe. Pretty sure they are stitches. Maybe 1 every other time. 5th week, Dr. revealed by a vaginal exam, I WASN'T healed. Through a lot of prayers, I can happily say, I'm feeling like week 6 has been a HUGE turn around point. Hopefully this time next week, I'll be back to work! Keep resting & taking it easy!! Follow ALL Dr.'s advice & IF YOU FEEL SOMETHING IS WRONG, CALL YOUR OB/GYN!! Hang in there the WORST is O-V-E-R!
