I think that, as a general rule of thumb, calling the DR is always the best idea anytime you have any concern at all. Especially this early in recovery, the DR is counting on you to look out for any new pain or symptom.
I hope it turns out to be ok for you; there are phases during recovery and healing that do cause different twinges and pains, but only the DR can tell if it's normal for you based on your surgery.
I know I felt worse during my recovery when the internal sutures began to dissolve, leaving my insides very vulnerable and tender. DR said it was part of my healing and for me to take it easy. It did subside, and I continued to feel better and better every day after those few days (more like a week or so) of 'dissolving sutures'...
Give the DR a call and let her/him know what you are feeling.
I AM 20 DAYS POST-OP TODAY AND WENT FOR A 2 WEEK CHECK UP AND HAD THE SAME COMPLAINT. I WAS HURTING WHERE THEY HAD LEFT MY RIGHT OVARY WHICH THEY HAD REMOVED CYSTS FROM BUT HE TOLD ME THAT IT IS JUST MY MUSCLES THAT ARE STILL SORE. I HOPE THAT IT IS ONLY THAT FOR YOU ALSO. BUT DO GIVE HIM A CALL THATS WHAT HE'S THERE FOR - YOU-.
GOOD LUCK !!!
I am four weeks post-op and have been experiencing pain in the ovary area for about a week. It feels exactly like ovulation, if that were still possible. I mentioned the pain to my DR when I went for a checkup last week. He indicated there were many stitches near the ovaries and thought the pain was related to that. It's good to know I'm not the only one.
