7 weeks post-op and in PAIN !!!!!

I had a smiley cut which was secured with surgical tape instead of staples (and for this I am grateful) I have a very clean incision that seems to have healed fine, But I am in pain. I can not sit upright in a chair for longer than 15 minutes without shooting pain in my incision. sometimes on the sides. I can not sleep in my waterbed without pelvic pain. A hard conventional mattress is fine.
The doc did all the tests and says he's never had a patient this far into recovery (7 weeks) complain of pain. he found no infection or other complications.
I still cringh when I sneeze or cough.
CAN ANYONE RELATE TO MY PAIN ??????

I'm sorry you're still in pain. What is your doctor doing about the pain? Is he going to investigate further? Perhaps you could make an appointment with your primary care physician. Obviously something is causing the pain. Please keep in touch. I hope you feel better soon.

I am so sorry to hear that you are experiencing this pain. I am also wondering if your doctor is doing anything for you. Has he ordered any kind of tests or anything? I would think that if you are in this much pain that he would want to get to the bottom of it. If he isn't doing anything, then possibly you should get a second opinion.

s to you. I hope that you find answers and get to feeling better very soon.

I had pain severe enough for pain killers at 7 weeks. My doctor was not surprised, he said some people take longer for the vaginal cuff to heal. I noticed a dramatic drop in pain at 9 weeks and at 11 weeks I only have pain if I exercise more than 10 minutes or do a lot of lifting or bending.

Hang in there,
Marcia

People are wired differently...

If your pain is getting worse, not better - you NEED a second opinion...QUICK. You also need to explain to your doctor that you need identification of your pain and some pain killers to manage it.

It's possible that you have something else going on (could be countless things like: adhesions, neuroma, nerve damage, hematoma, or something unrelated). So you need a doctor's care (one that will find out the root cause of your suffering).

It's possible your still healing at sevel weeks, but listen to your body. If it's screaming at you, then it's screaming for a reason.

Thanks Marcia,
My doctor has told me to give it more time, prehaps I am a slow healer but I have nothing to judge it by because I've never had surgery before. Your reply was most encouraging Thank you! I'm sorry you suffered so long, but maybe this is a normal thing. A ultrasound was done last week and it revealed nothing abnormal. I'll let you know how I feel in at 11 weeks. this coming week 2/10 will be 8 weeks for me. Thanks Again.
