Pain after 3 weeks normal?

Hi sisters,
It is so nice to be able to talk with you. I feel like such a complainer, and I hate it.
I was wondering, did any of you still have pain after 3 weeks? It is mostly in the lower back, however, I feel it in the lower front on both sides too.
It is hard to sit on any type of chair other than a stuffed one.
Just wondering if all this is normal,

Re: Pain after 3 weeks normal?

Yes, I still have pain and I can't sit down on a hard surface either. I brought a pillow to dr's office. How is your gut? I needed a new scrip to clear it out. A lot of the pain in the lower front went away. Now it is mostly bladder pain (got a new scrip for that too) and ouchiness inside. We had major surgery - we are not whiners!

Thank you ACTlll,
By gut, do you mean stomach? It's ok. The fibroids did adhere the uterus to the bladder, so there was complication with that. I see the Dr. on Wed. and am nervous, because he was surprised that I still felt pain at 2 weeks!

Sorry, void, I meant your bowel. I had pain and could not sit at all because my large intestine was full - didn't know until X-rays.

Good luck with your visit! Ask dr for what you need - don't get cut off pain meds just because dr thinks you shouldn't hurt anymore.

Re: Pain after 3 weeks normal?

I'm approaching week 3, I'm in agony almost all the time, I am severely constipated and have horrible gas, Dr gave me medication for these but it still hadn't worked, its been 8 days since I had a BM . Anyone else having these problems?

I am 19 days post op and I am still feeling significant pain. There is no such thing as normal in my opinion. We are all different.
