3 weeks post hysterectomy pain right of pubic bone

When I sit at my computer too long, I start having pain just to the right of my pubic bone. I had this pain a few days after my surgery, (which included a bladder sling, a rectocele repair and prolapse repair with mesh, along with LAVH) and it went away, but now it's back. I have barely lifted anything over a pound or two because I am terrified of messing something up. I do work at the computer most of the day and walk every hour. The pain isn't unbearable, but enough to get my attention. I am now stretched out on the recliner and put ice on it and feel better. I also feel better first thing in the morning when I wake up. This whole recovery has made me very anxious. Has anyone else has this particular pain or suffered with anxiety?

Re: 3 weeks pain right of pubic bone

Sitting up at the computer uses your core more than you realize, including down low - and that's where you had ligaments, blood vessels and connective tissue cut as well as organs removed. Whatever was bleeding was stitched or cauterized. In your case, you had more done with prolapse repairs and a sling installed. At 3 weeks, you may not be fresh out of surgery, but you're still very much in the middle of these initial weeks of recovery. At this point, doing more than your body is ready to handle can include standing or sitting too long, and even walking too much.

After my abdominal surgery (non-gyn) last March, I worked from home on my laptop... from the comfort of an easy chair where I arranged pillows so I could recline. That made all the difference in the world compared to post-hysterectomy where I sat upright at my desk - and had cramps and swelling from doing so. If your computer isn't a laptop, recline against a pillow on your chair, put the seatback to a more reclined position, and shorten your time sitting there.

You're definitely not the first to have anxiety about recovery, but if you don't know what to expect, that can have us overwrought with concern - and stress isn't good for healing. While taking it easy and adhering to restrictions are a must, there's no reason to be paranoid. If your lifting restrictions are 10#, it's okay to pick up a gallon of milk which weighs around 8-1/2 pounds. You're not going to break, and your body will let you know if you're overdoing it. When that happens, pull back and rest... just as you're doing after sitting up at the computer.

I don't see where I'd provided our new member links to you earlier, and I think these will help you know what to expect through these initial recovery weeks:
I'd also like to invite you to connect with your Recovery Thread for women who had surgery the same week as you at Recovery Progress Reports for Dec 20-26. Recovery Threads are wonderful for getting support, comparing notes, encouraging others, and keeping one another company.
