Re: Rectal pain when I sit


At 10 days, yes, it likely is. You don't mention what kind of surgery you had or what was removed (you can show it in your profile by clicking this link), but all of us have had 4-5 sets of ligaments, blood vessels and connective tissue cut internally plus organs removed, and anything which bleeding was stitched or cauterized. A lot of trauma, inflammation, and internal swelling. Sitting upright uses our core more than we think. Add to that any pain meds and sluggish bowels post-op, there's a good chance your digestive system isn't operating as it should... many women experience bladder, vaginal and rectal pressure.

Best thing to do is rest for too much activity can make it worse, and reclining can take your weight off of your backside.

Since you've just joined us, you might find these resources helpful in knowing what to expect during these first 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 July 19-25. Recovery Threads are wonderful for getting support, comparing notes, encouraging others, and keeping one another company.

Thank you very much. All of that is so helpful! I’ll be sure to fill out my profile and check those resources. Just FYI, I had laparoscopic and only kept my ovaries. My uterus had extensive adenomyosis and was 124 gms”
