Just want a good stretch!

OK, I have complained about really important stuff here in the post-op forum so this may seem a trifle silly.

I just want to be able to have a real good stretch when I get up in the morning! Every time I try, my belly hurts too much. Oh to be able to stretch again!

OK, I'm done complainin about nothing! LOL

Just want a good stretch!

I know what you mean!!!! when I stretch out in the a.m. I get a weird jelly quivery feeling that sort of hurts and mostly just feels like I can't control my muscles (well, I suppose I actually CAN'T!!)

hope it goes away soon!

please forgive me for I do understand, I love to stretch and it was quite some time before I could stretch really well! Give it some time then stretch away!

Just want a good stretch!

I try to do little mini stretches before I get out of bed in the morning. Just my legs then my arms and neck. I know it is not the same but at least I try to fool myself into believing it's almost the same feeling. Mind games keep the mind young.

Just want a good stretch!

Oh I know!!!! I used to wake up in those early weeks with my whole body just yearning to stretch - would watch my family doing so whilst getting up and just long to do the same - am now nearly eight weeks post op and can take long early morning stretches whilst waking up and they feel wonderful - you'll be there soon - best wishes Debby

Just want a good stretch!

I had a TAH and would wake up stretching and realize that I shouldn't be doing that. Know how hard it is to stop a stretch once it's started? Whew! All I could do was curl my pelvis up until the stretching impulse stopped so I wouldn't rip my incisions open. Seems like I was stretching gently after a few weeks though. Soon!
