Whoknew,
I certainly was unable to sit up for any length of time (less than an hour) without feeling discomfort to the point of having to recline for a while, then try again to sit up. This was quite frustrating since a great deal of my job involves sitting at the computer. It would take me three hours to do one hour's worth of work. It got better around the 11 - 12th week.

Sitting pain

I had the same pain too. I'm 10 weeks post op and its better now. I couldn't sit for any length of time at 6 weeks and still prefer to get up and move around at work every hour or so. Hang in there, it will get better!

I'm 6 weeks today and ditto this post! I find sitting straight up the most uncomfortable position. It puts too much pressure down there. Tonight I went to my dd softball game and found it was more comfortable standing than sitting on the bleachers. I'm hoping it goes away soon 'cuz I go back to work as a dental hygienist in a couple more weeks and I have to be able to comfortably sit for my patient's one hour appointments.

Get better everyone--

I am only 5 weeks TAH/BSO but I feel it too. 1 hour is just too much for me. I am so glad that I am not the only one. I hear of people going to the cinema etc and thing how do they do that? I thought I was the only one

SITTING UP TOO MUCH

WHO KNEW

I CAN UNDERSTAND HOW YOU FEEL I WAS LIKE THAT THE FIRST FEW WEEKS AFTER I WAS MORE COMFORTABLE EITHER STANDING OR LAYING , I THINK ITS BECAUSE YOU ARE PUTTING PRESSURE ON YOUR STOMACH AND THE MUSCLES ARE STILL TO WEAK TO SUPPORT YOU .
I AM ALMOST 4 MONTHS POST OP AND AM FEELING BETTER ALL THE TIME THOUGH EVERY NOW AND AGAIN I AM REMINDED THAT I HAVE STILL GOT TO BE CAREFUL , IT WILL TAKE A WHILE TO RECOVER BUT EVERY DAY IS A STEP NEARER SO TAKE IT EASY AND REMEMBER YOU HAVE HAD A SERIOUS OP AND IT WILL TAKE TIME TO HEAL INSIDE AND OUT .
TAKE CARE AND TRY TO REST

I am seven weeks post op and feel the same way. I keep thinking....when am I ever going to feel like my old self again. I can't stand to have underwear on and heaven forbid I have to zip my pants! I work, so I have been trying to wear long shirts over my pants, then unzip my pants while I am there. No matter what kind of underwear I wear, within a couple of hours they drive me crazy! Sometimes I just don't wear them. Just feel funny at work if I don't wear them, but I think I "have" too.

I am so glad to hear from all of you... I now know that I am not crazy and other woman are feeling the same way. I have gone back to work this week ( at 5 1/2 weeks post op TVH) I can do about 4-5 hours of up and down and then I have to go home... as drivig is still not comfortable.
I go to the dr today for my check up ...we'll see what he has to say about it. I have a feeling he will tell me I am doing to much or went back to work to early

But thank you all for your responses it helps!

is sitting up too much for anyone else?

Hi...I am a LIW so perhaps I am not supposed to post here, but this brings up a question that has bothering me. I usually bounce back quickly from everything, but I know that have only one chance to recuperate properly from this and I don't want to blow it. I told my designated broker that I would be back to work by the end of the first week of April, and my surgery is 3/16. I am starting to think that is just too soon after reading your posts. I will be on floor duty for a four hours stretch at a time. Let me know what you think. I don't have to tell her anything for awhile, but I don't want to get set up in my head that I'll be back working in three weeks if that ain't gonna happen. (My dr. said I could go back to work after two weeks!!!) Thanks, Leslie

I'm 5 wks. post-op tomorrow, and reclining still feels better than sitting up straight. Went to church for Ash Wednesday service last night, and even though it was only an hr., I got really tired. Took a pillow for the unpadded pew, too! Must be the weakened muscles. I'm glad I have another ten days before going back to work, and also that I can put my feet up in my office a lot when the time comes.
