5 weeks after surgery

I am in my 5th week of recovery an still having a lot of stomach and incision pain. In my second week of recovery, I found that I had a yeast nfection that was causing me some pain that was different from the pain that I was having. Will there be any other unexpected pain that I should be concerned about?

Hi Supertee,

Have you looked at tthe thread "Feels Like Week One All Over Again" got posted about the same time as your post. It might answer some of your concerns.

I'm at exactly 5 weeks today from a vaginal hyst. so my experience is very different BUT I wonder how much you've been on your feet or sitting. When I spend too long without lying down, I start to feel it. It also is different on different days. One day I'll be able to be almost as active as pre-operation. Another day, AND IT'S NOT ALWAYS THE NEXT DAY, I'll be aching and tired.

Don't hesitate to call your doctor.

5 weeks after surgery

I will be 5 weeks Friday. I went to the dr. today. I've been every week since surgery because of my open incision. I t is almost healed!!!! I've been experiencing a lot of pain around my naval down to my hairline and over to both sides. He believes I just need more time to heal. He said they cut through several layers from the incision site up to underneath the naval.I guess if I am still hurting in 2 weeks he will check things out.I had a cat scan last week, but everything was normal but a impacted bowel. that is now fixed! He cleared me to resume housework, but said to back off some if I get too sore. we just got to use common sense. He also gave me a prescription for ambien again, so I can get a good nights sleep. I've only had about 3 nights of over 3-4 hours sleep.I sure hope this will be the last of my pain. I've had more than enough. I am supposed to go back to work on July 5th. that will be 8 weeks. I go back to the dr. at 7 weeks to see how I am doing.
Take it easy and just think" things will get better and no more cramps and flo"
