Sitting up for to long?

Okay I am 2 weeks PO today & last night I want to the bowling alley to watch my DH bowl (we are on a leage, NO I did not bowl, only watched) We were there about 3 hours & when I got home I though I was going to die. My back hurt so bad, So i thought I would go lay in bed with the heating pad on my back & when I laied flat on my back it was the most awful pain. I could not relax my stomach muscles. I felt like my incesion would rip open. So painful I was in tears. This morning my Tummy is a little better, my back still hurts a bit.

What could have caused that? This was my first outing too. Was it to soon? I am suppose to take my daughter to the movies on Sunday is that going to be to much as well?

Any advice will be helpful.

Hi Sommer,

After this surgery, sitting should be limited to only short periods of time (15 to 20 minutes) for the first few weeks, as it puts a lot of pressure on your internal healing tissues and muscles.

Definitely take it easy and let someone else take your DD to the movie. You've got to let your body heal.

Even at five weeks if I sit scrunched up for more than half an hour I suffer for hours afterwards

The cinema might be too much for you at this early stage.

You might consider giving it a miss and recouperate!

Take care
