Lower back pain, what's the deal?

Hi Girls,

I am two years post op and I have lower back pain that comes whenever I stand for too long or sit in a chair (I'm not sure what to say about the chair, it happens with different ones.) I noticed the pain after my surgery. I expected it! But it's been two years! It seems to be occuring more often. I end up laying down on my bed and take Advil to make it go away. I never had back pain before the hyst. so I think it's related. Does anyone know anything about this?

Thank goodness for Hyster sisters! Josie

Lower back pain, what's the deal?

There have been a couple of recent threads on back pain after hyst. I encourage you to read those. They are very informative. I have severe lower back pain that radiates down my leg & foot. I had a TVH in June 2003 & a laparoscopy in May 2004. My chiropractor says that lower back pain after surgery is very common.

As far as having pain after sitiing, I am on sitting restrictions right now. I am allowed 20 min. at a time & should spend most of my time laying down. I do notice that the more I sit, the worse it hurts. I encourage you to see your dr. because it will rule out any more serious problems. Also, if you are able to treat this now, you will be less likely to injure it more seriously later. (My dr. actually said some patients need to be on bed rest or admitted to the hospital!) Needless to say, I am closely following his orders! I hope you find some relief!

Lower back pain, what's the deal?

I forgot to say that my dr. says back injuries are additive. Meaning, if you injure it slightly & don't treat it, then injure it again, that second injury will be added to the first one. That means that several "little" injuries could eventually trigger a "big" one that has you flat on your back!

Also, he says that back injuries can take a full 9 months to heal, even though you may feel better sooner. It is very easy to reinjure your back during that time.
