Okay ladies I am stumped.

I am 3 weeks post op and feeling good.Tummy feels good other than pangs of pain once in a while. My back on the other hand is another matter. I wake up fine. Go out to the front room and with in 30 of sitting my back starts to begin to ache. Does any one have this problem? ( I did not have this pain before my surgery)
I am able to do very small things around the house. No major lifting and stand for short periods at time.

What house work I have done is to sit and fold close and have the family put them away. Sit on the floor with my son help him put his toys away. I did one load of dishes that had 1 skillet, 3 plates 3 forks, 3 glasses and 1 serving spoon.

Going back to bed and laying flat helps but only for a short while and then I have to get up. I can sit to long, stand to long or lay to long... any ideas what this could be?

Change of body disposition since surgery ? By either gaining or losing weight or changing the way you carry yourself, it can make a difference to your spine (especially lower back).

take care

Hi Angel314,

I am sorry your back is hurting. I have had some back pain too, but I had it before the surgery so it came as no surprise. I see a physical therapist who does therapeutic massage and it has helped a lot. Some of us have had back pain because of positioning on the table during surgery.

I am including a link to a good discussion on back pain that might have some good ideas for you. You are still really early in your recovery so be sure you are getting lots of rest still. Some of this works itself out with time.

Blessings, Rita <><

The most common reason for back ache after abdominal hyst is that your abdominal muscles are very weakened from the surgery and are really not doing their job, so your back muscles have to take over...from sitting, standing, walking, everything. Take that heating pad and put it on your back for a while. Once your abd muscles start getting stronger your back will get better.
