Had a setback

Hi Princesses,
I am 3 wks post op after havinh a TAH, bikini incision, uterus and cervix taken.
My recovery has been going well. I haven't done anything I shouldn't have and my dh is still at home. I was out all day yesterday, appointment, a little shopping and lunch. My dh drove. Last night I had terrible pelvic pain like I had before surgery with all the fibroids. I took some pain meds and took myself off to bed. The pain was gone after an hour. I had no Bleeding. Anyone got any ideas? I have no fever. I feel ok today. I have my post op appointment in a few days.

I think your body is just telling you to slow down. You over did it! take it easy!!!
hugs to you, remember you only get one chance to heal right, take full advantage.

As long as you're pretty sure you didn't really overdo and the pain did go away -- it's possible that some of the nerves were healing. That can be somewhat painful.

However, as you say you were out all day -- that really is quite a lot for just a few weeks post op. Be a good and take it easy..... and gradually increasing activity is the key.

I hope you feel better soon.

Hi lilly36,
I did the same thing( I think) when I was at 3 weeks. I wanted to go some places, thought I was being so careful, but by nighttime I was in terrible pain. I was trying not to take the prescription meds so took ibuprofen and it didn't even touch it, plus it made me sick to my stomach. I had to call the dr. It was the worst pain I had had since the recovery room.
Well, I had to promise to take it slower. The pain was better the next day although I was very tired. It was a matter of pacing myself and not trying to do so much all at once. I hope you will do the same and with rest will be just fine. It's hard sometimes finding that balance.

's, Rita

Sounds like your body is saying "SLOW DOWN, I'M NOT READY YET!"

If it continues to get worse or doesn't go away w/ pain meds, call the doctor.

yep you over did it yesterday. I had two doctors app. and by the time I got home from those and running to walmart to get stuff to self cath myself i was whipped and wanted to climb in my reclyner and rest a bit with my cross stitch. Just take it easy for a couple of days and you should be feeling better in no time.

I did the same thing and found out real quick that I wasn't as well as I thought I was. Just remember that you aren't completely recovered and to take it easy. It will take a while to get to where you can run the roads like you did before the hyst. Enjoy these days when you can relax and rest, b/c it will be over before you know it. God bless!!
