Post surgery back ache

My back hurts something awful, all over. Is this from the surgery or from sitting and laying afterwards so much? The nurse said something about it possibly being from the metal operating table ??

Post surgery back ache

Lower back pain has been one of my biggest problems post-op. I had a sacro spinal fixation. I understand that to be hitching my innards up to my lower spine. The doctor told me that can cause "impressive pain."

I think it's from a little bit of everything--surgery, more inactivity, less stretching, etc. I find my back aches in the evening.

My doc told me it's from the position I was in for surgery, mine was done vaginally... I have found that pillows behind me in my recliner & a heating pad do wonders.......

I have had back pain for most of my recovery. I agree that that I think it is from a little bit of everything including having no more ab muscles to support my back. I get by by babying it. I sit with my back against something at all times and rest alot. I hope it will improve in time.

Constipation can cause back pain also. Even if you don't necessaily feel that you are constipated, until you are back to normal it can cause back pain.

GOOD LUCK

Post surgery back ache

I might be constipated. I did have a bowel movement yesterday (very loose) but nothing since. I feel like I need to but nothing. I've taken 3 dulcolax today, 2 this morning and another one just a moment ago. The pain today, generally everywhere in my abdomen, is as bad as it's ever been.

Prune juice to the rescue!! Hope it works!!!

I had a TON of low back pain - I assumed a lot of it was from laying in that terribly uncomfortable hospital bed. Gas may have contributed also. In any case, once I got home, I used a heating pad regularly and it gave me relief.

Best wishes to you!!

Post surgery back ache

I've had a lot of back pain as well. I am almost 3 weeks post-op TAH/BSO. My nurses also told me that it was from the position I was in on the operating table and that lots of women complain of that. I've had a lot of constipation as well. I try to prop my legs up under a pillow at night or between them if I'm on my side. That helps with the back pain. As far as the abdominal pain, I'd cut way back on the Dulcolax and just try stool softeners. The Dulcolax (or any laxative for that matter) will cause abdominal cramping that REALLY hurts! (Believe me...I ended up in the ER dehydrated and cramping like crazy.) I hope you are feeling lots better SOON! What a journey this is.
