Getting Out of Bed Post Op Week 8

Hi iluv2digiscrap:

I too have stairs in my house and tried to do them after only being home from the castle a couple days because the bathrooms with the showers are up there and boy did I pay for it pain wise. So from that point on I took sponge baths in the 1/2 bath downstairs, had someone wash my hair in the sink and did not attempt the stairs again until week 3 and that was so-so pain wise. So I did not try again until the end of week 4, and then did every other day. Finally during week 6 I was able to go up and down with no problem.

hi, Hey, I didn't lift a big bag of dog food before surgery, but i've always had some back issues. Our docs have lots of different suggestions, but my doc offered that it was OK to go up stairs. I didn't even ask.

Today is 8 weeks post-surgery. It hardly seems possible. I feel much better the last few days.

Just wanted to mention... my stairs aren't interior household-rise/run type stairs... once I got in my home, I was all one one floor thankfully. The stairs that I was restricted from are a long, steep flight of stairs in our grandfathered apartment building (no elevator). My doctor informed me that I was allowed up the stairs when I got home, and that was it until she saw me again. For the 1st two weeks, I wasn't permitted to leave our apartment at all, not even to get the mail from our mailbox, because it would mean going down those stairs. At this point, I'm allowed to do it once a day only, and I'll admit... those stairs are tiring and do wear me out. They don't feel so great, either.

I'm not even the one that mentioned the stairs to my doctor, my DH did when he met with her post-op while I was in recovery - she let him deliver the news to me that I was banned from the stairs, then she confirmed it when she was discharging me.

Hey lovetowalk!
I'll be 9 weeks post op Monday, and the stairs are good now. They don't bother me at all.
The only problem I have now is in the morning when I wake up, my body goes into what seems to be muscle contractions and wants to stretch on it's own, and it keeps pulling something in my right groin area, it stays sore for a couple days then goes away, then gets sore again! Ouch!

That is exactly what mine does, I'm soo glad to hear that I'm not losing my mind with this one, Mine has been like that since I lifted that 40lb bag of dog food to put in my Envoy, My right lower side has been bothering me since and at time really bad, But I won't go to the drs. On Christmas Day it was at it's worst, I did alot of laughing, and with that comes the Asthma attacks So I really gave my lower abdomen a real work out, Now when I sneeze and cough I find myself grabbing my incision area. So Elaine, what are WE going to do about this?

Hi Cradleloss!

I posted a new thread in hopes of getting some answers. My muscle contractions only happen upon wakening and my whole body is stiff at first then when I go to move, my ab muscles contract and cause pain in my right groin area. This happens every morning!
Hopefully the new post will bring some suggestions or answers!

I would really love to have an answer for you ladies, but I am looking for some also. I am way farther than you two and I still have the issue with my hip right pelvic pain. I did have surgery on Oct. 29th for cuff repair so maybe my recovery is held up? I feel like everyone else is recovering and I am in slow motion. I can't wait to feel better. I am praying we all have a much better new year!
