Upper Abdomen/Back Pain????

I am 14 weeks post op TAH BSO and have been doing great. Especially when I read through these post and see that whatever my problem has been is pretty normal. But for the past several weeks I have been having discomfort in the upper abdomen area with lots of back pain more so if I sit for very long. The back pain seems to there all the time in verying degrees of discomfort, and the abdominal discomfort is worse upon getting up from a sitting position. My dr has reassured my everything is healing just fine. Have any of you had this problem?

Dear Debbie,

I have been experiencing the same feelings, but I am 5 weeks post op. Is that what I have to expect later? I am really looking forward to better days.

Today, I was actually able to cook some breakfast without feeling those back pains. My back is bothering me right now. Isn't that strange?

Upper Abdomen/Back Pain????

Back pain is not surprising for the first few weeks because your abdominal muscles are weak, especially after TAH. The abdomen normally provides support for the back. The back pain should diminish as you get your abdominal strength back (but don't force it!) I don't have any explanation for back pain 5-10 weeks post op. Ask your doc.

We are all different! My situation is just the opposite. I had chronic lower back pain before surgery, due (I now know) to an enlarged uterus pressing on my lower spine. I am now FREE of that back pain!! Has anyone else experienced that benefit?
