burning sensation at my incision site

I am getting this burning sensation at my incision site and I am not sure if it is normal. It burns all the way across my abdominal region. Also, I am so tired all the time. I could litterlly sleep all day and all night if I am allowed. Is it normal for me to not want to be awake?

burning sensation at my incision site

I was experiencing the burning sensation for the first week it was pretty bad, I could barely walk from my bedroom to the kitchen without sitting for a moment. I called my dr and asked if there was anything I could put on my incision and I was told it was ok to put a heating pad on the incision the nurse told me to keep an eye on it to make sure there was no drainage and so far it helped a lot I still feel the burning every now and then but its a huge improvement, of course I would suggest that you call your dr office to ask if that is ok but it has helped me a lot and I am now gong on two weeks post op (tah on 1/14) ...GOOD LUCK to you in your recovery and god bless!

It is normal to be tired after surgery. This is your body's way of recovering. Rest when you are tired. Do not push it. However, for several reasons, you should get up and walk from time to time. It will also aid in recovery. It will help BM's and keep blood flowing to your legs to prevent blood clots.

I had an LSH on 1/11. I only have 3 small incisions. It sounds like you may have a larger incision. But my largest incision does have different sensations from time to time. It can vary from dull aches, shooting pains, burning sensation and lately itching. I am not sure but I think these are all normal to a certain degree. But I would suggest that you contact your doctor with your exact situation.

Best wishes to you.

I'm almost 11 weeks post-op and I'll occasionally get an itching/tingling sensation along my incision. I figure it's just part of the healing process.

The burning is probably the healing of the nerve endings. If you're concerned give your doctor a call.

When you're tired, rest, your body is telling you it needs it!
