7 1/2 weeks - Pinching pain in lower abdomen

Hi. I had a LAVH/BSO 7 1/2 weeks ago and in the past several days, I've been experiencing a pinching pain in my lower abdomen. The pain is tolerable, no need to take pain meds, but wonder if anyone 7 1/2 weeks post-op experienced this too. Not sure if I should ask my doctor about this. Thanks.

I will be 7 weeks out on 5/30 and have felt the same thing. I just figured that it was healing and from overdoing it. I have started exercising more and doing abs, so I just figured that it was coming from that. Like you, it's tolerable, but last night after lugging my granddaughter all evening and being on my feet all day, I had to take a couple of Ibuprofen becausing I was aching on the inside. My belly was really swollen also. It gets frustrating when you start to feel better, but then the old symptoms flair up.

yes, its so frustrating when you start feeling better and an old symptom comes back. i haven't done any abs, but i do have a 3 year old, so i may be doing too much too soon with her. if it continues, i may call my doctor. thanks for sharing your experience.

It also could be, as my doctor warned me could start happening as early as 3 weeks post op...the nerve endings are repairing and waking up and you may feel twinges of pinching or even a sharp jab here or there...these lasted at least a month for me...but was glad that she warned me ahead of time....

Thank you for sharing what your doctor told you. It is very helpful. Looking back at my log, I've had this pinching pain for about 5 weeks now. Hopefully it'll go away soon.

You are welcome...hopefully, like I, you will not even realize that it is gone until after about a week of not feeling it anymore...hope it is soon for you...happy healing!!

Thank you. I hope it goes away soon. It is just a constant reminder of my surgery. I'd like to return to myself, pre-op, but maybe it's not possible since we did have a major surgery.
