LSH - Bump, Incision Pain 6 Weeks!

Now I'm getting worried after reading some of these posts. I had an LSH, so 4 incisions, with the largest being in the pelvic area at about 1 1/2 inches for the morcillator. Left both ovaries, no other internal issues, just an enlarged uterus and an enlarged ovary. I'm 6 weeks post op and just within the last few days feel like I'm developing a lump of scar tissue near the pelvic incision. Previously I had 2 c-sections for my 10 lb children, so I have the pouch and excess skin issue as well. As a single mom, I have been doing a lot of general things, but no major lifting above 10 lbs, kept the walking down to 3 to 3.5 mph, grocery shopping but my son handles the bags, the house is a mess only vacuum when necessary but no major pulling or pushing. I do however sit at my desk at work for 4 hours and 4 hours at home for the past week and a half. Maybe I'm overdoing it, but I've felt fine. The new achy pain in my belly button area and my pelvic area are concerning me. After reading this post, I'm wondering if even though I have a small incision in my stomach muscle, could I be hurting my progress? My follow up appointment is next week where I fully expected to be told that I'm released to full activity. She told me before the surgery that an LSH had a recovery time of 2 to 4 weeks. I'm quite a bit past that one! Anyone else have this type of surgery and have something similiar?

LSH - Bump, Incision Pain 6 Weeks!

I am 7 1/2 weeks with my LSH and believe me, my doctor said the same thing...I would feel like crap for two weeks and then by four weeks would be back to normal routine with some tiredness at the end of the day. I am still not close to normal routine yet...had my 6 week last week and she was surprised that I still had incision pain. Gave me some anti-inflammatory stuff - like a super prescription motrin - and it has helped me wuite a bit. Although I still feel like I am fairly active, I have overdone it on occassion and that prompts the belly pain. Also sitting any any one position too long makes it worse for me. I keep moving around every 20 minutes.

Thanks for the response. I've been taking the 800 mg Mortin for weeks twice a day for the swelling. It still doesn't help with the incision dully pain.

I'm hardly doing anything close to normal activity, so feeling this belly pain now is concerning to me at this point in my recovery. I'm normally a very active person, yard work, house work, exercise, so if just sitting at my desk causes my stomach to swell, I can't imagine how bad it will be if I resumed my normal activity!

LSH - Bump, Incision Pain 6 Weeks!

yes i had that done on june 30th. enlarged uterus and adenomyosis. kept everything else. i still have pain here and there, now and then. my doc told me that it will take 7-8 months to feel really good. i sit also, and today after work my tummy was hurting. i also have the skin problem. i have been rubbing my incisions with vitamin e oil and deep massaging it when i think about it. read on here about it helping the scar tissue. maybe try that. i don't have anymore follow up appointments, so be sure to ask plenty of questions and ask for more pain meds if you need them.

it doesnt sound like you've done too much. since youre having a new pain, maybe you should call your dr and see if you can get in sooner than next week?
