10 weeks post op, still have 'pulled muscle' sensation

Hi Ladies

Since my TAH/BSO 10 weeks ago I have had tenderness in my pelvis on the right side in a couple of places which are sore to press (just to the right of my midline incision). One area of tenderness is quite high almost level with my belly button, the other a couple of inches down. It almost feels muscular, like a 'stitch' after running.

It is also most painful in the morning when I get up, but eases a little after I have been moving about. My major concern is that the pain (bearable as it is) doesn't seem to be improving at all. Nothing has shown up on ultrasound.

Has anyone experienced anything similar, or have any idea what might be causing it?

Thanks for now, take care

Sim xx

Hi sim
I had TAH/BSO 8 weeks ago. I have similar twinges, stitch-like, pulling feelings in different areas at different times. I feel so much better in the morning and it feels good to be able to almost sleep on my side at last maybe you twist in your sleep perhaps!

I ventured out yesterday but after 3 hours I just felt pulled, bruised and stretched with all sorts of twinges going on around my stomach, I felt stupidly I'd left it too late as getting back to the carpark took considerable effort!

I think this is a slow-heal situation and our inner stitches can take a long time to 'settle in'. I've heard some ladies say that the pain has got better after moving about more and others say a rest helps them most. I really hope you find something that helps.
