Re: Need a good stretch!!!

It's worse in the morning when you start stretching .... and then remember why you shouldn't be doing it!!!! I try to stretch a bit at a time, though it's getting easier now at 5 weeks post op.

Wow, thought it was just me. I seem to do an involuntary stretch during the night/early morning when I turn fom my side to lay on my back. I am so glad to read that I am not the only one, I wonder what causes it ??

So weird! I have the exact same thing... happens in the middle of the night a couple times and it's like my body/legs just have a mind of their own. I'm almost at 4 weeks post (tomorrow) and have been "stretching" for about 2 weeks now. It definitely feels better and better every day! Funny how "normal" this website makes you feel!

Your muscles are somewhat tight after surgery. By that it will make you want to stretch. It's human nature.

Re: Need a good stretch!!!

Went for my first post op today and asked about stretching. She said that gentle stretching is fine, but not back bend types (that'd feel sooo good) squats or crunches. If it hurts, stop!! She went on to explain that the internal incision is way bigger than the external incision and it has to heal also and that the muscles are inflamed and tight, thus feeling the need for stretching. Take it easy!!!
