Re: I need a good stretch!!!

i remember that feeling!! now, at 4 weeks post-op, i've graduated from baby stretches to toddler to junior stretches. still haven't had the all-out full-body stretch, but i have no doubt it'll be here soon. i can now stretch both legs in bed when i wake up in the morning, at the same time, just gently so. you'll get there, just be patient. start with the little stretches of one part of the body at a time, or one leg at a time, and take it easy...feels so good, but you're right, don't want to overdo just yet...

i think i went over 7 days without a good yawn...ah, what i'd give for an all-out stretch along with a eye-watering, yawn, and arms stretched wide -- that'll be the day!!

Re: I need a good stretch!!!

What's really scary is when I am half awake and start to do a back stretch before rolling over to get out of bed. Yikes, that hurts, especially on my left side. Weird thing is nothing hurts on my right side; it is all on my left side. Haven't attempted a full stand up stretch yet; the ones I do in bed without realizing it are enough for right now.
Anyone else who had TAH have pain on only 1 side?

Re: I need a good stretch!!!

Another June 9th sister here and all I can say is ME TOO ME TOO!

I am such a wiggler and not being able to stretch is making me all the more antsy. I can *sometimes* get a decent baby stretch while in bed but other than that, I don't dare.

Re: I need a good stretch!!!

I can do some stretching. One night I stretched without thinking...It felt good in my back but my right side hurt so bad it brought tears to my eyes and naproxen to my mouth. My right side hurts more than my left. I have a heavy feeling in my right side. I can't sleep on that side at all. I'm going to ask my doctor about it next week.

Re: I need a good stretch!!!

I just wish my doctor's appointment was sooner, I'll be going right on my six week post opp check point. Im only 2 weeks out right now. I wonder if I went to the ER, if they would be able to examine me? Anyone done this? My doc is so busy, I doubt I could get in to see him any sooner.
