I did that too! Jeff Dunham is hysterical. I'm almost 10 weeks out but if I start laughing or start doing too much I still get sore.

Yup...Oh how I remember those days when I would laugh and it would hurt a little. Even while in the hospital, a doctor was making me laugh..... of course laughing is always good medicine but not right after a major surgery.

Always have that tummy pillow nearby!

I watched "Grown ups"...needless to say not a good idea. Those are all of my favorite comedians and I was so sore the next day. It was nice to laugh though.

I tried reading David Sedaris after my surgery... not the best idea. Almost literally "busted a gut"!

I realized I have a lot of funny people in my life. Everyone, even my cats, were making me laugh! Ow! Ow! Ow!

Re: Avoid Comedy for awhile after surgery

Believe it or not, my doctor told me that laughter was good for my tummy. She said that I needed to make sure I had a tummy pillow, but that I should laugh during my recovery. Honestly! So, I did occassionaly laugh with my pillow on tummy, but I avoided anything that would cause me "gut wrenching," laughter! Good luck ladies on your recovery.

Re: Avoid Comedy for awhile after surgery

I laughed hysterically 2 days after while watching a movie. My sister in law was here helping out and I think I laughed more at her laughing at me than anything. My son thought it was quite comical as well and decided to tape my giggles and ows and played it for anyone who came into the house. Having a family that likes to drop one-liners was not easy for the first couple of days and it is still sore to giggle so I try to stay clear of them.

Re: Avoid Comedy for awhile after surgery

Fortunately- or not- I haven't been watching any Telly this week as my sitting room is being decorated, so I haven't watched any gut wrenching comics. But the paint smell and adhesive has made me cough, so that has been painful.

Managed some veg preparation yesterday and sorted sheets and clothes today, but I get quite sharp pains after doing it. I hope that none of us feel pressurized into doing too much, too soon. So, sisters, take it easy out there and get this around you to keep helping!

Re: Avoid Comedy for awhile after surgery

For some reason I got a lot of get well cards that were funny. My DH would laugh at me when I tried to laugh gently after reading them, but I got him back when I videotaped him cooking dinner (proof that he really did make dinner).

Even some commercials made me laugh. Some made me cry for no reason, so I guess it balances out.

Just remember that laughter is good and healing, just be gentle until you heal a bit!
