Incision area and below very sore. Incision hard and a bit swollen (5 weeks post)

I am 5 weeks post op tomorrow (TAH/BSO) and think I did a bit too much yesterday (Bank holidays are always extra housework days ).

I know I lifted something and at the time I thought I shouldn't have lifted that, and now I think I am paying the price.

How do you know when you have overdone it? How do you know if/when you have done damage? I assume a sore incision is the norm, but my belly is a little puffed and tender to touch. Is that just my tummy's way of saying this time you are lucky... don't do it again!!!

I am a fool to myself but normally being a very active and a fit 47 year old, and brought up to work, I tend to push myself, or believe I can keep going. I did stop eventually as thought no, that's enough and felt quite tired.

But am just concerned a bit about my tummy. Its hurts/stings more right at the very ends of the incision and also hurts/is quite tender in the area below the incision.
