ive been doing little bit more around the house and about 2 hours desk work ( I run my own business ) I can only last 2 hours sitting as its too uncomfortable.    No lifting. the mad tiredness from week 3 seems to have come back today and I'm getting more sharp pains right up inside. Is this stitches tightening ?

am I expecting too much or should I pull back a bit ?

have my post op visit in 2 weeks.

    ellen it sounds as though it is your sutures tightening. That is typical of this surgery, very often the pain gets worse around the 3rd-5th week. It's your body telling you to rest more.

    Hi Ellen, I'm about the same stage as you but not back at work for at least 2 weeks and still getting some discomfort and still the terrible tiredness. I agree with Matron sounds like you need to rest more.

    It could well be stitches tightening up as suture line healing up. I would have a day of resting up tomorrow.

    Thanks for the quick response everyone. Puts my mind at ease. I'll just have to put the feet up a bit more.
