Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi girls it's been a while since last post, I am 9 weeks post TAH BSO and my stomach is very painful, I can't even touch it as it feels like an electric shock, very swollen and stabbing pain on right side unsure if I can still cause damage by pulling. Please advise if normal xxx

    Hi Nicola

    It's still very early days yet.

    The stabbing is probably just the nerve endings.

    You still need to be very careful with stretching and lifting of things.

    I used to put a cold press on my tummy to help with the swelling or if I over stretched.

    The swelling will continue for a few months yet. I had my TAH BSO in April and still get the swelly belly on the odd day, and the incision line still gets red and sore.

    Just continue to take things slowly and go back to your GP if you still have concerns.

    Hi Nicola

    I had my op done in April and my stomach has been very tight and pulling for the last week and quite swelly too so it takes a lot longer than the 3 months I was led to believe!

    I had TAH and BSO in February. Probably took a good 5 months for me to get almost back to normal. But still, at nearly 9 months post op, I have tender stomach at times and still aches some days. Def takes more than the 3 months or 6 weeks as one gp told me, LOL.!

    You should get it checked out.  It could be due to adhesions or even stitches that didn't dissolve.  So many things can cause it.  That you say "electric shock" tells me nerves are related.  Again, this is my opinion only but so many things can be causing that so you need to consult with your doctor.  Good luck.
