    Naughty girl, consider yourself reprimanded! Lol

    It  does take time for the anaesthetic to actually get out of the system and could be that you are feeling the stitches tightening. But you really shouldnt be doing anything more than a gentle stroll at this early stage. Hard i know ive been there, but for the best possible repair job its what we all need to do---- Rest and make the most of it. Lets face it, us ladies often do at least the work of four every day.

      Some have motorised wheels but think unless you are used to using one they will only offer a pusher but at least it gets you out! And if you do you will see what i mean about being on the other side. My daughter and i laughed so much all the way round and be warned it might take you just a bit longer than your normal shop time!    You'll see lol

      Still early days for you yet. If it feels more comfortable using them then do. You still have stitches so that might be making it uncomfortable. Would suggest you wean off gradually to get your body more used to doing things for itself rather than just deciding to completely stop in one hit.

      some people seem to go back to their pre-op bm really soon but others it takes longer from what ive read on here in the past.

      look at the Canadian lady doing all that physical stuff within weeks of her op----- no way would we have been advised to do that!  I read somewhere that we should never expect to lift more than the weight of about 4 cans of beans in one go! Yeah right! Like us women can use that regime for the rest of our lives.

      Depends on what you mean by hurt really, have you tried paracetamol/ ibuprofen? Does it make pain go? Is it just when you need bm or always?

      I know it can be expensive experimenting so how about a suppository, they can be a bit brutal and quick working for some, but you can often get them from £shops. They obviously dont have to go through the system in the same way as tablets or liquid
