I am 10 1/2 weeks post anterior and posterior repair plus vaginal hernia repair. I was feeling so much better kind of as if I had made a corner so to speak. My son, daughter-in-law and three grandkids came for a Mother’s Day visit Friday afternoon to Saturday morning. My husband did all the cooking and everyone was mindful of my surgery. “Mother be careful...sit down you need to take it easy”, words I am not used to hearing from my kiddos! So I did not lift anything but was up and down and walked a lot plus stayed up past midnight. Today, my second son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren came for Mother’s Day. Again, my husband did all the cooking. I did sweep the floor but only with a broom. I was walking outside with the grandgirls and my right lower midsection started hurting with a pretty sharp pain. I have taken Ibuprofen but it still hurts and my plevic floor feels pressure.
I know I did not lift or pull anything to cause damage to my repairs but I did do a bit of bending. I am sure praying that I have just done too much.
I shake my head when I think my dr said my recovery would be about 2 months!!! If it was not for this forum I would be a basket case thinking that something must be wrong with me and that I was just a whimp!!
Has anyone developed a pretty sharp pain in their lower abdomen? I am not liking this slow recovery at all but feeling pretty happy my kiddos came for a visit no matter!! I am just hoping all is good.
