pressure when laughing

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi ladies.

Is it normal that I feel pressure in my tummy like coughing when I laugh?

And I feel sharp pain today when I do pelvic floor exercises. Should I stop for a while or ignore it?

And I have one question that I can't stop thinking. We no longer lift over 15kg in rest of our lives after operation. I'll stick with it. But is it same if we hadn't had surgery?

Thank you in advanced.

    I'm baffled about the "coughing sensation" when you laugh tomoko but do you mean your actual tummy that's higher up (above your waistline) or lower down in the pelvic area?

      Thank you for quick reply Matron?

      I feel pressure in the pelvic area. It is the same area to have pressure when coughing.

      And Matron, thank you for encouraging me to take a long flight backing my country. I'm more relaxed and no home duties with my Mum.

      I'm so pleased you made the journey and had a lovely time. It's been some time since your surgery so I'm wondering why you're getting some pain when you do your pelvic floor exercises. Has that always been the case or is it something that's just happened? I'm hoping Stephanie will see your post and be able to help. Lifting anything really heavy with a prolapse will almost certainly make things worse and I would hope similar advice would be given xx

      Matron, sorry I'm making you confused. Englishis my 3rd language....

      My pain during pelvic floor exercises just happened today. I think it is stiches. I'm about 10th weeks post surgery.

      I'm still tired when I sit on the chair hours. I'm backing to work in 20 days. little worried.

      If English is your 3rd language you wouldn't have thought so. As you're only 10 weeks post surgery I would stop the exercises for a few days and see if things settle down. It could be that you have a suture ready to come away from your wound. However if it doesn't get any better or if you get any other symptoms such as a high temperature or more pain please see your doctor because it could be a slight infection. This surgery can leave you feeling very tired for weeks and I can remember at 10 weeks I felt the same. I only returned to work on a graduated return after 13 weeks. You've also been away so you will take longer to recover from your journey than usual. Try not to worry about returning to work, gradually build your strength up again with gentle exercise and see how you feel in 2 weeks. I just should add that if your pain is the start of an infection then you could feel more tired than before xx

      Yes, I think the suture is coming out. I was told by doctor that there is nothing I can do at this stage. Is it correct?

      I don't think it is infection but I'll see doctor if I need. Thank you.

      Your doctor is right you just have to let the stitch come out when it's ready and it's not a bad thing that it's still there because it's nicely knitting together the wound. I'm sure you haven't got an infection but I'm always cautious when giving advice and obviously you know you're own body. Keep taking things easy and rest as soon as you're tired, don't push yourself even at this stage. xx

    Hallo!     I also had a real fit of laughing the other week....and felt that same pressure (like coughing) and was quite worried.    A real belly laugh (not just a little giggle) seems to have a feeling of pushing down and I hope it can't cause a re prolapse.  I would loathe to go round with a poker face for the rest of my life LOL 😂
