I had a laparotomy (6 inch bikini line incision) to remove a 12cm dermoid cyst, right ovary and fallopian tube just over a month ago.
I am 33 years old and exercised regularly prior to the operation. Since discharge from the hospital I have had no follow up appointments and received no advice on the recovery process as the pre op was focused on laparoscopy (the surgeon was unable to perform this on the day due to the position of the cyst). I feel quite isolated and worried that I am doing too much to soon.
The last few days, I have gone for a short walk each day. While it is nice to get out I have found this tiring and painful, particularly by my hips, where I get a sharp, pulling pain if I walk to fast.
Did anyone else experience the same thing?
How long did it take you to get back to normal?
Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.
