    could it be muscular? everything was stretched pretty tight and might be spasming a bit?  is your diaphram is finally able to extend fully?

    prob like having wisdom teeth out - pain while everything around it shifts

      It feels muscular, I can cope with it but just uncomfortable It's not pain as such its more achy but it nothing like wisdom tooth pain as that is horrendous!!! I will prob check it out at drs but it feels more prominent at the mo I've not done much today it feels better when I lay on it or put cushions there x

      Hi, it’s probaly normal healing. I had the same op two years ago, and it was pulling in my side at times. It could also be adhesions. Just because you can only see three cuts, think of all the tunnelling that went on inside you, my cyst was wrapped around the ovary so I had the ovary and tube removed too. The surgeon said afterwards he had trouble finding it due to scar tissue.

      No, haven’t had any problems with that ever since. It’s hard to say how long it was, because I had prolapse surgery at the same time,and that was so painful it sort of overoad the other op. But it really didn’t bother me that much.
