Five weeks and two days post op (49 years old) and I have been really good about keeping my feet up, not doing too much etc... But I am only five days away from the six week mark so I thought a nice outing with my daughter would be good for both of us. (She has been so good about staying with me and keeping me company but at 21 years old I know she has been bored out of her mind!) We went furniture and home accessory shopping [for my upcoming remarriage PinkLady. ] In any case, I would guess that spread throughout the day with eating and driving breaks mixed in, I was on my feet for a total of five hours. I felt okay until toward the end of the evening when I began to feel a bit of heaviness but not too bad. Fast forward a couple of hours after getting home...I first started to have the oddest feeling in lower abdomen...almost a cross between a tickle and an ache, very uncomfortable! Then I developed the most awful ache vaginally and felt like my insides were going to fall out. I literally went to bed applying pressure in attempt to make that feeling subside. I'm (nearly) 6 weeks in, shouldn't I have been able to handle an outing like that? It wasn't five hours straight, the breaks were mixed in. I'm feeling so discouraged right now. I'm supposed to start back to work next week.
