Had 4 surgeries Nov. 12, '09 Am 9 wks post op & recovering slowly! What is recovery time for someone going through this many surgeries? Still not able to go all day without burning & stinging across belly...above by-lateral incision site! Healed outside, but very sore to touch! Gallbladder incisions healed, but still sore? Like been punched in the gut @ X's! Belly button site feels like being pushed outwards? Bladder suspension has been an ordeal. Took an infection back before I came home from hosp. on Nov. 15th, but didn't know it? Was in sever pain all thru Thanksgiving till Dec. 11th. Urologist decided I was having bladder spasiums & an uretheal infection caused from the cathider...which I came home with or started growing? My pain meds. had stopped working early on!!! Dec. 11th., was given an anti-botic & an antigelsic & have been on both ever since. Makes pee bright orange & is the only time I am "pain free" for a few hours till it wears off. Been Dec. 11th till now, Jan. 24th.! Can't get off the little red pill but finished last antibiotic!!!
So tired of hurting & feeling bad! Still not lifting ANYTHING! Can't stand or sit upright for any length of time unless a very soft. Have to lay flat several times a day & REST!!! Doing very light HS work, nothing heavy!!!
Have been walking since week 3 & am up to 1 1/2 to 2 miles a day weather permitting....with great effort!!!!
When should I stop hurting & be in pain from all of this? Am getting very frustrated...but I do know I am better from going thru it all! The bladder has kickked my butt!!! LOL
How long should I continue to feel bad & have body pains?
What limits should I still put on myself and restrictions, if any?
Thanks to all who advice....
