I had my 13cm cyst taken out on July 20th.. as far as I know, everything had come out okay. The OB/GYN said that it was bigger then she initially thought, but was able to suck it through the tube. (Laparscopically). I actually felt better waking up from the surgery, then I do now. Then again... they were also feeding me Percocets, so maybe I was just out of it. They said I would be able to go back to work that following Monday, 3 days later... yeah, not happening. I couldn't bend, nothing. My stomach muscles felt as though they were being ripped out of me. So, on Wednesday, 5 days post surgery, I called my ob/gyn because the pain is getting worse. I can bend better, but if I cough or sneeze, I have to cringe and think of better things to keep from crying. She tells me, "Its the carbon dioxide gas." and I say, "Doesn't that usually just take 1 to 3 days?" and she asks me about shoulder pain.. which I actually never got. THen she just says, "Well, you have a post op appointment on July 31st, hang in there." and hangs up the phone. I am in tears. I am in pain. My stomach is so tender to the touch. It is this awful burning pain like on the outside and it feels as though my stomach muscles are tearing if I move just right. What can I do to make it subside?? I have always had a very high pain tolerance and this is almost making me depressed. Where did the burning come from?? Its between like two of the incisions. I am at the end of my rope trying to figure out what to do it for it. Please, any suggestions? Thank you.
