I had my RnY surgery about a week ago from today, last night I was laying in bed and I was woken up by a random dry cough, now what worries me is being half asleep I didn’t support my tummy like I usually do and the pain was intense it was different it was like doing sit ups and stretching your body so you feel as if you pulled or strained a muscle but in this case my intestine. I don’t have pain on a regular and it only feels uncomfortable when I stretch or bend forward, the cough was pretty intense, like a shift in my body. I just wanted to know if any else has experienced this? Before I go crazy overthinking this more than I already have

yep, it hurts to cough. wait until you sneeze.

(so long as the pain goes away eventually, you are ok)

Im also one week and a day post surgery. Yes, i was taking my meds a couple days ago and it must have went down the wrong way, i had a coughing fit for about 10 mins and i was in agony! I had to take pain meds yesterday and today as it now is sore to bend or stretch. Pain today is better than yesterday tho.

Good luck!

Your abdominal wall is still healing from those incisions and what your feeling is likely the muscle layer, not the internal organs. Splinting those coughs are important to maintain the integrity of your abdominal wall so it heals properly and hernias don't form.

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I mean  grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.
