Stepped on by small dog (Ouch!)



Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

My friend came over with his two little dogs last night. The 15 pounder was trying to lick me to death and she stepped on my stomach and now it really hurts NEAR the incision but not exactly on it. I'm three weeks out and the bandages and steri-strips have come off a while ago, and of course I was wearing a shirt but I'm just surprised at how much it hurts. I don't see any difference in the incision, and it doesn't feel hot to the touch or bruised or swollen. I took tylenol, but it didn't help.

I'd try to call my surgery center, but they never return my calls. Any suggestions? Should I be concerned?

I don't want to go so far as to say that you shouldn't be concerned, just chiming in with my experience that a dozen or so times, I was convinced I'd done something terrible (accidentally picking up something too heavy, bending over too much, twisting the wrong way, etc and then being really sore) and it always ended up OK.

It is times like these that try our souls.

Maybe getting the dogs some treats will help smooth over their trauma. If you handle things just so your relationship with your friend may not suffer over much, though the dogs may never forgive you.

You mention calling your surgical center. The dogs will likely appreciate other sources of treats and affection.

Remember, this is not about you. It's about the dogs.

Good luck,

Tek

I sneezed once and felt sore for hours.

(and I turned out ok, 😂)

I have a 15 pounds dog and their little paws can be like little pokers sometimes. I would imagine if it was just near the incision it should be fine. Sorry that you can’t just get guidance from your surgery center. My primary care doctor’s office is unresponsive like that and I am going to go to this one last annual appointment just so I can talk to him personally to let him know what is going on with his staff and then changing doctors (unless he convinces me otherwise but I doubt it).

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
