Back home from the hospital and in pain



Recommended Posts

I’m not sure if it’s normal but some of my incisions are hurting like crazy that I can’t even sit on the toilet. Is this normal? I’m having pain medications like Tylenol and the prescription pain medicine only if needed. Is this normal? I got back from the hospital today so I’m only 2nd post op. When does these incision pains go away?

Thank you all.

The incisions will hurt. You've basically been stabbed multiple times (as one of my surgeons told me, which put the pain into perspective!). It took mine a good week to settle down. It's a painful surgery.

I’m so sorry your incisions hurt . My surgery was the 29th and the gas pain is not subsiding no matter how much I walk

If they gave you narcotic pain meds this is the time to use them. I took my liquid pain meds the first week and it made a huge difference. By week two I didn’t need it anymore and had no real discomfort. Don’t hesitate to use prescribed meds if needed.

It took a week for all but 1 of my incisions to stop hurting. It took another week for my biggest one (the one they removed my stomach from) to stop. And then it was another week before the abdominal muscle under that incision to stop hurting. I took my Oxy pain meds for the first week. After that, just Tylenol, except for when I bumped my incision into the corner of our island. I was in agony, so I took it for another 2 days after that lol But that first week? Oh yeah, pain meds all the way. You have them, that's what they're for, use em and give yourself some relief.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
