Good Morning. I am curious how many women here have gone back to fix lateral displacement/ bottoming out having a Capsullhaphory? I am almost 1 week out from my surgery and wondering what your healing time was like? Thanks!

I just had one pocket fixed, and omg worst being pain in my life! I am 10 days post op. The pain I guess Is a little better. Can't stand up for more than a few min beforee the burning starts. I have a high tolerance for pain meds so it really sucks. Right now I am on percocet 5ml and xanax, but only take a little of that during the day and mostly at night to sleep. I hate being on these meds but I have to ,the pain just sucks. How long were you ladies in pain for and needed pain meds? I just can't wait to be normal. I have 4 boys and this is really hard.

I'm 3 weeks out and have no more bruising. My scars are healing and I mainly have pain at night. When did you begin sleeping on your side again? I don't want to compromise the pocket so I'm trying to sleep on my back and I am getting so sore. If you are in pain switch to a compression sports bra it works wonders for pain!

I started sleeping on my side about 6 weeks out.

I had a capsullhaphory done before and it took about 1 month for me to feel completely back to normal. It was a pretty painful recovery for me.

I had my revision surgery 2 months ago. I m still having brusing on the left one because I left it untrated for a over a year. so the dr had to make a new pocket and clean out scar tissue. this is my second replacement. the first replacement took time to. I was sore for a couple of months. I now have memory gel. which is so much better

Hi there,

Here's another woman who recently underwent a capsulorrhaphy. Perhaps you could reach out to her? (If you type capsulorrhaphy into RS's search bar you'll find more as well).
