Hi, I was just wondering if there was anyone out there who is 3 weeks post-op and still having pain and discomfort? I had mine done on 2/10 and did so well the first week. I was taking pain meds of course, but was getting around rather well. The second week got a little harder after I stopped taking the narcotics, and this 3rd week is still hard. I feel like I'm getting nerve pains on & off in different places on my abdomen. Almost like stinging pains; like my skin is being pulled. Has anyone felt this? I know that the healing from the surgery is not overnight and it takes a while, so I was prepared to be uncomfortable for a while. I am still glad that I did it -- my stomach looks so much better than before [having had 7 lb. twins ea. 3 years ago].
Just wanted to see if anyone else out there was having this kind of discomfort at nearly 3 weeks post-op.
