5 days post- op...my back is killing me!!!
- Last updated: 4 years ago
seriously, my back hurts worse than my stomach! I cannot find a comfy position to sit in because if I sit too long my butt goes numb, any way i sit or lay my back hurts and if I stand up hunched over leaning on something...my back kills me! My stomach feels so tight....I think the swelling it setting in. I also need to eat better and drink more water. I have not been a very good patient since coming home :-( I am taking my 2 percocets every 3.5-4 hours as prescribed. Over all, the recovery isn't too bad. I had 2 c/s prior so I had a small idea what to expect. I am not handling the sitting around very well..I overdid it today. Husband not so nicely pointed this out....noted. Must take it easy *sigh* I could really use some words of encourage of just an 'i've been where you are, hang in there!" TIA!
