Pains and twinges post-surgery

Hello! I'm hoping to get some advice please! I had my surgery almost five weeks ago. Up until last week, I felt like I was physically healing well; I haven't needed to take regular painkillers for about 3 weeks! However, I have returned to work this week and have found my tummy is quite painful (ach...

Re: When will it get easier?

Thanks ladies! Yes, I'm feeling physically better in myself this week - I've been out with my 3yo for a walk today which felt good as it was a little taste of normality once more. Today has also been the first day in two weeks I've barely had to rely on painkillers, which I'm taking as a small win! ...

Re: Does The Pain Ever Go Away?

Hi Godsangel - I'm so sorry to hear how you've been feeling, but in a way, your story is reassuring as I have been feeling very similar following the removal of my ectopic pregnancy on 13th October. I know it's still early days for me, but like you I find that I'm okay if I'm busy or distracted, but...

Re: When will it get easier?

Wow! I had surgery on Tuesday too, but Drs have only been signed off for 2 weeks! (I have to admit I'm a bit worried about that!) I am currently in agony and similarly struggling to do much, although I am trying to get up and do small walks around the house every so often - small wins, hey!? :wink:

Re: Embarrassed to tell people

Thanks for all your kind words, it really means a lot. I am finally home, and have managed to tell my boss and also a couple of close friends. I have told others I had emergency surgery for personal reasons, as it doesn't feel right to share such personal information right now. I am hoping this will...

Re: Ruptured Ectopic- emergency surgery

Hello! I'm so sorry to hear what you've been through - your experience sounds so horrific, but you have been so brave. My experience was completely the opposite - just some light bleeding for 12 days (old blood, light spotting), accompanied by fresher blood last Friday which is what made me speak to...

Embarrassed to tell people

Good morning everyone! I'm currently writing this from my hospital bed, after a very traumatic few days dealing with the removal of my ectopic pregnancy (6 weeks 5 days) on my own due to COVID restrictions. I am so thankful a place like this forum exists, as I have been reading all your lovely words...
