Abdominal Hernia Support in india
The First Day After Hernia Surgery in india
I was brought home and spent the next few days on the couch. I preferred to sit at an incline, with a pillow and the arm rest of the couch for support. Sitting straight up was out of the question. I was given Vicodin and the pain was intense when the pain medication started to wear off. A sneeze or slight cough caused tears in my eyes. My entire abdomen ached. I did my best to be constantly medicated for the next few days.
The Second Day After Hernia Surgery in india
Going to sleep was uncomfortable. I chose to sleep on the couch because getting up from a laying position seemed impossible. Trying to move in the night was a huge ordeal to get comfortable. When I woke from sleep from the night the medication had completely worn off and any sort of movement caused intense pain.
The Next Few Days After Hernia Surgery in india
The entire first week I spent the majority of my time on the couch. Still sitting at an angle against the armrest and I only got up when I absolutely needed to. The constant use of pain medication was causing me to become constipated. Trying to move my bowels was an effort in itself. I had dealt with 10 days of not have a bowel movement before when I had my daughter and was terrified of having to go through that again. I forced myself to move my bowels through moving my body while on the toilet and trying to only slightly use my abdominal muscles.
The Second Week After Hernia Surgery in india
I was up and moving around now. Still staying home almost the entire time and not do any driving if I needed to go somewhere. I did not lift anything more then 10 pounds. I had increased the amount of time between Vicodin and lowered the amount I was taking, but I was still taking some and always before bed and upon waking.
the Fourth Week After Hernia Repair Surgery in india
Except for a few minor uncomfortable feelings I barely noticed anything near my repaired hernia when I was sitting or standing. I was functioning as normal, still holding my stomach occasionally as I walked. It wasn’t painful, just bothersome.
The Fifth and Sixth Week After Hernia Repair Surgery in india
I started feeling pain again. Sharp needles occasionally where my hernia was. They became strong to the point that the area seemed to feel constantly sore. I was afraid that my hernia repair had not worked. I saw my surgeon and she insisted that it was pain caused by scar tissue forming. It went away after awhile.
