was your hysterectomy done open or lap? Is your wls going to be open or lap?
all I can say is, there is discomfort.......your insides are being rearranged (well you know what I mean.) There is no reason you should be in "pain" use the pain management your doc will give you. Yes, there will be discomfort, but it will not last forever.
After my initial surgery(s) I was home for about 10 days before going back in the hospital. I remember being uncomfortable, my hubby helped me up from the chair, and I didn't sleep in my bed for a couple of nights, but it was not unbearable.
This is easy for me to say, cause it's behind me........but a little discomfort short-term for being "given my life back" is a pretty good trade off in my book.
Keep posting your concerns, we'll get you through this.
