hello all you fabulous ob/gyn nurses. I have a question. I had a laparascopy/hysteroscopy done on Thursday. I have three different sites with stitches (one umbilical and two abdominal). Small to be sure but still painful. Any advice? I have been on my feet quite a bit since Saturday although while home I tried to take frequent rest breaks. I am back at work today and although I have been in front of a computer with my feet up most of the day, I am still hurting. Mostly small twinges.
Should i be off my feet more or take a couple more days off? My follow up is Friday so until then I am on my own. Just me and my handy little bottle of pain pills although I try not to take them unless absolutely necessary. Yesterday is the first time I took two in one day. (vicodin). Otherwise, strictly ibuprofen (dr order--800mg.)
That being said, any advice? I'd love to hear from you experienced folks. By the way, the surgery was for occluded fallopian tubes. Doc said everything looks great so we are looking forward to the baby making (when I am released for the fun! LOL)
time for me to go home and :zzzzz
