    Default Dull Aching pain on my right side

    Hey Sleevers,

    I hope you are all well. I just wanted some advice from anyone pre op about 1 1/2 - 2weeks.

    I felt very well (thank God) shortly after my surgery. I have 2 small kids and we are in the middle of moving and unfortunately I have not been resting. I came home and rested for a few days but then went back to normal life and cleaning, taking care of the kids, etc.

    I haven't lifted anything over 10lbs as per my doctor but I have been having a dull ache on my right side where one of my bigger incisions are. I am thinking it is just the healing process but now I am thinking maybe I should slow down.

    If anyone has any experience with this or has any advice to give all suggestions are welcome.

    Thank you

    Thanks Sara I guess I am just paranoid. I want everything to be okay like everyone else on here. It helps to hear we are not alone in this. Thanks

    Yeah we are only 5 days apart I have to be honest, being on liquids this long is driving me crazy...I am not always hungry which is a GREAT thing but it does bother me that I cannot eat food. I guess it's my head..I don't know. I a few sips of soup tonight and a few little bites of sweet potato. I start mushies on wednesday and I hope once I do that I will feel more "normal" lol...I am down 16lbs already so I am happy about that.

    A slow, dull ache is actually normal, according to my experiences. I had a slow ache for almost 3 weeks ... If it should become sharp or unmanageable, I would advise getting it looked at.

    Congrats to both of you!
