Since I am going to whine a bit, I thought I would offer some cheese and crackers to go along with it. I read all of the amazing recoveries, marathons, mountain climbing and ocean swimming going on and I need to know if there are others lurking in the shadows that are still not the same as pr-surgery?
It's been over a year now and I still have so much abdominal pain that it still hurts to turn over and even get up. I still cannot press anything up against my abdomen. It still hurts when I eat and drink due to the hematoma located near my spleen and stomach. Not to mention the nerve pain. I do not take pain meds for any of this but the quality of life certainly isn't the same. Deep breathing still hurts. I've had previous surgeries and recovered fully and quickly. Am I the only one? Offers you some cheese...
