Just the muscle cut but I have lots of swelling and more pain than expected - although I'm taking a very low dose of painkiller. I think it's a bit of an atypical situation, so don't be put off the LIS.

I will be thinking of you this coming week, it must be a very tough time. Here if you ever need a chat. The 27th will be here before you know it hon!

Oh I'm sorry hon, my dad has always been there for me and I can't imagine how tough it would be to be in your shoes. Praying for you.

I'm on 5mg of morphine every 4 hours. But they had to give me much much more than that post op. Since I already had the morphine at home the surgeon didn't write a new prescription or say how much I should be taking, and normally 15-30mg every 4 hours is prescribed for healthy adults...a bit confusing but will sort it out tomorrow with a call to the surgeon.

Oh and I haven't had the first bm - I can't even pass gas now I'm too sore and swollen. Hoping the bm won't come until the swelling is down because it will definitely be difficult.

I have stitches. Honestly I wouldn't worry. I think either my surgeon didn't do a great job or I have a thrombosed hem or something. As I said, my case is clearly not the usual.
