Post LIS wound pain

Postby Jase1 » 03 Oct 2018, 04:39

Hey everyone, I’m post lis surgery about 2months now and my fissure pain is gone but I still get wound pain on the right side from where they cut on the outside & inside. I’ve spoke to my surgeon and he thinks it’s healing nicely which is good news however the pain I get is not. He told me to return in 2 months time if I still have the pain. Meanwhile my gp has stopped my painkiller (tramadol) as they think I’m no longer in pain with the fissure and they want to put me on codien instead but you all know codien constipates you which is definitely not what I want. Has anyone else had the wound pain for awhile and did it eventually go ?

I am going through something very similar. Last 2 days pain at incision site, (right side). I was using lanolin for a few days and stopped thinking that’s it. Good 5 days sore 5 days that’s my route but I’m very active and have a strenuous job. 10 weeks post op. I read in here it’s 3 months minimum healing from others crs, I’m currently looking for a new crs because mine said it should be 2 weeks and doesn’t know why I still have burning and soreness, lol these guys. If it’s going to take up to a year, tell me, I can handle that. Don’t make me feel like I’m the odd one out. Good luck to you

Yeah that’s how I feel, I’m hoping Mine is healing but at the moment it feels like it’s not as I’m still getting pain. fingers crossed it’s a slow process and not another tear or the procedure hasn’t worked.
