Would like to know your recovery journey post biopsy. I know it may not sound like a lot but my recovery journey has been a very rocky one. I am not sure if I had push myself too hard or is this the correct trajectory for the recovery post biopsy.
I had a smooth journey out of the hospital after the biopsy, meaning to say that the biopsy itself wasn't complicated and the hospital discharged me after one night stay and observation.
I do realise that I am unable to lift up my left leg without causing pain on the lower left abdomen. It has been 5 days post biopsy and I do still feel pain around the left lower abdomen. Is that normal?
To make things a little complicated, on the night of day 3 post biopsy, I had an incident at home where I was bending down on the floor because my chips fell on the floor, what a way to save my chips yeah, and as I stood up, I hit my right hip on the table edge. So bad that it bruised black and blue till today.
As the doctors advised me not to exercise or do any strenuous activity, I have decided to atleast clock in 10,000 steps daily on my tracker to ensure I stay active. I managed to walk 10,000 steps on day 2 and 3 post biopsy. So, I tried to clock in the steps on day 4 post biopsy, post fall, I became so tired and felt fatigue. I went to IKEA and if you may know, IKEA is huge and a long maze. I got very light-headed and quickly got home. As I reached home and measure my blood pressure, it was 87/37, which is pretty low.
Is it normal that you shouldn't be too hard on yourself post biopsy? And does the soreness and pain in the abdomen persist for this long? How long after biopsy do you guys not feel anymore pain? or able to walk and lift your legs normally?
I am very concerned as on day 5 post biopsy, I feel very tired and experience low bp. My bp usually stands at the normal 120/80.
Please share your experiences. Thank you for reading thus far.
