hi all. I had a laparotomy nearly 2 weeks ago to remove my tubes which were severely swollen and removal of endo. The op went well and I have been told all went to plan after op but wont speak to doctor properly until my check up in 6 weeks time. I was originally upset knowing my tubes needed removing but my doctor believed these were causing the majority of pain along with the adhesions sticking them to ovary and bowel which I believe have been cut away too. I was hopefull this would be true and was glad to get the op sorted. I had 2 beautiful dogs that are my babies and have helped me deal with it all. so the week before my op my oldest dog jimmy developed epilepsy and was put on tablets to control it. although he had a few more fits blood tests showed that for a dog nearly 12 he was quite healthy so believed that it could be caused by a brain tumour as he had several lumps but otherwise well. so I was worried but he was fine while I was in hospital and having them lay on my bed with me while I recovered has been lovely, however on Tuesday jimmy had several fits which led to being in a constant fit and sadly after many hours he went to sleep. as you can imagine when you don't have kids these were my babies and has left me heartbroken.
so during the fits I forgot about myself and tried to help calm him and sat on the floor with him knowing I shouldn't be jumping up and down and had to pull my other dog away who is very heavy and felt like I pulled every muscle in my tummy. by the time the vet arrived I was in agony but couldn't rest until he had gone.
so I have taken the tramadol that ive been on since the op which has helped but this morning woke to what felt like an electric shooting pain running from the side of my groin up through where my ovary would be which is where I had pain initially after op but not since leaving hospital. if I move my leg or stand on that leg it gets worse but if im laying in bed not moving it aches but no shooting pains till I move .
so I know im not ment to be lifting, pulling, pushing anything heavy for at least 6 weeks so does anyone know what ive done should I be worried or just keep in bed till it eases??? my other dog is getting lots of cuddles but seems very sad looking for his brother.they have been there for me on the worst days and for that im glad he was in my life but will be missed so much. xx
