Wind pain

I recently had open surgery (nearly 3 weeks ago now) and had a 10cm cyst and my right ovary removed. They wind pain after was horrible, which has now past thank god. Although every time I eat I am in pain still (this is what I had before my op). I can't eat a lot and afterwards I am in pain. I get the popping in my stomach and pains in my back. And to top it all when I move too much I have shooting pain in my back down to my bum. I am underweight as it is and can't afford to loss anymore weight (I have lost half a stone already)

Not sure what to do or who to turn to. Don't think GP will help as they are very unhelpful and not sure who to ask at the hospital. I haven't had my follow up appointment yet. I feel like I am never going to feel better again.

I have to get better as I have been off work for 2 and half months now and because I have only been in my job for the past 3 years I only got sick pay for 5 weeks and am now only getting SSP which I don't know how I am going to survive on!

I should be in bed sleeping right now, but my partner is snoring, and the pain is so uncomfortable I can't sleep. I just want to cry all the time.

    I know the feeling, i had open surgery for my endo this year in May

    it did take me quite some time before i went back to work, the gp signed me off for 8 weeks. you can drink peppermint tea for the wind, i know its painful. i am underweight and also lost a stone, it is best if u eat small meals for now and try and rest even if you canr sleep. i thought the bloating would never go away- it does eventually- hang in there.x
