I am a bit concerned about what I am experiencing after my surgery?
I underwent a laparoscopy 4 days ago. Was in theatre almost 2 hours and experienced very high pain levels post-op. I remained in Hospital overnight and was sent home the following day.
The pain was still a huge issue and we even had to phone to doctor to prescribe stronger pain relief.
I’ve been experiencing this constant high pain level along with nausea and feeling faint. However I did feel quite a bit better yesterday and even went on a short walk.
Unfortunately this was short lived and I have been well again.
Last night I woke up with severe pain in my incisions (particularly the belly button one) which has lasted all day. The pain is also around my general pelvic area and is so intense - the pain relief I am taking does not take it away and it only ever takes the edge off for a couple of hours. I have also had bad nausea and sickness and have struggled to walk around today without everything going black and me feeling like I’m going to pass out.
My wounds look fine so I don’t think there is an infection. The medication I am taking is paracetamol, naproxen and tramadol. I also have an anti sickness drug.
Is this normal or should I be concerned?
Thanks in advance
