Not all fibro

I came out of hospital on Friday after having an inguanal mesh hernia repair as a day patient. Not sure if this has set my fibro off worse or what but, I have never been in so much pain! The operation site is so sore and I'm bruised passed my belly button and down my leg! I had one done 10 years ago and it wasn't like this at all! I can hardly walk, having trouble sitting up, lying down or even just moving! Reading the leaflet I was given I should be able to walk properly now, I wished!! Let's hope it feels a bit better tomorrow.

  • Since it was 10 years ago , you have to remember your body is aging and will not come back from surgery as fast .

  • Thank you all, I might just ring my g p and ask for some advise. Redhots7 you trying to say I'm old! Lol mind I do forget I'm getting older my big 60 in January xx

  • My wife had the same operation a few months ago and the effects were far worse than the first operation. According to the Consultant this was to be expected. Thank Heavens she does not have Fibro or it would be even worse.

    I hope that your recovery goes well and that the pain becomes more 'liveable' as time progresses.

  • Thank you, I seem to be moaning every day just now! The pain can become unbearable sometimes. Moan over
