I'm now 3 weeks post op and generally feeling well in myself. I've been trying to do a litt,e gentle walking , and we've been out for a drive in the car, so don't feel like I've done too much, Last 3 days or so I've been experiencing a new, sharp, localised pain to on side of the wound, but only when I'm walking around. Sitting still preferably with a cup of tea is fine. The pain is very uncomfortable and is putting me off moving much. I called my CNS who just said I should expect some pain, and take the strong painkillers for another week. My GP doesn't know anything about my type of op or cancer. I had considered going to my local A&E but I wouldn't want them messing with anything as I'm under the Christie, but not due back there for another 10 days.
Has anyone else experienced post op pain like this? Thank you
