  • I have this too. I reckon (as does my surgeon) that it's core muscles compensating for the back ones that don't work because they have been sliced open. Mine throb especially at night. Funnily enough I have ended up taking stronger pain meds at night to sleep through this pain than the post op pain. I use hot water bottles and have taken the odd valium to help too.

    I also had (a slight) wound infection so was banned from exercise in my early recovery days. Don't know if that has anything to do with it?

    I am over 9 weeks post op now and am still suffering with the throbbing lower stomach!
  • thanks for the reply nel sounds about right
