Kicked in the back

My 2-year old kicked me square in the back, right near my incision, during a tantrum today. I'm in terrible pain now. I took an oxycodone, muscle relaxant and motrin. I have my 2-week postop visit tomorrow. Should I be concerned? I nearly vomited when it happened...it brought tears to my eyes.


  • Hey.......so sorry to hear that. I would just tell the doctor what happened, hopefully nothing else happened. I will say that I had a few minor "blips" during previous recoveries and nothing came of it, but you never know. Hope youre feeling better!


    Oh wow, hon. I can imagine that you probably saw stars. Gives me the shudders just to imagine that! ACK!

    Yeah, I agree with Charlie...make sure to tell the doc tomorrow. Keep an eye on things for sure... maybe try an ice pack for a bit, see if that helps.

    I would think that if the pain suddenly gets super severe or you feel like something is off, to go to the ER.

    Keep us posted and watch out for that youngin!
  • Thanks guys! Doing better today. Finding that the pain starts out pretty mild early in the day, but by afternoon/evening, it definitely gets worse. Still, everyday is getting easier and easier. I'd imagine in a few weeks I'll feel as good as new!
  • Ouch! Sounds painful!

    I find the same thing..... My pain is ok in the morning, but in the late afternoon and evening, the muscle spasms and pain start up! So I still take pain meds and muscle relaxers at night!

    Good luck on your 2 week. Let us know what the doc says!
