For the past several weeks, I have experienced slowly increasing pain below my surgery site. This started approximately 2 weeks after my last appointment when my doctor had me switch to a smaller soft corset brace.
I talked to the nurse and it appears to be muscle spasms that are partially due to wearing the new, less restrictive brace, but also because the timing coincides with a huge decrease in swelling.
I was doing really well, but now I have cut back on my exercise. If that doesn't help enough I may have to use some muscle relaxants as well. I'm taking this in stride - it is a huge annoyance, but I'm sure it is just part of the healing process. Hopefully it will subside soon.
