I just found out today that my favorite kind of laughter, the ugly faced full bellied head tossed back kind, hurts my lower back like a bee-yotch!!!!! :''(

I made a silly mistake and typed yay! when I should have been expressing sympathy for someone and it made me laugh. Hard. OMG it hurt my lower back, especially on the left. That was 10 minutes ago and I am still feeling it down my left leg. Sheesh!

Pain be d@mned! I ain't gonna give up that kinda laughter for anything in the world!


One Love,

Stephanie

  • But keep up the laughter as much as possible. :D I know what you mean though. Yesterday I took my allergy nasal spray and it made me sneeze really hard. Boy did I feel it in my back! (Ouch!)
  • Stephanie,

    I know exactly what you are talking about. Even at 19 weeks post-op, hard laughing still causes a minor bit of pain. You have the right outlook though, laugh anyway! :)))

    The worst is what anjuan mentioned: sneezing. Most of the time, sneezing still really hurts, and it takes 10-15 minutes for that pain to dissipate.

  • Really, I don't! It is extreme agony. So far, I have managed not to sneeze once since surgery so, a week a month and 5 days. I almost sneezed last week, it was a half one. But I pinched my nose. :P

    I am able to use my neti pot again so that should help me going forward to avoid the sneezes.

    Laughter though, laughter is worth it. B)

    One Love,

    Stephanie
  • After 2 months and 3 weeks I have still managed not to sneeze! I pinch my nose until it passes, lol. I just don't want to deal with the pain. Wish me luck for no sneezes. :)

    One Love,

    Stephanie
  • Congrats, on not sneezing. I have managed a pretty good system where I press against a wall and let out a tiny sneeze. I sure wish I could really let one go,lol.
