I agree with C2, if this was your first surgery, I think your body is a little shell-shocked. I had an emergency resection in 2002. They went in thinking they were going to do it laproscopically, but I had so much adhesions and scar tissue they had to
open me all the way up. I can tell you I was a little traumatized and shook up, as I did not expect that kind of pain. Be gentle with yourself. I am sure the Pred is really adding to it, it can also slow down your healing. I hope you feel better soon. Hugs!
