I am having some difficulties after this surgery. I've never really noticed a problem with recovery and the ms but this time I"m sure they are connected somehow.
I have lost 90 lbs. (on my own) over the last 6 years. I really am quite happy with my body but my thighs have not gone down in size and the skin was sagging badly. This made it very uncomfortable putting on pants because my thighs were squeezed into them and they would get raw and painful.
Anyway, last Monday I had a thigh lift. My surgeon made an incision from groin down to about 2 inches above my knee on the inner thigh. I am very swollen, bruised and miserable. I go back to him on Tues.
I am very weak and fatigued. My constipation is worst than ever and to top it off I am numb in my croch area so it makes that issue terrible. I did not take my Avonex last week, I would have never made it with the side effects.
I am going to try the milk of magnesia today and pray it helps....
I am supposed to have the tests to see what is causing the constipation., but it will be after i heal.
