Hi everyone, well last night was the first time I actually went out in about 2 weeks. I went to the grocery store with hubby. With all that walking my stomach swelled up and was very sore . The pain meds are helping some so thats good. My back,hips and knees are acting up cause rain is moving in for the weekend. Im 4 weeks post op now so hopefully in another week or 2 the surgery pain will be feeling better. I talked to a friend of mine that had the same surgery she told me it was 6 weeks before she felt somewhat normal . I hope everyone has a lpd.
