Hi All,well the dr thinks I just bruised myself and pulled some muscle in my back no more damage . He prescribed me Flexeril to take up to 3 times a day for 10 days . I am still on Ultracet for pain. I was kind of scared when I fell but no damage . I have a post op question about my gb surgery all who is familiar and had the lap procedure for that. I appreciate any advice. Mostly all the surgery pain is settling down but I still have the muscle pain in my stomach where I had the surgery. Is this normal for 7 weeks later?. The surgeon dismissed me on April 20th so I cant ask him . I go back to my pcp on July 29th . I feel the muscle pain in my stomach every night and especially if I do alot of walking. The flexeril should help that also a long with my back spasms right? I hope everyone has a lpd. My hubby is taking me out to the movies for my B-day . I certainly hope the flexeril helps me relax so I can sit that long . Dont worry Im not driving. Thanks everyone for their support. ((((((hugs)))
