billyboy11-have you let your Dr or stoma nurse know? where is the pain? At the stoma or incision? How long have you been back to work? Do you do physical work or work at a desk? There are a lot of things that can cause pain, but it should be subsiding, not getting worse, at your stage. Definately check with your doctor...
HisWill-if you are only 10 days out, I wouldn't do chores around the house, yet...I know it feels silly to sit around the house, but your body still has to heal. Didn't your doctor give a list of things you shouldn't do for a specific amount of time? You probably should lift more than 15-20 pounds for a few more weeks. As far as pain meds go, if it is from your surgery (what level of pain is it on a scale of 1-10), your surgeon that did it should refill, if you still have pain.
I hope you both find help with your pain soon,
