I am about 10 weeks post op NF. Yesterday I picked up some furniture from a shop ( which they loaded in my truck for me). On the way home the furniture was shifting in the bed of the truck. I climbed up in the back of the truck, shifted the furniture and retied the ropes. Last night I woke up in severe pain and I noticed some small bumpy swelling and real tenderness in the center of my abdomen. I had an open procedure, so I have the large incision, the tenderness is in the middle of the incision.
I had been feeling great. I have returned to my water aerobics class and was probably overconfident in my strength and ability. I am worried that I have torn a stitch in the wrap or messed up something internally. I have felt terrible all day and I am just laying low. Oh yeah, I did try to go to water aerobics this morning, I had to leave, it was too painful.
What do I need to watch for? Should I be concerned?
