I had surgery about a month ago, a laparoscopy to fix some things & look for cancer, at the same time I had a TOT. After the TOT I had alot of complications, had to have a foley cath, for several days and had an infection after all the caths. Anyway, right after surgery I had alot of pain up the inside of my legs. I knew to expect some tenderness, but geez, this is ridiculous. I've been told not to sneeze, vomit,cough, or laugh b/c it can put a strain on my sling. I've had a few setbacks with vomiting hurting my sling. I just wondered if any of you have gone thru this when does this end? I guess mine is a little longer, b/c 3 days post-op I had to have the sling moved ( in his office w/ no pain stuff wasn't fun) so I started over, but this is driving me crazy. I have been working on & off and its gotten worse the more I'm on my feet all day, hope this isn't a sign of things to come, I go back to the classroom in one week to set up & get kids in 2 weeks. I won't be able to cope if I can't teach, it is my life. Any suggestions? Going to call for a rescue lavage on monday.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
