Hi, like you I was still taking parecetomal about 8 weeks after but I think I was trying to push myself too much and I was worn out. I went on holiday after 9 weeks and was really worried about it, but once there I felt more normal as no-one knew what I had had done and I relaxed and things felt much easiter, I still got so tired walking about and being worn out and although my scar wasnt huring as I had diep and tram I could feel a bit tug behind belly button when I moved about and it ached a lot. Have you tried swimming, I was so surpised at the pain and tightness when I first tried it but since then I done a little on holiday and found that the days I didnt do it I felt much tighter and uncomfie.
I still havent lifted anything really heavy but did do more on hokliday than what I would do here - i even pulled my suitcase but sort of supported my tummy, I never lifted it though as I am really nervous about hernias as I had a mesh cage put it. I have a definate bulge from under chest to under belly button and this is where I ache and feel uncomife but had a little weight gain too.
Sorry if I have waffled. Also are you still wearing a bra and knickers 24/7 I am. My bra I add an extender but still sleep in it and wear really baggy full knickers and when I dont I feel a bit unsupported. I even slept on my side once on hols and I had double diep/tram.
Hope you pick up soon, Im now almost 12 weeks post and feel so much better than I did at 8 week xxx
