Reply To: Had my surgery done finally – Shouldice
I just read Alan’s thread about his surgery with Dr. Kang. Very similar positional-dependent pain symptoms after surgery to what I experienced at Shouldice.
One difference in the experience is that Dr. Kang told Alan that it’s normal, while my surgeon thought it wasn’t, and that something bad happened.
Threads like these are very important because surgeons don’t provide enough information about the true range of “normal” symptoms that can be experienced after surgery, and what helps with those symptoms. Maybe they don’t want to scare people, or maybe they don’t even know.
I’ll keep posting about how this develops, and I hope Alan does as well. A natural question is what the healing process looks like in such relatively bad cases of post-surgery pain, and whether (heaven forbid) chronic pain becomes an issue.
