Oh no one warned me.
I wish I knew.
That’s sneezing would be so burning painful after surgery too.
It started with a sniffle, grew to full on sneeze.
The pain shot through my abdomen and had me on my knees.
Weeks later it’s still burning.
It really hurts to move.
Six to eight weeks recovery seems silly for the flu.
But it’s not the flu that’s got me, it was just a sneeze.
It tore some stitches inside, I think next time I’ll ask for glue.
So please look after yourself after surgery and watch out for the sniffles! It’s not fun feeling well but being unable to move. If you feel a sneeze or cough coming, hold something against your stomach, keep that pressure there till it passes and stay fit and healthy. Remember to seek professional advice if you feel unwell.
