Sneezing, Coughing, Laughing, Burping

All of these things fricken hurt!

I just sneezed for the first time since surgery and it felt like my port incision was going to split open

F*&^ING OUCH!

Has anyone felt this?

Yes and it was terrible! Try holding a pillow to your tummy...it helps, but not much sadly.

Like Grace said, try holding a pillow over it. It's called bracing, and it's to help keep the stitching intact. They really should have educated you about it :S they're meant to when you have surgery.

ohhh no they didn't tell me anything about that!
I try holding it but I have now come down with a cold and it sucks!
I'll try that though! Thanks guys!

I'm not sure if they're meant to with banding (I'm not really sure how they do it) but as a Nursing student they teach us to educate our patients about it when they have surgery.

They said something about me not having stitches but steri strips?
I have no idea. but any advice is good advice!
