During the past week, my pain has both moved and has gotten very intense. It has been about 6.5 weeks since my abdominal surgery and I rarely used pain meds, and never an entire pill, this week I gave up and took several medications. It has been a real struggle. I feel like I am getting worse, not better. However, I was able to walk about 7 miles (not all at once) one day this week and I have started doing some simple exercises. Just wish it would go away now!
