2 mnths after myomectomy & have sensitivity in area where removed, heavy lifting hurt stomach muscles then had acidity & pain in abdomen is it related?
Recovery: The healing process after surgery can be slow and varies for everyone. I think the sensitivity and the heavy lifting affecting abdominal muscles sounds appropriate for 2 months post-op.
