Abdominal Nerve damage

Evening all

Just writing to see if anyone has experienced anything similar to myself.

I'm 7 weeks post op from RH and finally feel like im gettin control of my body again.  The one recurrent problem im having and im going to try my best to explain, is what feels like nerve pain.

So i wake up fine if only a little stiff, but as the day goes on from my belly button down I begin to feel as though when clothes or garments touch my skin its like there sandpaper. It makes me so irritable by the evening I walk around holding my nightie off my skin.

I've spoken to CNS and she thinks it is just nerves binding back and all the bruising going down but interested to know if anyone else has faced this.

Hope everyone is as well as can be

I'm pleased to hear you are feeling in control and getting through this. 

I too have felt a strange feeling. Like my waistband and top are like sandpaper on my skin. It doesn't last for long. But it is a very odd feeling. I just thought it was the radio but we have had different treatments.

After my trachelectomy I felt like that too where my scar was or near my lower abdomen. Even now 4 years on I can't wear certain pairs of jeans as they seem to chaffe the area. Not sure if that helps but you are not alone. It definitely got better but I do find myself feeling more comfortable in higher waisted trousers now.
