RE: 3 wks post-Meyers surgery pain/bruising questions
Yet another question from tiff to anyone who has had the AP surgery -
I am at week 3 today and the last couple days I have felt like my abs are moving around alot - almost like they are dettached and floating around - but I don't have pain. I know this sounds nuts! Did anyone else experience that? Meyers said it is probably fluid. It makes me really nervous and I don't want to work out in case I am doing damage.

CONGRATS to Albert!! I wish you contiued success - you have been an invaluable source of encouragement and advice!!

Congrats also to HP - and I am glad to know that you are doing the same rehab I am b/c I was told by my PT the other day to slow way down until the tissue is healed. But - I have not even seen him yet and won't until week 4 so I wasn't sure what to do. I am going to stick w Meyers rehab for now. I am able to do everything at the 3 week marker accept for sprinting - jogging slowly is all I can handle - but I was not a runner beforeheand.

Also - to anyone getting surgery w/ Meyers-
although I complained that his rehab was not thorough enough, I do think Albert is right in that it is not a surgeon's job to rehab us. BUT- Meyers has been incredibly generous w/ his time and has responded to all of my many texts to him. He is very willing to help you thru the process of healing. I hope someday he gets a PT to work w/ him the way the massage therapist does - it is really helpful to know that the person you are putting your faith in understands the complexity of this injury.
