Is it normal to still have a lot of pain in the surgical area two months post transplant? It's especially bad at night.

    unsure - my staples were a little itchy but after they where removed some slight discomfort/adjusting to living but little pain. You may have already but certainly follow up with your doctors. I hope you feel better ❤️‍🩹 🙂

    I agree with Veggie, no pain from surgery but from the staples even after the removal.

    If you're concerned I would ask your doctor. I had pain pretty bad pain for 3 months or so, though I'm not sure if it was from the surgery, the staples, trying to move again or laying in one position for so long.

    The only pain I experienced was back pain and it was rough but no incision pain at all once the drainage tubes came out.

    Biggest source of pain for me was due to the drainage tubes. Absolutely miserable. I couldn't sleep on a bed for months.

    I had severe back pain for a few months and pain in the abdomen/around scar when I coughed, sneezed or laughed.

    My nerve endings decided to reconnect about 7 years later when I was getting a zipper tattooed on the end of my scar. 😬
