Doctor:was she mobilized very shortly after the surgery?
User:i m sorry i didnt understand
Doctor:Did they make her walk immediately after the surgery or was she allowed to rest a few days?
User:she was allowed to take rest
Doctor:ok. good
Doctor:the best thing that can be done at this point is to get her a lubar support belt
Doctor:you can get those in any surgery store
Doctor:She can use that for a few weeks and if she is feeling better take it off
Doctor:that support belt will allow the muscles in that region to heal and that should solve the problem
User:anything else can be done to reduce the pain
Doctor:If not then she needs to get back to the doctor and they need to investigate further
Doctor:Over the counter pain medications like Tolpa-D and Imol are good for this kind of pain
User:should i take her to gyano aur some other doctor
