Thanks for writing in.
It is good to know that you have started your normal life activities. The sooner you return to your routine after a surgery, the better it is for you.
There is no harm in carrying out your routine household work now. It is generally advised that one should not lift heavy weight ( >5 Kg) during the first 6 months & avoid strenuous exercise.
Ordinary activities, light sports, sitting down & getting up is not likely to harm you now.
Actually when healing occurs & a scar forms, it is not as elastic & stretchable as normal preoperative healthy tissues. So, whenever it is stretched it feels uncomfortable & abnormal. This feeling will decrease with time & you also will get used to it.
Sometimes, after surgery, mild adhesions form in between different organs in abdomen. These may also cause stretching pains related to different movements.
If the pain increases in severity & is associated with any other symptoms like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, urinary symptoms, vaginal discharge or any other symptom, you must visit your doctor for full evaluation & to rule out other causes of pain.
I hope I have addressed your concerns. I will be available for follow ups.
