Thanks for writing in.
1. Was the TAH surgery done under General anaesthesia
2. For all 3-4 days stay in hospital did your wife sit or stand or she was just lying on the bed?
Most probably it seems to be spinal headache caused by spinal anaesthesia
. In home she might have started walking and sitting for prolonged periods
. If that is the case, then nothing to worry.
Ask her not to sit or stand except for food and toilet purposes. She can take analgesics (aspirin
would be better), drink lot of water /juices and keep herself hydrated well till she recovers from the pain. The spinal headache might take time to settle down say a week or 10 days.
She can definitely turn to the sides in the bed. Elevation of foot end of the bed by 1-2 bricks or keeping her legs over 2 pillows might help her recover soon.
Get well soon,
