Thanks for the tip on the castor oil - I'm going to definitely try that because the stiffness is annoying. I hurt my back SNEEZING a couple nights ago and now it sent me a few steps back in my recovery. Ridiculous!
I have a large lump/swelling on the side of my incision area too. I'm assuming it's just my muscle that swelled back up after the sneezing incident... oh well, they did say the recovery would be like a rollercoaster, but I still will be mentioning this to my doctor when I see her in a few weeks if it's not getting better.
