Post Transplant - Core numbness and weakness
Hello. I’m 9 months post-liver transplant . Im challenged with a couple of physical things. First, the numbness in my abdomen area. Parts of the numb area are gradually regaining feeling, but I know to expect that some of the area will remain numb indefinitely so I’ll learn to accept that.
My biggest challenge is my core strength, stability, and flexibility,I realize it’s significant that they sliced my abdomen muscles to get to my liver, but 9 months later It still feels like I’m walking around with some 30 pound mass in my core, can lose my balance ( thsts greatly improving! , and it generally feels like my abdomen muscles are almost dead or inactive.
Is this normal? How long should the healing process take until I can walk around normally without being reminded that I had major surgery in my abdomen?
