Reply To: "tightness "in abdomen

I refer to that band of tightness as my boa constrictor. When I first got GBS, it was truly terrible. Everytime I tried to take a breath in, the band would tighten.

I’m a year and a half into recovery, halfway there and my boa constrictor still feels tight but not nearly as bad as it was. If I engage in physical exertion, I notice it more and huff and puff. Most of the time though, I only feel that it’s still slightly there, doesn’t hurt or squeeze badly anymore (thankfully!).

Can’t speak for anyone else but if my experience is typical, it will get tons better over time.

I’m so sorry to hear that your hubby is having to go through it again! Once is nasty enough. All the best to him!
