Can anyone tell me what they did to cope with pain?

I had surgery 11 days ago and was doing very well,but a few nights ago my 13 lb.dog jumped on my lower left side.She did it again a couple of nights later. Now I haveto take more pain pills than before the dog attacks, and I have real pain. I'm sitting very quietly and hoping I will be back to where I was soon. I've talked to my doctor's office twice about this, but I'm wondering if you have any other suggestions for me. Has anyone else had a problem similar to this?

Thanks for replying to me. I will try the warm pack. I also thought about ice, but I will try the warm first. Last night I took two pain pills. Four hours later I took one more to try to get the pain under controll. It's hard to accept this set back because I was doing great.

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post and I'm sorry you're in so much pain. 

If there is someone else at home, have them keep the dog off you. A 13 pound dog can cause a lot of pain if they suddenly jump on you. When you are resting, it's better if he/she is in another room. Then you can ensure this doesn't happen again.

If the dog hasn't caused an injury then time will help heal and certainly ease the pain. 

A warm pack will also help to ease the discomfort. 

We hope you feel better soon,
