Hope you are all well and continuing to recover! I am now one year post op and despite set back at work with scar tissue repairs are holding strong. I can walk for up to 3 hours although still need a half hour break in middle, buy no lower back pelvic floor pain or dragging down feeling anymore.
Discovered that it's not so much how far or his long I walk but the speed of the pace I walk. If I walk to quickly I must be overstretching tissue at repair site; I don't usually realize at the time, it's when I sit down then get back up I get really agonising pain. I assume it's damaged ligaments that are stiffening up. Sometimes get tingling with slight pain along front line of pelvis (around upper hair line). If I persevere with moving around it slackens of again. So feel like I am finally getting there.
Swelling all gone and everything in place, really appreciate having it done again. Saw my GP yesterday she is referring me to physio for my neck and shoulder which is giving me problems due to repetitive strain at work so will no have to ask them to split my Monday shift between self scan and checkouts. Feel like a nuisance again but will have to rest my right arm. Also a bit apprehensive about it as I don't want to be left too long on my feet.
Doctor said to mention that consultant suggested I had back problems unrelated to pelvic floor repair to physio once I have appointment and mention about scar tissue too.
So consultant hadn't actually forwarded letter to my GP suggesting I had back problem and needed physio referal, so that bist was a complete waste of time, that's twice that consultant bust has been unsatisfactory. She missed the posterior prolapse at initial hospital referal and never informed my GP of her findings in second post ol visit.
Anyway now looking forward to physio, hopefully they will be able to help initially with my shoulder but also help shade some light on consultants diagnosis of back problem which I still don't agree with and don't think my GP thinks that either.
Looking back I am definitely getting much better, have felt a difference in just the past month. Getting normal feeling around outer lip area and feeling very comfortable.
Please take care and look after yourself, do not overdo things you have you whole life ahead of you and recovery is only really a short time in comparison. Get to know your own limitation's and stick within them as you don't want to have to go through this surgery unnecessarily.
For those still waiting on surgery I Hooe you get your date soon.
