I'm now 10.5 weeks post op from various repairs including anterior, posterior, perineum, bladder sling, and suturing uterus...blah, blah blah...
I was cleared by surgeon to resume all activity at 8 weeks even though I told him I was unable to even take a walk without feeling pressure. This pressure feels just like what I used to feel if I didn't have a pessary inside. However, it is much worse now than before surgery. My life is at a horrible stand still. Mentally, I need to resume activity. It is spring here in New England, but just pruning a little tree of tiny dead twigs for an hour caused me to feel terrible later. By mid day, i can feel a slight buldge if I feel down below. My hear has sank to an all time low. This surgeon saw nothing wrong at eight weeks and seemed unconcerned about me experiencing pain/pressure. This pressure quickly becomes pain that forces me to stop all activity.
After reading on this site, I knew recovery would be longer than described by doctors here; however, I do fear this surgery has all been for nothing. I'm certain I need to go back to a pessary and can now only hope that it will ease the tugging I feel enough to resume the activity I did pre-op. Seems that this surgery was worst decision of my life.
I see physical therapist as well as surgeon this week. Any thoughts on what I should ask or discuss would be really appreciated.
