10 weeks post op.

Posted , 8 users are following.

After 12 days in hospital 3 of those in ICCU I am now home. Feeling a little vulnerable but breathing properly. The prolapse repairs have worked and believe me , the bladder repair had been thoroughly tested by being in hospital. Having to press a button and wait for a nurse would have been terrible before the op and I would have had a lot a accidents as it was I was dry, able to hold easily and comfortably. I have no worries over the op and down there feels so normal.

    Welcome home clare and lovely to hear from you. You must take things easy and rest although you've probably been told that. I'm saddened to read about waiting for a nurse when you need the loo. There would have been hell to pay on my ward if that happened! xx

      In the ICCU it took quite a time to disconnectme from all the machines. On ward is was waiting for someone to connect me to an oxygen tank. It's just beginning to dawn on me what actually could have happened. My head feels messed up especially at night I'm having trouble sleeping but it has only been a couple of days.

      I've heard patients say they have trouble sleeping when they've been in ICCU. It's probably because they don't differentiate between day and night very often because patients are so ill.

    That's great Clare , glad it's all working ok . I'm 6 weeks post op for posterior and anterior repair and cervix removal from a previous subtotal hysterectomy. All seems ok up to now . Hoping the looking pregnant will go soon ! It's lovely not getting the urge to go all the time and having to push the prolapse out the way and all the heavy hanging out uncomfortouble feeling. I wish you well for the future .
