11 weeks post recetocle any cystocele aching after housework?

Posted , 10 users are following.

It's so frustrating, After doing two hours housework. Nothing to heavy. Vacuuming, dusting, no real scrubbing. My rear feels like been kicked. I stopped and put my feet up for awhile. How long does it take to get back to normal? Should I not be vacuuming yet?

    I'm not sure about back to normal lol I'm 6 months post a & P repair and even though I had a few complications, I still get the back ache and heavy feeling if I do too much so I think the answer is listen to your body x

    Hi I was the same at that stage and it really took my by surprise that I still couldn't do what I wanted but am just about back to full fitness now. I had my op on 10th may and only the last 2-3 weeks I feel I've turned the corner. I'm a good bit overweight but can easily walk 5km now and swimming no problem. I can carry heavier loads but try not to but stillborn get pain and heavy feeling if I forget to drink lots of water and end up constipated. I'm 45 and found the recovery very frustrating and emotionally I have been a total wreck which has really surprised me as I'm a strong character. Chin up another month or so and you will be right as rain xx

      I just love this site. It makes you feel so much better when you can find out so much more from ladies who are going down the same path as you are.

      I fiqured that I had done to much....

      It does effect you emotional too.

      I've gain some weight in the belly too, I'm so ready to get it off, but feel I still shouldn't do to much yet. For now I wear I wear loose cloths.

      Thanks Liz.

      My belly swelled up too, it still swells up if I do too much but on the positive the weight I put on it is now coming off. I'm so pleased I found this forum too as they definitely do not give you enough information,according to the paperwork you can Hoover work etc at 12 weeks, they I'm still off work at 6mths although we are all different take care x

    Hi grace, I was nearly 4 month's before I vacuumed. Your body is telling you you've done too much.

      I feel pretty strong now, just don't hold out as long. Much better than I was a six weeks. Until recently I only straighten up. Lucky that had a cleaner come in every two weeks. I'm very glad when the two weeks come around, I was one to vacuum 4 times a week.

      Now I just look at it, doesn't drive me as crazy as it use too.

      Every week you will find you feel better.

      Best of care.🌺

    Sometimes we don't realize how much of a heavy works we've been doing. Vacuuming seems to be such an eazy task but when you thing of a pressure you put on that brush when pushing and pulling - it is a heavy job and a lot of pressure on your freshly repaired muscles!

    don't get frustrated, just take it eazy and slow, you've had very complicated surgery and if you don't look after yourself now, there's a risc of it happening again.

    I'm the same - it's my seventh week only after the same procedure, back at work, 8-9 hours serving on my feet ( no sitting or resting at all ), plus housework on the top of everything, but nothing heavy to lift or to push ( my body weight is enough to cary around - need to lose about 5-7 kg ), need to give up this OCD of cleaning!!!

    Best regards

    Hi I wouldn't be vacuuming yet. I have just started into my 6 month postop. And still am being very careful in what I do.
