Hi everyone, I am new to this site (though I have spent hours perusing and wish I had found it earlier....so much helpful info).
I am now 12 weeks post robotic sacrocolporectopexy with mesh due to reoccurence yet again of rectocele,cystocele, vault prolapse plus intersusseption.
Previous history of TVT (tape), followed by
2 cystoceles, 3 rectoceles (one with mesh, all vaginally), hysterectomy (vaginally), and the latest procedure abdominal/robotically with Y shaped mesh.
Prior to recent sacrocolporectopexy the 5+ repairs all failed at some point leaving me with pain, urinary incontinence and obstructive defecation syndrome (including Bile Acid Malabsorption Diarrhea diagnosed 15 months ago)..previously told it was IBS for 30+years!! .
I am still swollen in abdomen and undercarriage..with that telltale heavy feeling. I get lots of little jabbing/nipping pain in all areas but also at the robotic port sites (im assuming its tissue healing?).
I still have not had a post Op check up (should have been one at 4 weeks!!), somehow i got missed and earliest appt mid March!. In fact I have not even seen consultant since before the Op!!
I cant seem to find any info with this specific surgery title and hope someone here has any advice from similar procedures. I am taking as much care re lifting/straining etc as i can but had hoped to be less incapacitated by now. Thank you in advance of any info forthcoming.
