    hi Tracey

    yiur consultant is so right..no exercise till at least 6 weeks while yiu have stitches.

    not to worry yiu but these ops can leave you with leakage as with the prolapse it kinks the urethra

    and can prevent the leakage while yiu had the prolapse.

    I'm sure once you are okay to do your pelvuc floor you will start to see improvements but it can take a couple of months to strengthen your muscles and help leakage.

    its soo early days for yiu yet and keep resting up till at least 6 weeks. take carexx
