Hi. I'm new to this site & not too sure how it works! I had anterior & posterior prolapse repair plus vault repair 5 days ago & am feeling very low & anxious. Yesterday I was so concerned about no bowel movement since the op that although I was taking Lactulose twice daily, I also took a sachet of Movicol. The result was the most horrific bowel movement which involved a huge amount of straining - the one thing I'd been told not to do!! I'm now so frightened that I may have torn myself or the stitches. Does anyone know what the symptoms of that would be. I'm extremely sore & I think it's caused a haemmeroid. This whole experience is the worst I've ever known. Though I had hysterectomy 25 years ago this is by far the worse. I had the most horrendous coccyx pain when I came round from the op - I was not prepared for that. So sorry to be such a wimp! Any help or advice would be much appreciated thanks.
