    It is normal sarah. If you read some other posts on this forum I've mentioned the dreaded 4-6 week post op period where the sutures are healing and pulling on the repair, you also get some increased swelling as well. The tiredness is common because of the slow recovery rate of this type of surgery. Basically your body is telling you to rest.

    Hi Sarah, like matron says many ladies have noted they have symptoms like yours so yes it is normal. I am almost 6 weeks and find that I feel ok one day so I think yes that's it great feeling like my old normal and start back doing some of my old normal stuff but then I suffer the next day. When I feel tired or emotional or just ached I have what some ladies refer to as a floppy day. Just flop on the lounge and rest, rest, rest. It really helps. I found wrapped ice packs helped for the itching and with the swelling but also getting my knees up and weight off down there helped heaps.Healing hugs

    Hi, everyone...I'm 68 yrs. old and I developed a HUGE prolapse.  My GYN told me that is probably came from lifting heavy stretchers on my paramedic job years ago.  I also have coughing spells once in a while from allergies....This prolapse is below my bladder, and the bladder is pushing my vaginal wall inside out...Sarah, you mentioned being swollen.  I'm swollen without the surgery...lol....Does this thing hold urine, and make you very tired and sleepy.  I am average weight, but I feel like I am carrying around an extra hundred pounds of fluid in this thing...Is tht normal, and can you gain 10 lbs. of urine overnight.....thank you
