So glad I found this. I'm five weeks post op tomorrow. I had an anterior and posterior repair and a sling. For the first week I did nothing. My youngest two children went to stay with family and my 6yr old stayed home as she was in school. But I had other mum's collect her from school and keep her until bedtime. Second week I had all 3 children. So my husband would carry the baby down the stairs for me and I badically looked after him on the floor and lifted him to the sofa with me. My consultant had said I could go for short walks with the baby the week after my operation and do short drives. My husband took this as I am able to fully drive and care for baby! He did say if I bled that it was a sign I was doing too much. Anyway my two girls got a vomiting bug just before Christmas so I was stripping beds and washing bedclothes and washing floors. I've some bleeding since Christmas day but I'm not sure if it's a period or not. On the 26th I had to take pain relief and use ice packs as I was so sore. I also sometimes feel like a tightening sensation and feel tender. I also get quite tender wearing jeans, is that normal?
