Hi everyone. It's now just over 5 weeks since my rectocele and enterocele repair and since last night I've been in a lot of pain. I had been feeling a lot better, just some minor discomfort but last night I swelled up like a balloon down there and I've been taking ibuprofen and paracetamol every 4 hours. It dulls, but doesn't get rid of the pain completely. I'm considering taking codeine again. It doesn't hurt when I wee and I don't have a discharge. I have been upping my activity levels this week, but no heavy lifting or using the vacuum cleaner. I drove for the first time yesterday, only a mile or so each way. I also had an exploratory 'feel' down below the other night. I'm worried I've done some damage 😞Has anyone else had a similar problem at this stage of recovery?
