7 week Post Op Check Up for Posterior Repair, SSF & Perineum Repair

Posted , 4 users are following.

My urogynaecologist was very pleased with my progress, she said I need to be careful for another 2 weeks as I still have stitches (deeper stitches will last much longer) and there is still some discharge. No heavy lifting, ever.

I have to say the whole process has been much easier than I was expecting. I know it's still early days (this is my second prolapse op) but I hope if I continue to be careful it will be my last!

This forum has been so helpful and some of you (you know who you are!) have kept me sane over the last 3 years.

I wish you all a happy and healthy 2018. Xx

      Hi Margaret,

      Luckily I work part time in an office so although stressful at times it's not physical. It's difficult especially when there is a lot to do to rest but your health is the most important thing. Wishing you well. X
