    jackie I'm so pleased things are going well for you and you're obviously being very cautious and not rushing things which is very important. You sound as though you have a lovely doctor as well which helps. I hope you continue to feel better day by day.

      I am 6 weeks tomorrow post surgery for same as you plus a bladder sling. My energy levels are still not up to what they were post op though. My job demands I go 300 miles an hour and I am worried that I won't be able to keep up. I would love to go swimming too and am still on the laxatives twice a day.
