    I'm sure you are still swollen hun.. If you are worried at all please go Back to your consultant. He or she will be able to confirm your healing well and identify any issues. It's impossible for us to know what's swelling or prolapse at this stage as you are nowhere near healed.that's what I would do. Actually I'm going Monday and I'm 12 wks post tvh and anterior repair. I need reassurance so I'm off to see him again lol. They really don't mind hun.good 👍xx

    Sorry you're going through this.  Though you don't have an infection, you will certainly have some inflammation that makes it difficult for your intestines to function.  Any surgery causes inflammation, and it does take a while for that to go down. xx

    Hi Karen.

    I apologize for delay. 

    Yes. I inquired about all bowel concerns Tuesday of this week with my physician.

    From what I understand, is that the entire recovery process takes a bit of time. Your body has gone through a lot.

    Did your doctor inquire about your daily water and fiber intake? I was told to drink a considerable amount of water. 

    You may want to revisit this issue with your GYN physician as well. 

    I hope this helps.

    Feel better Karen. 🤗💕
