i am now 8 weeks post op for prolapse bladder uterus and rectum. The operation was done via laparoscopy and I was in hospital, here in France for,3 days. The aftercare was great. A nurse came, every day for two weeks,to give me an anti-coagulant injection and I had pain killers and stool softener on prescription. The first 2 weeks it was difficult to pass a bm, but that has now resolved itself, thank goodness! I saw the surgeon 5 weeks after the op and he said not to lift anything too heavy until after mid December but otherwise was happy with my progress. 2 weeks ago my husband had a full knee replacement, so it's my turn to be the nurse.I have had to start driving after many many years of not doing so, and also walking the dog on my own.
i think I have been very lucky as had virtually no pain. I followed the advice given to the letter and I think that is why I am doing so well. I was really quite scared after reading some of the posts on here before my op but I want to reassure anyone considering this op to go ahead with it and most importantly do what you are told, if in doubt question everything! Good luck to those of you waiting for your ops, you will be fine.
