I was curious if anyone else had my situation who is at least 9 weeks or longer post op posterior and anterior repair or similar repair. I am a somewhat active retired 68 year old who enjoyed a fairly active lifestyle PRE-surgery
Last Monday at 9 weeks post op, I started getting out a bit. I rode sitting on a pillow in the car for about 30 minutes to the restaurant where we had to wait to be seated standing for about 10 minutes. The next day I had to ride for about 40 minutes one way to give my mother's caregiver the day off. I really did not do much more than sit on the couch, get up to walk along the side of my mother through out the day to the bathroom and back. On Wednesday, I woke up with what felt like swelling inside my vagina pelvic floor area and my abdomen appeared distended. I rested the next two days and the swollen feeling seem to go away as well as the bloated distended abdomen. I did not feel like I over did it at all but guess my body had a different opinion.
This recovery is definitely more involved and longer than I ever imagined. It has certainly helped that I found this forum where everyone is sharing their recovery experiences. I honestly am not sure what I would be doing if I had not discovered this forum. Thank you in advance for any wisdom anyone might have.
Wishing everyone continued recovery success at whatever days or weeks you might be in your recovery!
