Hi I had an Anterior and Posterior Vaginal plus a Peritoneal repair on the 20th October. I must say that the recovery period was worse tha I expected ( I am a nurse and the eternal optimist and told work that I would be back after 2 weeks etc.) I really had to rest for a good two weeks doing very little apart from going downstairs and doing very light chores as I just felt very fragile. I also had an infection which took me to A and E ( ( I had an offensive discharge and could see yellow tissue at the entrance to my vagina) 10 days after my op and I was then put on co-amoxiclav and Metronidazole which made me feel quite ill. But I now feel so well 5 weeks on. I can now have a proper wee and poo which is great. All my stirches have healed and I went back to work after 4 weeks on a return to work prograame doing mornings only in an educational nursing post. I still need to have a rest in the afternoon and I am very aware that I am still healing and I am really aware of lifting things. I have my 7 week check up in two weeks and will not contemplate intercourse with hubby until after that. I feel very sorry for all the people on here and I realise that my surgery was not as extensive as others on this forum but I just wanted to give a more positive picture
