    Hi  Margaret

    Did you have any other procedures during your op? If not then I wonder if you walked too far?  How far had you walked previously? I must admit walking accross our courtyard to the office is enough for me! 

    If it doesn’t settle then perhaps discuss with your gp. I hope someone else in here can be of better assistance to you.wishing you continued healing.

    Its likely muscular pain. Try doing some gentle stretches.

    You haven't said how far you walked or how often previously you've been going for walks? Going for walks from early on is really important for whole bodies functioning. Starting with short walks around the house lots of times per day during first week, then slowly building that up to venturing outside, then 10min walks a few times per day in second week, 15mins in 3rd week, 20mins a few times a day in 4th week etc.

    Hi Margaret

    I had a anterior and prosterior sugery for a prolapse on the 15th Sept and I still get dull aches both down my leg and in my bottom. I also get a feeling occasionally if I have done too much of fullness in the op site. 

    When I went to see a consultant she said that often happens as you are trying to over compensate in other areas and you get aches and pains but if it becomes to much get it checked . 

    Hope it eases for you my lovely
