I’m 59 and have a 41 year history of prolapses . Had my latest cystocele repair 3 and 1/2 weeks ago . I’ve been told by a nurse at my pre admission app that I can drive after the 4 week mark .. but then the specialist said 5-6 weeks is normal .then I read on the net it’s okay to drive after 2 weeks ! Of course Id love to take the nurses advice ! But have been taking a bus locally in my town to get up the street to the chemist ect .
The question is , that the bus is so jerky stopping and starting going around corners sharply that I feel it is more difficult on my pelvic floor and suture areas then driving would. But I have to get out of the house because being cooped up is driving me bonkers and I have no one else around to help me out to get a few things that I need .
What do other ladies ( or any medics ) think about all this ? I’m a bit worrythat all the jerking on the bus has upset my stitches. I’ve come up with an idea though ...to tighten my pelvic floor is when all the to-ing and fro-ing is going on instead of having to just brace everything with my feet and arms . 😉Hope this is a good idea
