Hi, I am now 19 days post op for anterior cystocele repair. I am 69 and had hysterectomy and removal of ovaries aged 36. Was on hrt until 62. My urogynae nurse has me on pelvic floor exercises. Yesterday I became more aware of my stitches inside and wee started to burn a bit. Have taken a couple of sachets of cystitis drink from chemist which seems to be helping. My question is does anyone know if I can take a probiotic supplement at the moment? I take probio7 every now and then for a month as it seems to help gut and vaginal health. Any thoughts gratefully received.

    I don't see why that would be a problem.  It would most likely be a benefit to your body!!  I'd go for it.  Nothing

    ?beats a try.  Hope eeverything goes well for you.

      Thanks for your advice, I think after going through this I am a little paranoid about getting anything wrong!

    I am 30 days post op and have been on strong antibiotics because of an infection. I now have thrush so have been taking probiotics to try and get rid of it.
