    Hi , I had a TVT op in 2011 and I went from jogging with 2 sanitary  towels in to running a marathon with no problems at all . I could sneeze and cough again without peeing and went on a trampoline with my children for the first time in years. I have just had anterior and prosterior surgery for a prolapse and have had a harder recovery. Only 4 weeks in but am still quite sore which I think was due to tight stitches. The surgery does make a big difference though and for quality of life it’s very good. Good luck with whatever you decide and I hope it goes well x

      Posted before I finished. I was meant to say days where I sneeze and pee myself . 

      If I have a cough it's terrible I saturate myself . But like I said a have good days .

      I have a cystocele that's supposedly mild but yet I'm so uncomfortable with it especially after a walk or doing lots of housework . I'm 35 with 2 girls age 4 and 8 . They need a fully functioning mummy!

      To add to that since all this I've suffered terrible back pain .

      Lots of decisions to make about surgery x
