Back pain after anterior and posterior repair

Posted , 6 users are following.

I had cystocele and rectocele repair with a biological bladder sling . The Doctor said the surgery went well and I am 3 weeks out . I had a Foley catheter for 2 weeks that was awful!! It was irritating my urethra. Now I'm doing the self catheter. It's a lot better . My main complaint is not being able to pee on my own and my low back is killing me !! I can't sit to long my back just hurts ! I've been to the chiropractor a couple of times and it's still hurting .anyone else's have this problem?

I've found that it takes it out of me if I do a bit much x

      Hi Emma, I'm about 5 weeks and my back seems to go in and out ! I found that doing a little gentle stretching helps . I think it's normal for the low back to hurt . They told me if I get a fever or bleed heavy call it could be an infection. But I haven't had that I just feel like crap ! Haha. Yes it dose take it out if you . I do a little and the. I want to go lay down no energy.

      Hi Dianelou,

      So good to hear you feel great, it's is so difficult in the early weeks/months to get a balance between not overdoing things and resting, and as you say you do get a sore back sitting for too long. We get so unfit over recovery period too.

      Anyway great to hear your recovery is going so well and all positive.

      Phyl x?💖

    Thanks shannon does sound like it's just from sitting down a lot, I have been up and about some days doing to much, having 4 boys aged 21mths,4.5 and 11 it's hard to keep still. I hired a mobility scooter to do xmas shopping. Dianelou it's so good to hear that ur feeling great can't wait to get to that point.
