I am on day 18 after a rectocele and major reconstruction of perinium. He said my stitches start at 3cm deep and get deeper taking about 10 or more weeks to dissolve. I went to see him yesterday and he told me not to look again with a mirror haha because I feel it’s swollen shut inside but he checked everything and said it couldn’t be going better ??🙏💛
Anyway I am still in a lot of pain and if I’m up for more than an 30 mins I can barely walk!! So still resting and lying around loads .
My main question is about work? Consultant has said minimum 6 weeks but it’s up to me... not helpful! He said some women have a lot longer but it’s totally up to me when I feel ready. Problem is it’s a new job I’m going to so I need to give them an idea! I currently suggested 21st May (6 weeks post op) but can’t inagine sitting in a chair all day 😫 I’m just hoping people can tell me when they started to feel ok being upright!! My job is 21 hours a week as a HR Advisor if that helps x x thanks all
