Hi Ladies, I've been reading your posts for a few weeks now. The advice and support you give others is amazing!
i am due surgery in 2 weeks for vaginal vault repair, rectocele repair and probably cystocele repair too (the consultant said my bladder had prolapsed too but it's not as severe as the other prolapses so they will wait and see how bad it is when I am under general).
i had a hysterectomy when I was 27 due to prolapse uterus and then 3 years later had another op for stress incontinence and prolapsed bladder. Have had no problems since, and I am now 45. I noticed the rectocele a couple of years ago but no major issues until April this year when I visited the GP.
My question is that my partner and I want to book a mini break in October, it will literally be 6 weeks post op. Only going for 2 days away but it will be a full-on break to Liverpool visiting the Cavern Club and watching bands all day. Will I just be too tired for this? I have joined a gym since finding out I need surgery, and do lots of exercise and have lost weight, so I feel fit and healthy.
But I don't want my partner to waste his money booking this trip if I am still tired all the time and need to rest? The other point to consider is if my op gets cancelled and rebooked a couple of weeks later I will only be 3-4 weeks post op, come the end of October.
i really want something to work towards and look forward to, but I just don't know.
any thoughts/advice greatly appreciated.
