Hello... I had sacrospinious fixation, posterior repair and enterocoele repair 8 days ago. I've read all the posts about buttock pain. Nobody told me how bad this would be .. like others on here I can only get relief lying down. The pain when standing or sitting is off the scale and when going to the toilet the worst; hot knives. Inside I feel a bearing down feeling, which I didn't have before the surgery. I can cope with the soreness but not this buttock pain. I've been given ibuprofen and paracetamol. It seems barbaric that I have to endure this pain. Is it really going to last 6 weeks? Not sure I can cope with that. Can anyone suggest better pain meds? I'm taking laxative but I can't push at all and the times I have been on the toilet but nothing comes out is simply frustrating. I'm anxious something is wrong inside too. Never had the bearing down feeling before. Also burning inside. I really wish I hadn't had it done but consultant said it was the worst prolapse he'd seen in a woman of 51 ... he never told me about buttock pain. Please someone tell me it does get less intense as the days go on. I'm a strong healthy woman with a good sex drive and I'm now worried that sex will be rubbish in the future. Any tips to reduce pain would be appreciated. My best friend, apart from my mum, who is doing so much for me , is my hot water bottle, such relief. I was taking cocodamol to start with but told to come off it.
