    The simple answer is that all repairs are different from the next. Depends on grade of prolapse in first place. How extensive the repair was and if vag was too loose prior due to traumatic birth, the prolapse, & just generally each persons build. Depends on if other repairs like perineum were done too. So what's it like for one is going to vary widely to the next. I do know that if you have A&P repair done together you can end up too tight, but that also depends on all the above, plus more factors.

    I'm curious about this as well. Also did everyone wait the recommended 6 weeks or longer?

    I waited 7 weeks because I wanted the OK from the surgeon. Plus it took that long for the swelling to go down! For awhile I wasn't sure there would be enough room. But thanks to this forum I learned that I just needed to be patient!
