Hi, I have a bladder prolapse and stress incontinence and my surgeon recommended the colposuspension as this would lift the prolapse and fingers crossed stop the leaks.
I had my op 5 weeks ago and my wound has healed really well and the prolapse feels a lot better ( still feel it a little but no where near the bulge pre op) and I’ve sneezed a couple of times with no leaks but my abdomen is still sore and uncomfortable. I’m having pains in my lower abdomen which feel like something is pulling and it is a stinging kind of pain and my upper abdomen is sore and uncomfortable especially when I get up. I wondered if this is normal at 5 weeks post op? Am I expecting miracles? Is recovery a lot longer than 5 weeks? I'm trying to take it easy and not do too much as I don’t want to undo the good work done by my surgeon.
I didn’t ask my surgeon when to start my pelvic floor exercises again, do you think it’s ok to start them now? Any advice would be greatly appreciated
