Hello everyone. I have been reading other posts with interest and I am hoping for help and reassurance.
I had my surgery 2 weeks ago today. Cystocele rectocele tvt.
I was kept in 3 nights and given Advil and Tylenol together every 6 hours. When the pain got very bad I was given supeudol. When discharged I was also given a prescription for supeudol.
I came home with catheter in and had it removed on the Sunday. I had trouble peeing so they kept putting it back in. One time they accidentally used a late one and it was in 6 hours before being noticed. I am allergic to latex.
I have used all the supeudol and had to call the doctor today and ask for more pain relief. I opted for codeine as the supeudol is narcotic and I worry about addiction. I already suffer from depression.
I was hoping by 2 weeks that the pain would be lessening. But it isn't.
I spend the days laying down as sitting is far too painful. Whenever I stand up it feels like my insides are being ripped out. I don't know how much longer I can handle this for. I lay in bed sometimes sobbing it hurts so much. I had a small movement yesterday, first one since surgery. They gave me an enema in hospital.
How long will this pain last for? I am supposed to go back to work next week! Is this much pain normal? Laying here now it feels like someone has stuffed a knife inside me and is twisting it around. I dread getting up to go pee as the pain will exhaust me and I will be in agony for ages when I lay down again.
Any assurance is greatly appreciated.
