    You poor thing Andrea, I do feel for you &

    wish you a speedy, pain free recovery.

    Is there any blood loss when you wee or

    offensive odour? I believe pain is our bodies

    way of letting us know something isn't right

    but of course in this case your body has

    been through so much so it could be

    repairing. If I were you hun I would let the

    GP know just to be sure & peace of mind.

    Have you been resting, not lifting ect?

    I have my appt Thursday for pre op checks

    & chat with consultant some I have all this

    to come. I'm worried about so much as I'm

    divorced & live alone, my sons live nearby

    but its hard with boys & no daughters.

    Anyway at the moment it is you that needs

    to get sorted. If you feel unwell, temp up or

    still having pain I

    would get checked over just to be sure

    Andrea. Let me know how things go please.

    God bless.

    Hi Andrea, do you see the district nurse to have it dressed?.If it's a bit tender red and hot it sounds like an infection, ask they will get you a prescription. I had my TAH last June 2015, I had about 5 infections because the wound didnt heal very well in 2 spots and ended up having to have it dressed everyday for 5 mths but got there in the end.Dont feel alarmed at this , it was because I am overweight and Diabetic that I had healing problems.Good Luck.

      Hi Susan this is Colleen.

      I'm due to have op soon so may I ask how your recovery went, I get told at

      every appointment that I am over

      weight & carry the weight around my

      middle. I am 62 now & was slim till I

      was 54 but just got heavier & since

      my rectocele op in 2014 I can't do

      any core exercises in fact even long

      even long walks bring on discomfort

      down below. Any advice would help.

      Thank you

    Hello andrea. I presume your abdominal wound has healed, am I correct? It sounds as though you may have a urine infection or a vaginal infection so see your GP. It's probably totally unrelated to your surgery.

    I'm no doctor but it could be a Uti? I would get it checked ASAP. Everyone's symptoms are different with a Uti, when I had one there was no odor or discharge just a pain that would prevent me from walking. My sister had had 2 and her symptoms were just like yours. Best of luck.👍 Prayers for a speedyrecovery recovery👼
