    Have you been resting with your feet up and no lifting? Are you constipated? 8 weeks is really not a long time and you may still be healing especially as your consultant thinks you are ok. Was it a urologist or gynaecologist or urogynaecologist who did your operation? A urogynaecologist is best. If it was a urologist you may need to see a urogynaecologist or even just a gynaecologist. Something else may be amiss.

    Give yourself some "me" time with lots of doing nothing. If after 4 more weeks you feel the same then try to see another consultant.

    Have you been given any post operative pelvic floor exercises?
