I am 5 weeks and 1 day post op for anterior and posterior repair of pelvic floor. Starting to manage much more, doing more light household tasks, on my feet much more, but still taking it easy, no more nippy feelings and no spot bleeding. Swelling down a little and only a little uncomfortable down below. Doing a little and resting lots, but definitely feels much different from last week.
Sun is shining but still to cold to sit out, and daffodils are dancing in three breeze, can't wait for summer. Missing my swimming and cycling, not sure if I will be able to return to cycling at 12 weeks post op, my teenager is eyeing up my bike as she is too big for her own now!
Fed up reading and watching films, need to find something new to do.
Cut bank my lactose to 5 ml twice a day , works if I remember to take before breakfast and dinner. Doing my pelvic floor exercises 3 times a day (10 quick, 10 long), will start to add another to take me to 4 times a day.
Still not hovering, mopping, ironing or doing heavy washing loads will leave that till week 7/8. Be good if we could fast forward time and by pass recovery.
Have my GP check next week to see if I am ready for light office work or leaving return till 12 weeks, also got a wedding a week on Fri, dreading hos I'm going to be after hours of standing/ sitting about, will stay for ceremony and meal but will then head home. Will probably put me back some, but don't want to look like I'm snubbing them!
Hope you are all making good progress too, and good luck too those still waiting for op, and please take things easy, those who rake it easy and rest plenty seem to recover quickest as you can't rush recovery.
