    Hi. I had to wait 16 weeks for my post op check! Surgeon asked me how I was, I said "fine" and he shook my hand and signed me off. I asked whether he wanted to check his handiwork and he said "no need".

    Seven months post op I started slight bleeding and discharge, then saw a couple of stiches down loo. They had failed to dissolve and tissue had grown over them. I have a sore open patch inside and now need to go back to hospital to have it cauterised. Demand an internal is my advice!

    i had a 4 week and 8 week check up and both times had an internal ! 4 week one was a tad uncomfortable 8 week one was no problem and it always puts your mind at rest to know there is no problems. Good luck tomorrow you will be fine X

      I am fundamentally opposed to private healthcare but this is a classic example of it being better than the NHS aftercare treatment I received. How can it vary so much??? It's not right.

      Rant over and I am really pleased you got such great care.x

      I know it will sound hypocritical but i am not a huge fan of private healthcare either - I gave in to the nags of my husband as he would have struggled to have given the support he did at any other time due to work so for that it came into its own. My consultant did say tho he would have seen me at 6 weeks post op for this particular surgery through the NHS whereas a lot of the time the GP is expected to do the post op check now X
