Hi. I am 10 weeks post op now. Anterior and posterior repair,TVH and sacrospinous fixation. Textbook recovery. Saw doc 3 weeks ago and given the all clear.
I am an active healthy 50 yo. I have been to a specialist physio for exercise advice. So life is begging to get back to a sort of normal.
I know 10 weeks is still relatively early in the healing, internal stitches will start be there. But although I have been lucky and not put on weight I still can’t stand wearing normal clothes. Belly is flat in the mornings but I look 6 months by bedtime. I also find seams in trousers and knickers irritating down below. Waistbands too restrictive. Much more comfortable in elastic 😬.
In the evening I find it hard to sit comfortablely, feeling a pull or tug unless I’m lying flat.
I also feel the muscles (?I think) or flesh that runs front to back along vagina inside inner labia are soft and relaxed on a morning but feel more solid in the evening (I’m assume swelling).
Check myself about 10 times a day to check for any change ie bulging. In other words still panicking that it might fail.
Have ladies further into recovery had the same experiences. If so when did you start to feel normal and not conscious you are in recovery every hour of the day.
