Just thought I would update you all after my visit to the consultant.  I am nearly 10 weeks post op after sacrospinous  fixation for vault prolapse.   For several weeks I have been stressing that  the surgery had not worked as things didn't  feel right.  Well after all that worry everything  is OK.!!  My consultant said it was all normal and is not obviously going to feel the same as before.  So I hope you ladies that are worrying  like I was this gives you a bit of comfort.  He said just to take things easy for a few more weeks and no lifting more than 12lbs EVER!! Don't know how easy that  will be but will have to try.

    Brilliant news!! So pleased for you. I too was worried that my op had failed but I think it does take a while to really settle down. Again, great news for you..... And no heavy lifting remember x

    Delighted to hear all is well, especially as I'm due to have same operation next Thursday ( assuming not cancelled due to bed shortage!) It's so comforting to be reminded that initial worries don't mean an op has failed.

    Did you have abdominal surgery as I'm having? I think it makes recovery longer. I'm crossing fingers that I'll be well enough to fly to England ( from N. Ireland ) with my husband to spend Christmas with our son and partner. Perhaps too optimistic, but thanks to you I'll not panic if I'm not recovered enough!

    Agree it's going to be hard to remember weight lifting limits. Best of luck for continued progress. X

      Hi, my surgery was done vaginally.  My recovery was very good apart from the initial buttock pain.  My consultant said no flying for about 8/10weeks after surgery. You should be ok for Christmas I would think. Hope all goes well for you and a quick recovery.
