Had Post op check up today

Posted , 4 users are following.

Just had my 6 week check up, all good, he can still feel quite a few stitches inside but said OK, he also told me they are single stitches not a continuous one. Anyway light exercise like walking swimming, exercise bike and build up, no exercise that involves heavy lifting or pushing to be avoided for ever if possible. He said wait at least 3 months to start lots of exercise as the stitches will take at least that long to start devolving. All OK and he said my vigina looks great ha ha been doing keagles since week 3 but only up to strength 3 so he was addiment that after this op every woman should do them 3 times a day FOREVER, so one happy lady, oh and can now try gentle sex, hope this helps someone,

      Thanks matron and yes he was very good, as I am on warfarin and have been for 15 years ( I am 55)he also got me an appointment with the haematology for more tests to see if I can now come off it. He says 15 years is long enough. He was great also sent letter to doctors expressing his wishes for them to follow up on my oxibutin meds in at least 6 months, 😉
