I am 18 weeks post op after having a hysterectomy and rectocele repair. Went back to work 6 weeks ago but unfortunatly have not been able to go back full time yet as i have problems sitting up straight on a chair as it becomes really painful. I have been kneeling at my computer at work as the pressure gets unbearable after around an hour. Work are now in the process of getting me a kneeling stool as a doughnut cushion didnt help.
If i can slouch like i do on my settee at home i dont get the intense pain like i do if i have to sit up straight for long. Still get that falling out feeling sometimes which i had before my op.
I saw my consultant last week and he says i have a cystocele but its not bad enough to operate on yet and i have scarring where they did the rectocele repair. Apparently it was quite an extensive repair. I have to try using dilators to help soften the scarring and open the vagina more as it is very narrow after the op. I have a f/u in 4 weeks and if its no better i could have another op to cut out the scarring.
Has anyone else experienced this? I really dont want another op if i can help it.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated TIA
