Help! 6 weeks post Lap Ventral Mesh Rectopexy an panicking!

Posted , 5 users are following.

Is there anyone else who's had this op for prolapse. I'm worried there's something wrong. I am still getting lots of pain in my vagina and rectum when I walk and try and do normal stuff. It's been 6 weeks since the surgery and I really want my life back. Maybe this is normal recovery and I should just keep laying down? If anyone can give advice I would appreciate it.

    You are still at an early stage and the deeper sutures are still healing. Please take it easy, it’s not easy to get over a prolapse op. And harder when you’ve have a rectopexy.

    It takes months to get anywhere near recovery. Yes lie down and rest when you need to. The pain is your bodies way of telling you to rest more.
