Hi all, Im 9 weeks post op for Posterior Repair

Posted , 6 users are following.

And have tried so hard to be "good" not lifting etc - just started a bit of light housework and lifting washing now, don't feel ready for vacuuming or much else. Just the last couple of days though I've had the dreaded "bulgey feeling" back, not nearly as much as I remember in first month or so, thank goodness. I am a worrier. My question is, to those who relate to that sensation, is it something that will 'come and go' as part of normal recovery? Or does it signal total disaster?!?!? I can cope if I know what to expect, and that it might just come and go a bit, and more rest will help it?? Thanks!!

    Hey Ruth,

    Yes I had exactly the same thing, and I could feel tissue when I self examined. But now I’m 4.5months post op and things are settling down a lot. Physio has told me its normal too. Continue with your exercises and b kind to your body & you’ll be fine

      Yer it turned out normal for me hon.

      I remember thinking to myself .”. oh crap, my prolapse is starting to drop again” - whenever it felt bulging or heavy I would literally stop what was doing, put my feet up & rest. 

      And this started at the 9 week mark !

      Let me know how you go hon

      Hey Karen,

      No hon I hardly had any pain at all. However , I had an anterior prolapse & hyster. I have heard there is much more pain involved with a posterior tho, if that helps.

      8 weeks is such early days sweet, take it easy & be kind to your body.

    What about the "bulgey" feeling tho...that's what I hate at 10 weeks post posterior repair still!! Feel like there's a horizontal 'ridge' along the middle back of vag wall.....can't stand it...not quite as bad as "sideways wedged tampon" of the early days, but still so unpleasant and distracting...is this normal and will it go away?!? R

      Hi Ruth, how your symptoms now?( I don’t receive notifications so have only checked back in to our discussion )

      I hope someone who has had a posterior can offer advice, as I’ve had the anterior & hyster.

      Hi Candy, much better thanks, all seems to be working well, still take a softener and try hard to remember to do my excercises.

      Thanks and hope you are well too.

      Ruth
