    A Urogynaecologist will tell you after you've been examined. It's often difficult for a patient to be absolutely sure.

      Hi Matron,

      Sorry to butt in. I now almost 10 weeks post op for A&P Have been having discomfort at the back can't seem to get my walks by 30/35 mins without getting really sore.

      Hubby says definitely improving, movement about house much better.

      Up till now not really felt anything too much at the back except irritating stitch at perineum which sorted itself.

      But I think what has happened is that internal swelling that I did not realize was there at back has went down and it now fells all a bit raw. Discovered another annoying stitch like catgut just about centimeter inside back wall of vag..., .

      So now wondering if the posterior usually takes this much longer to heal than the anterior, is this the posterior still to go through the loosening of of stitches as yet and wound still to draw together.

      Or have I just been sitting upright too much.

      Phyl x☺

      The posterior definitely takes longer to heal phyllis, I remember mine did and I know a couple of friends who said the same. The sutures are usually stronger as well. If the stitch is a nuisance you could always as the practice nurse at the surgery to take a look and she may snip it, they often get asked now not everyone has a post op check. Can you touch the raw bit?

    Sorry anna some of my post disappeared, I think I hit the wrong button. When did you have your anterior and posterior repair? It's rare for them to fail and if you've recently had surgery and you feel a lump the chances are it's swelling however if you think there's a real risk one or both have failed you need to see your GP.
