For those of you that keep up with me... I wanted to update you on my progress. First of all I want to point out that I feel my surgeon is over optimistic. Lol. My surgeon did an exam today and said ...(drum roll please 🥁🥁🥁🎺🎺🎺... EVERYTHING LOOKS EXCELLENT!!!! I have never been so relieved. I went for 2 weeks certain that my surgery had failed because my vaginal opening was looking like what nightmares are made of! I was in the grocery store maybe 3 nights ago and I knew I had been on my feet all day and had really been stupid and I had to leave the store due to pain and swelling and go wait in the truck while my husband paid. I was so discouraged. I went home and fell asleep with an ice pack between my legs. The next morning I woke up with the “stuck tampon feel” and thought nothing had changed. An hour or so went by and then I stopped having that weird full sensation. Naturally I thought “it is probably because the stitches have gotten too loose & aren’t pulling anymore.” Basically I thought anything but good thoughts about it. Miraculously I’ve not gotten the full sensation anymore so I got the dreaded mirror out and everything looks just beautiful down there! I am so satisfied with how it looks. My doc did an exam using one finger and it did hurt really bad. It confused me because he actually cleared me to resume sex and I feel in no way, shape or form ready to resume sex! That’s why I say my doc is over optimistic. He said I could start lifting again...huh...I think not! I asked him to please write me out for 3 extra weeks (8 total weeks off work) & he did. I am still sore and as a matter of fact I have had nerve pain ever since the exam from him feeling around in there. One wonderful thing he told me is that I can get in the ocean on my vacation starting tomorrow for 10-15 mins at a time. He said it would be healing to get in the salt water! Yay!!! I am so excited about the way things have turned out so far.
