I am balancing two issues - back pain and rectocele. The rectocele is very large and symptomatic. Unfortunately the back pain is even worse and has been the first priority for both doctors. My urogyn, like many, is pretty optimistic about recovery and said no restrictions at all after 6 weeks.
I really want to protect my repair and make sure it heals well so it lasts a long time. I know things are still healing at 6 weeks and I don't want to be pushed into doing too much and jeopardizing the repair.
Some of the things I'm doing in physical therapy now, and that I know they will want me to resume, are trying to work on my core and my glutes so legs are moving a bit and it seems like it might pull and be uncomfortable.
How many weeks opst-surgery would you have felt comfortable doing exercises like clamshell leglifts? Walking a mile? Yoga?
I see my back doctor soon and I want to make sure I give him a good idea of what I can do so that if he thinks we should wait on surgery, we do. I don't want any pressure to push it and damage the repair.
Thank you for your help, as always!
