Hello all. I'm 38yrs old, had my surgery the day before my birthday which made me 37 at the time. Today makes 1 week since my surgery (hysterectomy kept ovaries/ cystocele/enterocele/rectocele/vaginal vault suspension) everything was done vaginally. The recovery is dreadful! I no longer look forward to sleeping, it's as if my pain intensifies when I'm laying down. I have this horrible lower back pain that at times travels down my thigh, the cramps I get when I have a BM are dreadful. I'm constantly urinating which causes me to keep getting up, I have a super tight area in my girl parts that hurts to touch. I knew the recovery wasn't going to be easy but I didn't think it would be this bad. Sometimes I just breakdown and cry because I'm desperate for relief. Can anyone please offer any advice on how to manage this pain, I just want to start feeling comfortable again. I being active, I miss working, I miss my old self.
