Ii am in the US but this seems to be the most active place on the Internet. I hope you don't mind.
I had surgery December 22nd, for rectocele, cystocele, prolapsed vagina and urethra sling. It was done vaginally. I was supposed to be released from the hospital the next morning but because I hade problems voiding I was kept 4 days. I had to self catheter for 2 days at home.
I can tell the surgery has helped my issues but now I'm not sure I am healing right.
It's been over 6 weeks and I still have discharge. Not to be to graphic but it looks like puss (infection) but no odor. The doctor swabbed me and found no infection. He did pull out 2 threads that were disolving. He said I was irritated inside. He suggested I lightly douche.
Also, I developed a severe case of what looks like cystic acne all over my labia, and the opening of my vagina. My doctor said it may be a reaction to the pads and to not wear loose exercise pants so my skin doesn't have constant contact.
I am 51 years old and actve. Not overweight and generally healthy. This surgery has really taken my energy, still giving me pain and I don't know how much more I can take.
