    Hi to mono,

    I went on holiday at 13 weeks post op, after I had my 1st anterior repair/hysterectomy.

    I did go swimming in the sea without any problems.

    I think as long as your discharge has stopped and no complications.

    They do encourage swimming as soon as discharge stops/ and wound sit's areally healed. Usually any time from around 8 weeks, assuming no complications.

    This time round I went on holiday 4 months post op and again swimming g in sea no problem.

    Hope you gave a lovely time at beach.
