Is it Prolapse repair failure

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi All,

I’ve had a hysterectomy & anterior prolapse repair almost three weeks ago & have had a bleed twice in two weeks, I’ve been experiencing pelvis pain & back pain, plus there is a bulge at the opening of my vagina, has anyone else experienced this please.

Many thanks

Kerry

    Hi

    I had the same op in January and it takes at least 8 weeks for everything to settle down..

    You can bleed up to 4 weeks after,as long as you don't fill a pad full within 1 he you are fine.

    The bulge you see us the spongy bit underneath urethra..when they repair front wall they don't come down to entrance. If they did you would wee yourself ,the bulgy but is nirmalt.

    Have g said all that please get ch checked out like I did.xx

      Thank you for your reply it’s made me feel less worried now, I’m going to get checked out on Tuesday just to be sure all is ok. Great to know others have experienced the same thing & did the bulge go away after you fully recovered.

      No the bulge i but won't go away as that's how it looks after anterior repair.. They cannot repair down to entrance. It isn't a prolapse just normal folds of ftontbwall.x

      I was told no baths till after 6 werks. Water makes stitches soggy and more chance of infection. You are bathing in your own germs.

      Make sense I thinkx

      I was not told anything about not having baths, but after reading up on it online it advises not to, but I only have a bath, will go and purchase an over the tap shower tomorrow.

      Many thanks

    ive had a show which my dr said it was dead blood which was ok .i was told the backache and pelvis ache which i thought was period pain was all part of the after effects of the prolapse operation .i didnt have a bulge like yourself but felt as if it had dropped again and i thought i had closed up because there was a lot of swelling inside .hope u have speedy recovery .my op was exactely 6 wks ago .only now starting to improve healthwise

    Those are signs of healing and the buld is scar tissue

    The pelvis pain is a sign of healing... and that is excepted. The bulge will eventually go down because your body is adjusting back to it self.. if you aren’t sure just go back to your doctor
