Hi ladies I know I'm still very early in recovery after anterior repair ( day 4 for me ) but exercise wise I have been told nothing ! My consultant made me feel a bit silly when she came round to see me as she signed me off for 4 weeks and said after that I will be fine for everything ! I had to ask her about lifting, driving etc ... I said to her that after my vaginal hysterectomy I was off for 6 weeks so was Concerned at only been given 4 after this op! ? Although the nurse did tell me to go bk to my own doc for a other sick note if still not feeling well , can tell you know I will be taking an extra 2 weeks off ! She told me this op was nothing like my hysterectomy and made it feel like not major surgery at all ? I really can't fault her for the appointments I had before the op and all the information she gave me on my options etc as she was very informative .... But am I wrong in thinking this op is like a hysterectomy ?? It's still going in thru the same place etc , getting pulled about in there , I have lots of scar tissue also , so she doesnt recommend anymore surgery down there ... This is why I need to be on top form with this healing as don't want it to go wrong !! Anyway now am rambling in my bored state of mind , getting back to the question ...I love my walks for exercise , when can I start taking like 1 or 2 mile walks and build them up?
