Just felt I should update you all. I had my surgery end of November. I know everyone is different but for me, now, this surgery has been amazing. I would honestly recommend it to anyone.
Now, don't all think I've sailed through this as I haven't! I've had water infection, intense pain, spent about 8 weeks walking like I had a poker up my bum! I also had a week around say 4 weeks post op when I wished I'd never had the surgery. I constantly worried in the early days that I was going to prolapse again too. Had a 'lump' at the entrance which has now gone, was TERRIFIED of my first bm. And sex!... Read my earlier posts... I cried! Worried I was putting on weight through lack of excercise...All the worries you read on here, I had them!
There is however hope after all this! I'm now so ecstatically happy I had the surgery! No more dragging prolapse, no more baggy/ post pregnancy gape down below, no more urine leaks, I can wear tampons again comfortably, sex is just wow... Amazing: I can feel EVERYTHING! I'm totally back to life before surgery but better! It may sound dramatic but it's made me feel sexy again and at only 37, that's a huge thing.
So ladies, you are bound to worry, stress, try to do too much etc but it's natural... Believe me, I drove my husband mental with my constant worry and witling about it... But it is so worth it. I don't want to cause roll of the eyes/ well bully for you in anyone but thought I would share a positive story for all you who are worrying etc.
Take care, and keep sharing on this amazing forum. And matron, you are the icing on the cake... I just hope you realise what an amazing, caring lady you are who has given hope and advice to so many, and humour when needed too!
