It's my first time posting here. I'll try keep my story short here.
I am 28 years old, had a vaginal delivery to my first baby 7 months ago. I had a tear on my perineal body which wasn't stitched up properly. So I ended up having a wide open vagina and it wouldn't even close up when I squeeze it. It was very distressing for me and of course my husband, so we decided to fix it and have a C-section for the next baby.
However, at the consultation I was diagnosed with 2nd degree back wall prolapse. And the surgeon suggested to fix it at the same time (his reason was it would support the perineal body better), which I did, and it solved my terrible lower abdonimal and back pain from day 1. ( I even had no idea what caused it previously)
Now I am 19 days op, everything has been going really well. But I am very stressed about lifting my 7 months old baby even after 6 weeks' recovery. The surgeon has advised me it is not recommended to lift anything over 10kg with 12 weeks, and he 10kgs
Has anyone here had similar experience or some advice about this? I know it might sound very foolish to you that I decided to have a prolapse surgery before even I complete my family. But I am really glad I had it, esp now my vagina can actually close again. I just couldn't move on with my life feeling it open everyday.
Thank you everyone!
