More pain and misery!

Posted , 9 users are following.

I'm 6 weeks post op for major prolapse surgery and have been doing really well, obviously taking it steady and resting a lot. This week have felt like getting out and driving. Today just popped to the local shop in the car and now in lots of pain didn't overdo it or so I thought, feel like I've gone back to week 3. What have I done? I've gone back to bed with some painkillers and it's my birthday😞

      it feels like pressure pain over the whole pelvic vault area, I've had it before so I think I've pulled where the new scar tissue is forming, I've probably overstretched or something, my poor bladder has gone into spasm!

    Hi Terri, happy Birthday did you build up to going out? I remember the same fealings after my hystorectomy pain and upset with myself I think  you need to take it easy and small walks a day first, matron will be on at some point today and will help with your questions.I am 8days after the operation and have done very little till this morning and I walked on the drive stood had a conversation with a frend and needed to go back to bed for a lay down.

    we are all different what operation did you have love?

    Happy Birthday Terri, hope your feeling better. I think we underestimate all the time what we do. If go back to doctors if experiencing a lot of pain. Maybe ask for a scan to see what's going on! I did and found have a haematoma! Take care x

    You use your pelvic floor muscles when you drive terri. Did you do the test I always recommend (and recommended by Urogynaecologists) to check you are healed enough to drive? 

    Happy birthday terri. You'll have to celebrate when you feel better 🎂🎉
