    Hi Karen, I’m day 3 post op, vaginal hysterectomy and posterior prolapse. I made sure I ate very healthily, before, in hospital (I took my own fibre filled food) and at home. My op went very well, I was out in less than 24 hrs as I came off the morphine after a few hours (it made me feel and be sick) and I felt great. 

    I can cough without feeling I need to pee myself (I had an anterior prolapse, which got pulled up when they stitched the hysterectomy up) and pee properly. I’ve been overactive with pooing as I overdid the fibre and fruit! But, it has made it easy to go and it just moves right on out, no hard push, no sitting in a pouch. I tell you, I can feel the benefits of this already! 

    Main problem i have is trying not to do too much! No painkillers now, very little bleeding, not having that terrible tiredness that others have. Hoping it never hits me! As I said, I eat very healthily, very little dairy, no meat,  a little fish (if I know the source), no refined or processed foods. I’m positive this has helped my recovery, along with a Positive Mental Attitude of course. 

    You will I’ll be fine, embrace the new improved body, enjoy the first normal poo! I even felt a bit horny today, something I haven’t for a while! 😳 but that will have to wait! 

    All the best. 👍🤞😊🙏

      Hi Laurie wow you are doing amazing that makes me feel better about tomorrow they are going to hitch things up for me too my main pain is from everything pushing down on rectum and perineum and interfering with opening bowels. And for you to feel horny so soon is a fabulous sign..hope I recover as well as you. I’ve been watching what I eat more than usual to keep things moving but today going a little too much.

      I have cervix and uterus prolapse cervix is pressing into rectum also have lots of scarring on cervix I could have had mesh but this was not the path I wanted to go down so I’m having hysterectomy with extra sutures for support. A standing mri confirmed the position of uterus and cervix fingers crossed for tomorrow’s surgery
