I'm hoping someone can help reassure me that this is normal?
I'm 10 days post op from hysterectomy and prolapse repair. My hysterectomy was started vaginally but because they found a large fibroid it had to be continued abdominally. I had to have 2 pints blood transfusion and a stent in the euretha which will stay in temporary for 4 weeks as a precaution from scar tissue damage. I also had a posterior prolapse repair. All in all I am still so sore and feel quite battered, which I kind of do expect as it's early days I know, but what I am not sure about is the pain from the internal stitches down below, a couple of which are quite long and hanging out. Is this normal? They really hurt when I am sitting down and also each time I wipe myself when I go to the toilet. I also get sharp twinges from them from time to time. It's really getting me down now as I'm so sore all round. The consultant did say that they are dissolvable stitches so I'm hoping they will come out soon. I also have a constant tight tummy that never seems to let up even when resting. The abdominal scar is healing well. Is this the same for anyone else?
