I am 36 years old and 2 weeks post-op for a cystocele (anterior) prolapsed bladder repair harvesting my own faschia. I had quite a bit of pain the 1st 2 days after surgery and mainly just very sore up to a week. After that able to walk around normal (no longer like I rode a horse the entire day prior). The second week felt tons better, finally able to turn okay during sleep without pain. I did have one or 2 days where I felt super achy and didn't want to do much but lay on the couch. Then about 3 days ago I felt nothing like I didn't even have the surgery. I just hung around the house and did minimal things. However, yesterday and today I have felt pain just over where my pelvic bone sticks out on my right side. Almost similar to if you've ever had acute gas pains. It doesn't bother me too much if I am laying down, but if I move my right leg it really hurts there. Almost as if I've strained my groin but I feel the pain directly above. Going on day two of this pain I can feel it in my back on my right side as well. No burning sensation when peeing so I don't think it is a bladder infection and no fever. Anyone else experience this type of pain? Is it normal to feel better every day and then suddenly feel terrible even if you didn't overdo it the days prior? Also, how long before this swelling goes down? I feel like when I'm looking down it looks as if I am wearing a mans baseball cup, only it's made of my own skin!!! Any advice of direction would be great. Thanks!
