Just over 3 weeks post op and the good news is I have gently managed to find my pelvic floor!

Now obviously I am going to take this slowly, as with everything post surgery, but for the longer term is there anywhere I can find good advice on exactly how I should be doing pelvic floor exercises. I am determined to make these a regimented part of my life now but want to make sure I am doing them properly! Or is there no properly??

      I wasn't told anything so went on Matrons suggestion of 2-3 weeks. I have only done them very very gently with no pain / bleeding / change of any sort so I think all is ok.

      Obviously if you were told otherwise stick to that.

    Hi all,

    Just a note to say I have added a pinned discussion to the group here

    https://patient.info/forums/discuss/useful-resources-511474 so it will always be at the top of the group homepage. I have included links to the squeezy app and the Australian website mentioned in this thread. As we cannot allow repeated posting of links to sites like the exercise one if you want to guide users to it you can tell them to go to the link above. Posting this link means the post won't go for moderation as it is an inhouse link. As it says on the discussion, if anyone has any suggested resources to add please PM me rather than filling the discussion with replies.

    Regards,

    Alan
