Hi. Just an update on my progress. I am 9 weeks post op for a total hysterectomy, A&P repair and a TVT. Had my appt with consultant today. (Well one of his registrars). I told her about being sore around my perineum still. She examined me saying that the area was healing nicely. She then inserted a Speculum. Oh My Goodness!!! It hurt. She said my vault was till abut raw so to continue taking it easy. She said I can not start gentle exercise (I love cycling) so thinking of joining a gym so I can swim and do yoga or Pilates to build up my core and pelvic floor again. Got physio appt on mon so hopefully will get some guidance. I'm still not back to work and I'm not hurrying back. I work in a special needs school so will be active once back but I'm doing phases return when I do return and the summer hols are coming soon too so will have longer to recover.
I've found reading other woman's experiences very informative and has helped me realise that my pains etc are pretty normal to the op.
