Hi everyone and thank you all for your great support. I had my i
1st post op examine today. Spec insisted on checkiing despite me advsiing him how sore I still was down there , He advised that I had a very distrught perinieum before my op which was the worst he had ever seen. The rectocelle was worst than he thought but that had now been fixed by the surgery. Becasue of the large amount of scar tissue and very thin skin in the perineum area he needed to do an internal and that was very painful and the spec advised that I wasn't healing as he would like in that area and it was possibly due to the pre op perineum damage which was much worst once they got me to sleep than he had noted previously. Only some of the scar tissue was able to be removed and hence what was left the old scar is still giving me trouble. I was gutted after all that and sex will stil be painful. He had a good rumage around internaly and put me back on oestrogen cream and advise no sex for 8-10 weeks and only after I could endure a dilo or kegal aid comfortably by myself and then only with plenty of lub. To be honest I am really down and scarred of the thought of sex and even trying with a dilo etc, But the main reason for this post is that after the internal examine i am in constant pain in that area and more particularly my bottom which is throbbing and painful and feels so sorejust like it did when I first came on, so back on icepacks and painkillers. Is this normal? Surely he can't have pulled some sticthes or something. Anyone else have this after their check up and if so how quickly until the throbbing pain stopped. I had to return to work after the examine and sit on my bottom (desk job) for rest of day. Back at work now and any advise so welcome. The panadol isn't actually relieving the pain and it is really aching. Taking some neurphen plus and going to bed. Hopefully it will settle. Trying to stay positive but hard. Spec said if I had been older if he would have removed all scar tissue and just sewn me up but thought I was too young to give up on sex- bless him. I was aske dif I would be involved in some research he was doing to find out birthing experiences of his patients and if that related to the prolapses and severity of the prolapses and damaged periineum. My answers further confimred what his papers are showing and that was that vaginal births with forceps delivery had greater prolapses and more damaged perinuem than cut and tears alone and it was significantly more. He hopes to present his findings once he has done more surveys and hopes that forceps will be not used ever again. Thought you might be interested in that Matron. Sorry everyone for long post .
