Im now in 9th week post op posterial prolapse surgery and as yet haven't had any relief from discomfort and pain when sitting on anything actually feels like op hasn't worked but had check up and doc said all is well but it doesn't feel that way.  Tried all sorts of pain relief and other than drugging myself out nothing seems to work does anybody have any advice or has same problem.  I don't like taking pills all the time so am very frustrated .

      Sorry to hear your having that discomfort again.  Unfortunately I'm still feeling it too I have an appointment with specialist on Wednesday and am looking forward to it just to make sure alls ok have to admit it certainly doesn't feel like it is.  It's good to have this site to support us.  I've started taking pain relief again unfortunately, but I'm finding it hard to get through the day without it.  I feel a bit like a woos when reading some of the comments on how well others are doing and a bit embarrassed but can't help the way we feel.  Hoping you feel better soon.

    I'm 55 and had anterior and posterior wall repair 12 days ago, the only after care advice I was given was avoid lifting and follow physio advice, which was just a talk thought pelvic floor excerises, so I returned home with very little info on what to do or not to do or what to expect.

    luckliy I found this site and am piecing together what I should be doing or to be exact what I should not be doing, I found I am tired most of the time and have a dull ache in my stomach with does get me down, thankfully I have a wonderful hustand was is doing his best for me once he gets home from work. I'm still unsure as to what I should be doing everyday to help my recovery can anyone give a bit of advice on this please, as I really don't won't to be doing the wrong things and ending up back where I started.

    hope you don't mind me jumping into this discussion.

      I know exactly how your feeling as your story is mine to a tee!  Nothing was told to me except the heavy lifting part and even then I didn't know how much is too much until I joined this site.  It's a bit disgusting that we've been givin no info or advice on what to do or not to do.  When I went back for my 6 weekly check I asked her if there were any restrictions on activity and she said absolutely not just return back to normal life which I did and fell into a real hole.  I've ended up back on meds and not doing too much my husband is really helpful and won't let me do much work. Don't understand why there are so many different attitudes to the same operation, is it different countries or what? Very confusing.  Hope you feel well soon
