HI. I've read through as many posts as i could to piece together answers but coming up a bit short.
Had TvT-O urethra sling and posterior repair surgery 5.5 weeks ago. Have had huge regrets as my little is 4 and i would carry him daily. Was also active and independent physically. Lifted what i wanted anytime. Only did the surgery to fix slight leaking.
I"m back at work full time as i have a sitting job and trying to avoid lifting over 10 pounds. No one mentioned bending so have been picking up toys and unloading washer and making meals since week four.
Wondering two things 1. Do these symptoms go away and when - dribbling leakage when standing up or bending - overactive / frequent bladder - pelvic floor pressure when standing too long - pinching or cramp like twinges occassionally in abdomen and butt cheek.
- Can one go back to normal lifting and exercise? What if I decide to backpack through EUROPE in my retirement. Some posts make it sound like a physical death sentence. I would take leaking any day if it meant I COULD have kept my life. I did the surgery so i could play volleyball, run and lift my toddler into swings, onto shoulders etc and be pad free at the same time.
PLEASE tell me people saw these symptoms go away and they resumed active lives that allowed them to garden, carry suitcases, lift children etc. within a year.
