    It's wonderful to hear that you are doing so well and to know that there's light at the end of a very long tunne.

    Like you I'm a bit of a wuss but i have found that as everyday passes I'm feeling just that little bit better.

      Sorry for delay in answer, I'm 8 weeks post op for A&P repair, I've had the all clear at my post op appointment last week , but still have a row of stitches that haven't yet dissolved and still quite tender down there, more noticeable after I've walked anywhere other than around the house, thinking it could be the stitches rubbing, and that's the bit that's getting me down more than anything else at the moment as it feels like it's 2 steps forward and 1 step back just hoping that by the time I'm due to go back to work in January that feeling would have gone.

      Some sutures do take a while to dissolve and the longer they take the more annoying they become. I'm sure they will have dissolved by the time you return back to work but if they haven't just be a bit more cautious. You shouldn't be lifting anything too heavy anyway until you're 6 months post op but if you're still uncomfortable when you do return be even extra careful.

      Thanks matron, I think we just expect for things to be feeling better at This stage so it makes you feel a bit miserable when you still feel sore, as my consultant said everything looks like it has gone well the only thing I can think of that's still causing the uncomfortable feeling is the remaining stitches. On the whole I feel like things have gone well.

      At 8 weeks I was still sore and didn't return to work until I was 13 weeks post op. My GP wanted me to stay off for longer but I went back on a graduated return over a 4 week period which helped a great deal. If you're full time it's definitely worth considering.

      You're right kay there aren't any medals so be careful and remember for the first few weeks don't plan to do too much after work because you'll be very tired.

    I'm so happy to hear that you are doing so well.  I'm still having problems with mine, but my doctor put me on meds for overactive bladder...It helps some, but still hard to go potty....stay well...
