Hi at week 6 of a&p prolapse repair, at week 4 I had a bad sickness and diarrhea bug, resulting in a lot of pain from my repairs also noticed a rather large stitch had come away, since then I've got the bulge back in-between my back passage and front ,has anyone else had this problem i feel like I've got a small prolapse back also at times after emptying my bowels I'm having to push part of my back passage back in

    Hello Melons please don't worry a stitch coming away at 4 weeks is perfectly normal and so is the bulge. It's normal swelling after the surgery.

    Having s & d at 4 weeks post op must have been horrible for you! Hope you keep well for the rest of your recovery. Good idea to see consultant sooner & get it checked out. Good luck.

      I'm like you I'm a strong person but the pain from this has reduced me to tears ,I'm on strong painkillers as at the moment there's no let you ,I feel that I'm taking 1 step forward and 2 back , I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I will feel like a New Women soon , if I walk for longer than 10 mins I feel like I want to hold it up do you get that, I do feel that more information is needed post op instead of a little booklet saying what you should be doing at certain weeks cos I'm nothing like the booklet lol

      I know 6 weeks probably feels like a long time but it's still early days. You will soon feel stronger. Make a note of any questions for the doctor in case you forget (my mind always goes blank as soon as I walk in the door!) Let us know how you get on. X

      Good point Imnotadoctor. About a year ago I put together a list of questions that women could ask at their appointment. Once I started I had so many that I thought the poor consultant would have lost the will to live 😂. Being on this forum made me realise just how difficult it was walking into that consulting room and your mouth goes dry then you forget everything you wanted to ask.
