It will be 4 weeks after surgery on Nov. 18th. Last check up I was sent home with external catheters and not to use them more than 3 times a day. I have only used them 2 times and am not using them now. I was told that I was off restrictions, too. So I have been doing what ever I need to do. Yesterday, I raked leaves and pine needles. I also shoveled some gravel into a wheel barrow. It was about half full and it was pretty heavy. I had a long way to take it and I stopped and rested once before finishing. Later that night I was pretty sore and I was taking care of hygiene and seeing if I was still sore. I felt something unusual and it was 2 strings. One on the right and the other on the left just inside the vagina. I felt further and I could feel stitches and I think the strings are attached there. Has anyone had this happen to them? I hope I didn't mess anything up by lifting a heavy load. Sorry to be so graphic, but that is the only way a know how to explain it. The muscles in that area are sore from the work I did, I guess. Thanks, Shari
