I'm back on the forum after a break of 4 mths. You were all so helpful when I had my VH and Anterior Repair last April and I'm after some advice regarding Posterior Repair.
I had my 6 mth check with my surgeon today and as I suspected I need further surgery for the rectocele - grade 2/3. I really wish it had been done in April with the cystocele repair but no use crying over that now.
Can anyone tell me how the posterior repair (the operation /recovery /pain/intercourse etc.) compares to the anterior repair. I found it relatively pain free last time and intercourse was fine after 6 weeks. But I've heard that posterior is more painful.
Also has anyone had the SSF stitch as well. I have to sign the consent form for that too just in case I need it.
Thank you in advance.
