    Hi Elaine.

    Yes it absolutely is totally normal at this stage in your recovery.

    It's major surgery, and can take up to a year to completely recover.

    The prolapse on it's own is a big op to get over, and what with swelling, stitches, inabiliry to sit for long and general tiredness, takes it's toll.

    You still have swelling which will probably bother you more over the next few weeks, it's all normal.

    I had the same op plus ovary and tube removed last year, and at 13 days felt awful, bowel movements were a big problem, and you can't do much apart from rest.

    So take it easy, feet up and don't be tempted to do too much, it will get better, just takes time, and can be very emotional at times.x.

      Honestly, it took months, a year later and still not right, but my repair failed so not a good person to ask.

      I'm having problems with the nerve that supplies that area, but if you are careful you should be ok, but really does take time, no lifting, pulling,squatting to lift.

      It's not going to be Easy, get the older children to help with washing cleaning etc.

      I knew it had failed a few weeks after it was done.

      The bulge was back but lower down, I had awful bowel problems, think my system is not working properly and seeing a colorectal dr now. Going for ct and ctc scan next week, then endoscopy and sigmoidoscopy next month. But pretty sure it failed due to straining to go to loo. Was taking softeners, and fibre but still having problems. Taking laxido now and it's a lot better.

      No I won't have it done again, there's a higher failure risk with the second one.

      I did everything right, but still failed, that doesn't mean yours will, just it's so important to put yourself first and don't overdo it.

      Hello everyone 

      I keep losing my posts, I am 9 days post op. Pain around lower back in my sacrum area is chronic. I keep changing positions. 

      I had uterus lift, did t need vague al wall repair in the end I'm so lucky, I'm in a lot of pain but it's still better than having the prolapse bladder. Xx
