Five months since Anterior prolapse repair and all is well with regards to the prolapse repair. Some of you may remember that I had nearly three months of vulva tenderness and discomfort which turned out to be caused by nerve damage during surgery. It took around 12 weeks for them to start healing. I saw a specialist dermatologist on Thursday who confirmed everything for me and said that even the Gynae registrars don't know much about the problem.

I go back to hospital on Monday for a Hysteroscopy as have post menopausal bleeding now and they think it is down to polyps and want to remove them in the clinic.

    There's a lot of information on Hysteroscopy on this website barbara which I'm sure you've read. Just to remind any ladies who have recently had or are about to have prolapse surgery nerve damage is extremely rare I would hate anyone to think it happens regularly. Hope everything goes well for you on Monday.

    Hi Barbara I'm 6 months post op and like u have nerve damage from op. Were u advised how long it takes to heal if indeed at all. My pain is around my bladder area. I had a second opinion with a private consultant this week and he thinks my present pain is caused by scar tissue. I'm due to have this sorted asap. Good luck with ur recovery. X
