hi there. Am just over three weeks post op (16th December). nearly three years ago I had anterior repair which failed (prior to that has hysteroscopy as problems with bleeding etc), and prolapse uterus worsened to grade 3plus. Having put operation off the prolapse ended up impacting on bm, bladder and causing discharge and odour worsening last year.
After much consultation the only viable option (I didn't wish to have hysterectomy at my age) was using mesh to support uterus from outside, and tie it with permanent suture to sacrum. Then a posterior repair was performed. I was advised an open proceedure was best for me. Surgery took around 4 hours do was extensive.
I was discharged 2 days after and was only taking paracetamol or ibuprofen twice a day but nothing now. Sleep still disturbed but bladder seems to be working better (not having to go in night) Too early to tell what else.
Has anyone had similar? Interested in how the stomach scar heals (is like a caesarean) as stomach still numb above scar. I am 42 and not overweigh, but likely eating more atm and started swimming yesterday. Stomach pretty large still. In last 24hrs seem to be getting some clear discharge, pretty sure not wee. Can anyone help by telling me about their recovery? Thanks
