Hi group, I am two weeks and two days out from my rectocele, cystocele repairs. I opted to have it done, my rectocele was a 2 nd degree and I was having to push to get stool out, I also have diverticulosis and wondering which came first? Anywho I opted for no mesh or sling just surgical repair I figure if it fails then I still have the sling option My first recommendation is have a GYN or Urologist do the repairs, someone who does them a lot! Secondly,in the recovery room get an ice bag on it!! 24 hours at least stay with pain meds( Norco) Stool softeners, bedrest and ice bags! This helps so much I only had to take the pain meds three days. I took my Packing out end of day two(Just get ahold of it and pull gently about 12-16 inches will come out) It's useless then anyways as it will be soaked. I had light bleeding and still having some beige drainage now The stitches I can feel if I squat to pick something up as there is less swelling after first week and stitches are felt more They are dissolved in a couple weeks. At two weeks my doctor told me to start using an estrogen cream to further bring it back together This is kinda messy too so I don't plan on using it too long Ihad a hot flash from it too Im in my 60s so haven't had estrogen circulating for awhile.Anyways that's about it Take it easy, get help with kids and don't do much!!!
