six week post check up

Posted , 5 users are following.

I've just had my six week check up today. Please I need some advise the consultant asked to examine me which of course I agreed. All he did was insert the tip of his fingervabout an inch into my opening and asked me to squeeze and said everything is healing well. I had an anteria and posture repair without mesh. Is this the norm or am I suppose to be examine to ensure all is in place and no infections etc. I am so upset been discharged on this advise as well .

    At my six week check,mthe consultant put something metal quite a way in, and then felt all the way round with his finger, and asked me to cough.

    Really uncomfortable, still sore round perineum.

      Yes, he had a good look with the speculum, then took it out, and felt all round.

      I was quite startled, didn't expect that, I think I thought he'd be more cautious, but they know what they are doing.

      I plucked up courage to have a feel around, and it does feel really lumpy, and is still a bit swollen at the back of my perineum, just over seven weeks now.

      It does seem to be taking it's time to heal.

      I have atrophy and was put onto oestrogen gel after cystoscopy, only about three months ago so don't know if it's kicking in yet, but don't feel as dry.

      Hopefully my gp will let me stay on it and my tissues will be strengthened, I don't think it has the same risks as HRT, which I took for around 15 years.
