I am really appreciating being able to share experiences on this site, as I am slightly neurotic about my recovery. I am 3 weeks post surgery and at the weekend developed a terrible cough. Yesterday I went to see the GP and have been given antibiotics for a possible infection and also a cough suppresant syrup, although it hasn't stopped me coughing entirely.
Yesterday I had a really bad coughing fit which I tried to suppress but couldn't. Now this morning I have noticed things don't feel as tight as they did and I am unable to get much response from my pelvic floor muscles. I am squeezing but nothing moves . I feel so upset as I am worried something vital has come undone.
Has anyone experienced a deterioration in their pelvic floor strength during recovery?
