Hi Ladies! I am post op 7 weeks now, surgery on 2/22/18. I had total vaginal hysterectomy due to uterus and bladder prolapse with repairs. I am 63 years old and had fairly early menopause at 47 years old. Well, I was bouncing along just fine for nearly 16 years with minimal menopause symptoms then BAM last year over Christmas I developed a bladder prolapse; following in my mother’s shoes somewhat as it happened to her. I followed up this misfortune with my gynecologist and found out my uterus was prolapsing causing my problems. I had not been to my gynecologist in over 5 years. Maybe I would have found out I was headed to this had I gone regularly for my yearly check-ups? Hmmm ...
It’s been a slow recovery back to normalcy but from what I’ve been gleaning from reading here it takes a long time to really get back to normal.
I am fairly active and love to get outside and ride my bike. I can’t imagine getting on it right now. I pray I will be able to soon. The thing that has been bothering me the most since surgery is the itchy rubbing feeling up in my vagina after walking for any length of time and the feeling of heaviness in my pelvic area. My doctor says I had alot of stiches inside. Maybe they are the cause?
If any of you happen to read this and have had similar or same surgery I would love to hear your story and how you are getting along. Speedy and full recovery to all of you, ladies and sisters of hysterectomies!!!
