Hallo all you girls.....Isnt it great to get support and advice from fellow women? I am 3 weeks past TVT and posterior repair. Some of you ladies seem to get lots of probs but so far..none at all. Yes,I was expecting to be sore and needing a ring cushion...a good idea to get this before you go in.. for tender bits but apart from that I am really pleased with the outcome of both procedures. Pain immediately after the op was minimal with Morphine and then paracetamol. First 'poo' expect to be a bit painful...you must RELAX and not strain and above all you must use something like FYBOGEL every day to keep the motion soft. I didnt need any painkillers after 1 week. Make sure you have plenty of sanitary towels when you are discharged as you will bleed a bit and then have a brownish disharge which will gradually fade to creamy yellow. Please no Tampons!!!
So many people have told me to take it easy so I reckon allow 100 days and try to improve 1% each day. No lifting or standing long periods. Dont be bamboozled into doing stuff because you feel guilty......look after your body,ladies!
As for the TVT... I pondered this for a long time but i am so glad to get it done. Havent spilled a drop when coughing sneezing etc. Only works for stress incontinence which I had for a long [10 years] time . Expect some blood in your urine at first but this quickly clears. The 2 external stitches are a good indicator of how you are healing internally.
Avoid baths because of the risk of infection but showers are OK.
Hope all this helps those thinking of the ops but a bit scared. Stay positive and you will soon be on the mend.
