I had a vaginal hysterectomy, sacrospinous fixation, anterior and posterior repair on May 4th 2017. Prior to the operation I did have stress incontinence and leaking especially in certain sports, particularly horse riding! I'm 58 years old, post menopausal and am reasonably fit, I put off having surgery for years but once I plucked up the courage to speak to my GP was referred to a wonderful consultant who I have total faith in. I was told the surgery went well and am amazed at how little pain I've had, I'm trying to rest and be careful not to lift, I am walking everyday which is great, I'm missing my regular activities and am so frustrated that I can't garden! I'd happily be outside all day. ??Despite feeling little pain I'm concerned about a couple of things, I still seem to have loads of stitches, especially on the posterior repair, how long should these take to dissolve? I'm also really upset that I'm still leaking, I feel I'm not emptying my bladder fully and then when I walk and just have a slight jolt I feel the leak!
Has anyone had similar problems? I hope I'm just being impatient, three weeks and four days is very early in my recovery.
