    I suppose it depends on what you have had done, Have you had an operation for prolapse repairs ?

      Wow you had a lot done all in one go like me, although instead of hysterectomy I had a hysteropexy. I have got to have one in the future mainly because I have a large womb but my surgeon said at 38 I'm to young to have it done now as it would likely cause more prolapses. Unlike you only though I only have one child & I've found that hard. It's so frustrating not being able to do things but please try not to rush, I know it's easier said than done. I have my check up tomorrow & have written a list of questions to ask, because I didn't ask enough or get told enough before & after my operation. I've been very lucky that I've had a a fantastic surgeon & the hospital was really good. Could you ask your doctors/hospital about pushing the buggy? I would honestly say the weight would be to much for you until after the six weeks. Good luck with your recovery I hope you get the answers you need.

      I keep reading so much conflicting advice on hysterectomy and it causing more prolapses if this is this case I would have nEver done it

      I'm only 35 but because I have 4 children it was suggested plus the heavy bleeding and thickening womb lining, I really hope it doesn't cause more prolapses

      I guessed you were young as you have young children. I'm so sorry I didn't mean to panic you, I'm sure your consultant knows what they're doing. You're issues & prolapses must've meant the best option was a hysterectomy straight away. My auntie had a hysterectomy at a similar age but years ago & whilst she developed a bladder prolapse recently she hasn't had any other issues. Try not to worry x

      I had a hysterectomy at 36 I've had prolapse surgery at 52 but this was caused by lack of hormones not given when I started the menopause so try not too worry about what might not even happen 😀

      How are you feeling after all those repairs? and you have a 2 year old to race around after?

      Hopefully the other girls will be in touch with advice,

      ​Pretty much I think you wouldnt be wise to push a push chair for about 6 weeks

      I think one of the saddest things about these ops that we have had is the rather large failure rates, Im not trying to be dramatic but you really need to let your body heal as you have had major surgery. I was told it takes 12 to 18 months to come right and even then its no heavy lifting from now on. Heavy lifting apparently is anything over 5 kgs

      ​You are so early on in your recovery at only 11 days, I hope you have lots of support and get the opportunity to rest and recover, warm regards Kath

      I feel pretty good ATM this is the first day on my own with my children and I'm on strict orders not to do nothing but I would like to start going out and a two year old with no pushchair is asking for trouble I definitely know I can't run.

      I'm not planning on letting my op fail as I will not be having this done again far to much pain.

      I am lucky the my husband is only 2 minutes away and the girls are so good .

      Really pleased to hear you are feeling well, I guess at the end of the day your body will let you know if you over do it. How very hard to be recovering from all you have gone thru with a couple of little people to run around after. Im hoping Matron will see your post and comment. Do you mind me asking what country you live in. Im from New Zealand the majority of the other ladies ( I think) are from the UK

      I'm from the uk

      I think if I had of been better informed I would have put surgery off until they were older I have four children but two are older so have helped a lot my teenage daughter has hoovered and put a wash on for me before she went to school, which is lovely but makes me feel guilty as I should have waited

      What a good girl she is, and its lucky your hubby is close by if you need him

      ​I had rectocele​, anterior and perineum​ repairs back in Sept so Im now over the worst part of it but still recovering. I was really surprised at how much time it took me to come right and never realised until after my op the time needed to rest and recover. You will probably tire easy so be kind to yourself and dont feel guilty about having the op as you obviously needed to have it done

      I'm sure I've also had perineum repaired too and stitched from the inside and one is very long and keeps scratching me ouch

      With all the repairs I've had I'm not sure if I have any pain from the hysterectomy?

      Today we are having a DVD day so should get lots of rest
