I'm 13 weeks post op after Rectocele repair ( 2nd time ) and perinioplasty .
I had 8 weeks of Antibiotibs on and off because whatever I did my perineum just would not heal . It has now healed but not as it should have done .
I've had the flu for ten days and assumed the soreness again was down to coughing and doing more . However I've just found out that the urine sample they took before I was discharged home was positive for the infection GBS . The treatment was a course of one of 3 antibiotics .....none of which was the antibiotic I kept taking .
I feel really cheated as no one informed told me I had this infection and had I known and received the correct Antibiotibs I may not have had the awful 8 weeks and poor healing that I had . I'm still sore and tingly today so am going to send another swab and urine sample to see if the infection is still there .
Has anyone had GBS and if so could it be what caused my delayed healing ?
Also any tips on managing my pelvic floor with a dreadful cough ? I've had it from about 11 weeks and am hoping the internal stiching is strong enough to stand up to it , but on occasion I've had that coughing bout that literally makes you sick and god knows if I've damaged my repair .
Sorry it's so long I'm just a bit very up if the whole thing .
