I'm 34. V.bad forceps delivery. 3 years ago. Resulted in damage down there...
Begged for surgery. What was I thinking? I wasn't even that bad... mild recotocele, moderate cystocele and apparently prominent suburethal cushion (does anyone even know what that means?) I'll ask my gyno at my 8 week post op c/up.
Now I'm 11 days post op and just feel so selfish and stupid for having it done. It was totally bearable and Know feel i should have waited until it got bad(der)
I've got a 2.5 year old who I can't lift. .. (ever again????) And all I've read is not to ever do this, and not to ever do that ...
I thought after surgery is be able to hit the gym again ... hard. Having issues post birth meant I've spent 0 time in the gym doing what I used to. No weights? No heavy lifting of shopping bags? No walking continuously for 10 hours straight ... ( I love walking challenges, and shopping till I drop...)
- have i screwed myself over?
- am I at higher risk now for a far worse prolapse
- even if I take it easy for a few months will the bladder and bowel really be secure?
- because of the op ... Will the prolapse (if it comes back) be worse?
- have i left myself open to a uterus prolapse now?
I want more kids... gyno said would be fine with c sec. She even said I could lift my 2.5.year old after a few weeks. She's so blase about it all... she makes me feel confident in her she's amazing...but is she for real?
Just to share also, post op I've had absoluetly ZERO pain! Stupidly went down to the hospital vending machine to get a cold drink a few hours after surgery ... but felt and feel completely fine! Didn't hurt and doesn't hurt a bit...
Please help. Has anyone here had it done around my age just for extra confidence, to fix what shouldnt have happened in the first place. Am I doomed
I'll do my pf exercises and loose weight... but going back to work and have a 2 hour round walking trip carrying a heavy laptop bag most days and bearly get a seat on the commute.
Even having to ask my kids nursery to lift and pack the buggy away for me for the next few months. Hoping they say yes. I'm going to tell them it was a pelvic operation...otherwise tmi
