Surgery for prolapse uterus

Postby pollyward69 on Sat Mar 31, 2018 9:15 pm

I had a laparoscopic hysterepexy and vaginal repair almost 3 weeks ago.
The operation is to repair a prolapse uterus, and involves inserting a mesh underneath the uterus to keep it in place.
I’m still in a lot of pain, and feel so utterly wiped out, and tho this isn’t totally unexpected I thought I’d feel more comfortable by now.
I was signed off work for just 6 weeks which is the minimum period of time for the two procedures I had, and I also have back pain from scoliosis, I’m tired from an under active thyroid, I’m going thru the menopause and I’m some carer of two kids including one with severe autism so Home is not the relaxing environment you’d hope for in this situation.
My job is also hands on, supporting adults with autism in the community.
Just wondered if anyone else has had similar experience.
