Three week post op - bowels better but peeing very urgent !

Three weeks post op (April 12th), feeling almost like me. Driving to the top of my steep road and walking my dog for around 20 minutes each day. Perineum better after hideous posterior repair. Laparoscope incisions brilliant and tummy only a little swollen but feel podgy. Bowels finally getting better but still use Movicol (stool softener) daily. Peeing a little better but when I have to go I have to go. Hope that gets better as colposuspension and colpopexy settle and heal. Wondering if need a bit of estrogen because although post menopause getting a few hot moments following BSO along with my hysterectomy. Still feeling tired but less woolly headed. Doing pelvic floor exercises and trying to gradually increase my exercise tolerance. Listening to my body. I encourage every one to look forward. First two weeks were hard work but will be worth it after many years of prolapse. Hystersisters has been wonderful and answered so many questions no-one else could have honestly helped me with. thank you everyone and heal well. X

Re: Three week post op - bowels better but peeing very urgent !


Very happy that you are recovering so well. It sounds like you are following your Dr's advice and it is paying off

Continue to listen to your body, and I wish you a continued good recovery!

Regarding the estorgen, hot flashes are caused by changes in Estrogen levels, and during this time, while your body is using up it's stored supply, it is very common to experience these.

This is an excellent time for you to start looking through our Menopause and Hormones Articles list to empower yourself to be able to talk with your Dr about your HRT choices.

Keep us posted and let us know if we can help you find information.
