Pelvic Floor pressure/feels like it is going to fall out

I had daVinci 1/12. Everything has been great. Yesterday and today I have had no pain, but pressure in my pelvic floor area and my vajayjay feels like it wants to fall out. I have not had sex yet and have been doing keegels off and on since surgery.
Normal?
Suggestions?

TMI--- I feel like I want to run to the bathroom "stuff" it back in and do the longest keegel of my life.

I had vaginal pressure for the first 4 weeks post-op. It was very uncomfortable and would get worse when I overdid it. At week 5 it went away. If it is as bad as you say you should call your doctor. I hope you feel better....

I am waiting for them to open to call now. It is not too bad, but I have a high tolerance. Thanks.

Re: Pelvic Floor pressure/feels like it is going to fall out

Hello, a couple months after my dvH,
I felt some pressure. Especially with a full bowel and /or bladder. It took a few months before every thing seem to adjust to their new positions. What you are experiencing could be a normal part of the healing process,but if I were you I would check with the Dr. that did your sx to make sure it is not a bladder or vaginal prolapse.
Let us know what you find out. Hope you feel better real soon!

Re: Pelvic Floor pressure/feels like it is going to fall out

Called the doc. and had to go in for a quick check. I have a VERY MILD prolapse from lifting too much too soon. I have a few things to do and am VERY restricted on lifting anything. I go back next week. He said I caught it early and am lucky. WHEW glad I listened to my body. I will be following his exact instructions from now on as I do not want to deal with a prolapse.

Re: Pelvic Floor pressure/feels like it is going to fall out

THis is how I am feeling at 5 weeks........i really haven't done alot of physical activity but have been at hospital long housr with my Dad as he had a heat attack. I feel so whimpish because my Surgeon cleared me at 2 weeks to do anything I wanted including lifting furniture.. I\most days I would rate my pain a 10 and I am very tolerant of pain

What is the risk of prolapse for women who had the davinci?

Re: Pelvic Floor pressure/feels like it is going to fall out

I feel this same downward pressure too, and I just assumed it was part of the healing process. My doctor has me limited to lifting no more than 15 pounds for the first 6 weeks post-op. I have followed her recommendation, so I don't think what I am feeling is abnormal.

Sorry about your Dad, Peddlerqueen. The long hours at the hospital have got to be so difficult for you.

Maybe you need to contact your doctor about your pain. It seems unusual for you to be in such intense pain from the lap. surgery this far out from your surgery date. I am no expert here, but ....maybe it wouldn't hurt to be safe.
