Welcome you to Hyster Sisters!! Linda has given you some excellent advice and I hope that you will be sure to read the pre-op and post-op articles that her links will take you to.
Please talk to your doctor about your expected recovery time. I didn't go back to work until 5 1/2 weeks post-op, and even that was a little bit too soon. A hysterectomy is major surgery, and you've got only one chance to heal properly. I know you don't want to jeopardize your future good health by doing too much too soon.
I noticed that this is your first Hyster Sister post, too, and want to welcome you, also. (Please go back into your control panel and add your surgery date so you'll be on our calendar and will receive a special greeting from HS).
I'm sorry that you are having to have the bladder suspension done again. I wonder if it's possible that it didn't hold because, although you felt great after a couple of weeks, internally things were still healing?
And please be sure to talk to your doctor about pain management. I can honestly say that I was not ever in any pain that wasn't controlled by the pain meds that I had. I had general anesthesia followed by a morphine drip in the hospital, and came home with prescriptions for pain meds, which worked, as long as I took them on time.
I hope you'll find this to be true for you this time.
I also can't emphasize too often or too strongly how important it is to allow our bodies time to heal. I wish you both the very best, and encourage you to continue to read, research and post any questions that you may have.
