pain after cystocele repair

Hi all,
I had a TVH 6/2003 & then a cystocele/rectocele repair April 26. I am still having pain, especially when standing & walking and was wondering if other sisters have had the same. The posterior repair I can't feel at all but the anterior side is very uncomfortable unless I am lying down. Would appreciate any thoughts.

pain after cystocele repair

Hi not sitting, I'm with you. I had a TVH with A&P repairs on 4-6-04 and I am still hurting also. It hurts to walk and sit. Very painful. I have heard it gets better. We can only hope.

Thanks, Poofy
I was starting to think that maybe the repair didn't work & that I was back to square one! Don't usually give up hope easily but these are tough times!

pain after cystocele repair

Hi not sitting....I had my op on the same day as you and am feeling exactly the same as you now.

I am pretty convinced this is part of the healing process and the swelling and the stitches coming out etc. I have my check up next Tuesday so will know for sure then.

I know exactly what you mean!

Healing takes time - just remember that everything is swollen. It took me a while to sit right. I was thrilled the first time I could sit through a movie! I had trouble sitting for about 2 months after surgery.

I hate to say it but after 9 or so months it still bothers me to sit too long (it feels as thought there is no cush on the tush).

Hi pamdf.

I am sitting on one cheek. You are so right. It feels like there is no meat left down there and I am sitting on bones. When I go back to work I have a sitting job so "ouch".

Question - pain after cystocele repair pain after cystocele repair

I am hope by the time I have posted this, you are feeling much better.

I am wondering about having this surgery. I don't know if fixing the cystocele and rectocele is better or worse than just dealing with them as they are now.

I will keep reading.....

Take care now.

Hi Snoopy1,

My advice would be you do all the research you can. Find out what grade your cystocele or rectocele is. Get all the references you can for a good doctor. I have heard women say they couldn't even tell anything was done. And others like me, wish they have left things the way they were. Do all the research.

I am 10 weeks post-op and still not feeling right.

What kind of symptoms are you having?

pain after cystocele repair

Oh, you poor sisters! I am LIW and this does not sound so good.
I have had 2 opinions confirming: prolapsed uterus, cystocele and rectocele. #1 is ob/gyn planning TVH -rated it moc=derate to severe, #2 is gyn specialist planning Lap (leaving cervix) rating the level +3 on a scale of +3. I am now seeking more of a specialist. I would like to find a urogynocologist or a gynocologist partnered with a urologist.
I am 37 and not overweight, don't know why I am in this shape. I believe I have been like this for 2 years, since the birth of my second child.
So, I want to know what kind of doctor did your repair surgery. I wonder if that matters on your recovery... there are so many factors to recovery, it is hard to know.
