Life after a sacrocolpopexy

Greetings and Salutations,

I am a 60 year old who seventeen years ago had an abnominal hysterecomy, the surgeon removed all of my reproductive organs, including my cervix, he kept the least of my cystic ovaries in tact for estrogen production. Needless to say everything went south, literally, I had a pelvic / vaginal vault prolapse which led to a sacrocolpopexy and cystoscopy, on August 3rd, which is a common procedure for this problem.

My ob-gyn put me on vaginal premarin to toughen my walls, prior to the surgery and I am to continue using it after the surgery, but the side effects are confusing to me and I do have questions concerning them.

Also, major lifestyle changes are in my forcast; so heavy lifting is out, backpacking in the mountains, running around like mad woman and jumping up and down is out, so no jogging, aerobics etc. I'm basically at my witts end trying to figure out what I can do, when I can do it and how much I can do when I am allowed / released. Being the type of person that I am, I need to know the perimeters well in advance so that I can prepare for them and not go beyond them to the point of hurting myself, again..Trust me when I say this, I NEVER want to experience another prolapse and have to go through this for a second time...lol.

My hopes and expectations are that the forums here can help me fill in the blanks by giving me the golden gems that will help me make sense of all of this. The internet just isn't helping..but what an education I am getting.

Thanking all of you kind women in advance.
