Usually, the two week check does not involve a a vaginal exam. It depends on your DR. Mine peeked, but only used her eyes and fingers. She was concerned most about my repair. I don't think most even do that!
They will ask how you are doing, and address any questions and concerns you may have.
My DR said all I should be up for was to go to the bathroom, walk around a bit, every hour or so when I was awake, to keep the blood circulating and to wake up the bowels. I was told "NO work of any kind, basically bedrest."
I learned at this website that sitting is an activity and puts pressure on the healing tissues, no matter which way the surgery was done.. I think sitting may be particularly uncomfortable because you may be bruised "down there.". Sitting will add to the soreness both ways, in that event!
I spent most of my time laying almost flat for the first few weeks. I put a pillow on my tummy, and very carefully propped my book on it. On the days when I was not "up to" reading, I watched TV. by putting pillows to gently prop me up so I could see. Depending on what is comfortable for you, put pillows everywhere! Try one under your knees when on your back; one behind your back, one between your knees, and a small one under your tummy for support when on your side. I got some of my exercise by bringing the pillows one at a time from the room I slept in to the room with the TV in it. Couldn't carry them all at the same time!
