Anterior Posterior Repair

I had a sling and A/P repair six weeks ago and am still healing. The recovery has taken longer than I ever imagined! Most of my soreness is pretty much gone now and I go back for my follow-up in two more weeks. I remember from past surgery that the surgery sight was kind of "knotty" until it healed, and have noticed that the vaginal incisions are a bit "knotty" as well, and I wondered if anyone has had this done that can tell me how long it takes to be "normal" again. I haven't dared even TRY to have IC yet - how long is it usually before you were comfortable enough to attempt?

Not sure what you mean by "knotty incisions"? Do you mean stitches in the vagina?

It's where the stitches were and I would guess where it's not totally healed and is a little hard in places.

You probably shouldnt be investigating the surgical site--not really sure how you can actually, since its all internal. Either way, investigating could introduce bacteria into the unhealed tissues thus causing an infection. Let the Dr do the investigating--any and all questions you may have can be answered at your post-op exam.
Re: intercourse--this will have to be answered by your Dr.
