What to ask at Surgeon #1 at Pre-op for my TOT Sling & Anterior repair? Help!

I am having a TVH with TOT sling and anterior repair in 3weeks. (Phew...wiping the sweat of my brow ) THIS Thursday I will have my first of 3 Pre-op appointments (2 surgeons and hospital)

I have all my questions ready (thanks to Hystersisters checklist!!) for my GYN that is doing my TVH at my 2nd Pre-op appointment NEXT Thurdsay.

But the 2nd surgeon, URO/GYN is doing my bladder sling and anterior repair after my uterus is removed...as I understand and didn't really dawn on me till right now I have no clue of what to ask her about that portion of the surgery. The only thing I can think of is weight restrictions?

Any one have any advise would be tremendously helpful!!

With the repairs I had done, which were several, I have a lot of restrictions.
I'm only a little over two weeks out, and I am supposed to wait until week 12 to resume all activities. I think sex is the only one I am cleared for at week 6. I'm not sure if it is because of my prolapse or the repairs, but I'm not supposed to lift anything more than 5 pounds, no housework like vacuuming because of the pulling and pushing, or carring laundry, and not to be on my feet for very long for 3 months. Anyway, I would say to ask about weight restrictions, exercise, sex, housework.

Thank you so much!!! Any info helps me feel more prepared.

I am getting really nervous. As of tomorrow it will be like a blink with all the Dr's pre-ops during the next couple of weeks. I actually didn't know I needed anterior repair until I saw my FMLA paperwork so I am eager to talk to her.

I am very pleased with the results of the LAVH and TOT I had in March. A couple of questions I wish I had asked are, one explain how the TOT is done I was surprised where the incisions are, two ask the Urologist when he/she is going to arrive in the OR my Urologist was late for his part of my surgery.
Best wishes
