Anyone have TVH with rectocele and cystocele repair?

Hi ladies! Did any of you have all three at the same time? I'm just wondering if that's going to have a huge affect on my surgery time and also my recovery. I have to worry about vagina healing along with urinating....and, of course, BMs. Never thought I would have to worry about this stuff...especially at the same time. Kind of throwing myself a Pitt party

Hi Borgster - I had the same op 10 weeks ago and have never felt better. Everyone is different and my uterus was larger than expected and I also lost a lot of blood so I was in surgery for over 4 hours. I am in the UK so was automatically signed off from work for 6 weeks, with no driving and 'nothing in the vagina for 6 week'. At my 6 week check-up, I had to have silver nitrate internally and had to wait a further 2 weeks but overall I haven't experienced many issues. I have been back to work part-time for 2 weeks now. Hope this helps but let me know if I can help in any way.

Hi Both - You will both be fine when you get to the other side and all the sisters on this site will be waiting to support you both.

Make a list of all the questions you want to ask but, to be honest, the surgery wasn't as bad as I anticipated and you'll soon be recovering and looking forward to the future. Remember to rest and listen to your bodies, drink water and let yourselves be pampered.

We're all routing for you.

Hugs

Sue

Borgster: I am having the same repairs done on the 29th and my fears are the same! I having enough problems having a BM now without any other issues cropping up (sorry for the TMI). I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best.

Re: Anyone have TVH with rectocele and cystocele repair?

I had a TVH, with cystocele, rectocele repair, bladder sling, and vag suspension
4 weeks ago and am doing pretty well! I did start getting my bowels pretty regular pre surgery by taking physillium husk every night for about 2 weeks before, though I was not asked to do a bowel prep pre surgery. Constipation and gas are really the hardest part of recovery, so be prepared...I didn't poop for 6 days post op and was in major pain that finally resulted in an enema. I would start taking Miralax and colace immediately after surgery, if I could have any hindsight suggestions...Milk of Mag made me super crampy and the despite all the prunes, fiber and other remedies, it was rough for a week or so...
other than that, just take it easy, rest, walk when you can, drink lots of fluids and enjoy the down time!
I had major prolapse and even though I am still healing and swollen, I can tell that I do feel better...it doesn't feel like everything is falling! My incontinence issue is much better, though I am reserving all final judgement until I am fully healed. I am 42 and have 3 kids ages 7, 4, and 2 1/2 and thus, the prolapse

It is hard to remember not to lift and get as much as help as possible with food, doing dishes, cleaning, kids, etc. so you can just rest and heal.

Best of luck!

Re: Anyone have TVH with rectocele and cystocele repair?

I am scheduled for the same procedures plus a sling. The TVH has been scheduled for a few weeks but found out today I will have the other procedures done at the same time. It makes sense to get it all taken care of in one shot but I am feeling a little overwhelmed. Suddenly I can empathize with Humpty Dumpty and I'm only 40 years old. Hopefully my doctor will be able to get me tacked back together so I can go another 40.

Childbirth is sure tuff on the body but I wouldn't change a thing if I had to do it all over again. I am so grateful for both of my 8 1/2 lb. babies which are now 16 and 10 years old. Both are beautiful, strong and healthy.

Best wishes for a safe and successful surgery for you all.
