HiI had my operation on the 21st September, so its been 13 days since op, they did a laprascopic ventral mesh rectopexy, they pulled up the prolapsed bowel, pulled up the vaginal wall, inserted mesh and pulled it all up securing it to the sacram, they also found adhesions from a previous scar, which they tided up the best they could, so a operation that should only take about 2 hours, took nearly 4. I have 4 cuts, one of them in my belly button which had stitches, which were taken out friday, the other 3 have disolveable ones. mptoms they had. I was told I would have D for 14 days, but for the first 3 I was constipated, I was sent home with movicol to keep me loose, so I would not have to strain. I have not control over my bowel and do not know when I need to open my bowels, I hope the sensations will all return when things settle down, also I have pain in my lower back and down the front of abdomin, from belly button down, I would like to know if anyone else has ever had this operation and what did they experience during the recovery, what symptoms did they have and how long does it take to all settle down.I dont realy know if what I am experiencing is normal or not for recovery after this op, my doctor doesnt know much about this, not due to see surgeon again until check up in 6-8 weeks.Thank you.
