Hoping one of you has any advise on recovery from Total pelvic peritoneal excision surgery....
I had my operation at the beginning of September 2017, nearly five months ago. I am still off work, still in pain and have had nerve pain in my legs for the past couple of months. I am very disheartened already as I was told it would be a six week recovery and yet I am still struggling.
On Saturday my husband and I attempted intercourse for the first time since my surgery. It was painful and we had to stop. Sunday night I felt a paint similar to a water infection. Today the pain was still there I have drunk lots of cranberry and water. The pain has got so much worse. I’m really unsure of what is wrong, there is no pain when I wee it’s not burning/stinging the typical symptoms but as soon as I’ve stopped weeing the pain deep in my vagina is intense. Along with a constant pain deep inside constantly which feels like it is getting worse. My lower pelvis is tender to the touch with pain.
I’m worried this is because we attempted intercourse Saturday ? Please if anyone else has had any similar experience post surgery or any time any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for reading sending lots of love to you all xx
