It's now 3.5 weeks post op and I'm mending slowly. Still needing to rest if I do too much but coping with more and more. Yesterday I managed a 10 min drive without coming home exhausted. Also walked around the shops for 2 hours but was shaking and exhausted after that. The week before I only managed half an hour before needing to rest. Any pushing/pulling still aggravates as does bumpy car rides. My dogs are happy though as I can now lift them into the bed (little Maltese fluffy slippers).
The most exciting bit is my bladder!!! It works! No more running to the loo before it runs down my leg, no more excruciating pain when it has something in it, no more getting up multiple times in the night. It's heaven!
The menopausal symptoms have been manageable and haven't needed to take any HRT yet. Fingers crossed it doesn't get any worse.
Have two more weeks off work and looking forward to them. Still couldn't manage a full day (special needs teacher) but every day feeling better. So glad I've had this done.
