I’m struggling to find posts about what’s going on with me so I thought I’d braindump and hope for the best lol.
I have a prolapsed uterus, a rectocele and a cystole. The Doctors think the uterus is causing the other two complaints. I’m booked in for a vaginal hysterectomy and anterior repair on 30/11 and just not sure what to expect really? Will I need HRT? They’re leaving my ovaries. I’ve put on two stone in the last two years, which is strange for me, could it be related maybe? Will I struggle to lose weight more after surgery? Will compression pants help recovery with a vaginal hysterectomy?
I have a bad back but it’s been getting much worse in recent years, could the prolapsed uterus be a reason for this? Do you still have your sensations during intimacy etc? How about bowel problems? I’ve had terrible problems because of this, my uterus pushes against my rectum so I really struggle to pass stools. To the point I have to ‘help’ the process, if you know what I mean 👆🏼 and this happens about 16 times a day, 20 minutes a pop 😩
I’m hoping the surgery will help my bowel but my rectocele is worse than my cystole and when I last saw my consultant I didn’t think to ask why she was doing an anterior repair opposed to a posterior one? I’m only 34 so I’m also worrying about long term implications and dealing with the mental side that goes with it.
Any advice would help as I feel blind in all this no matter how much research I do.
