Colposuspension surgery? I have just had this done a week ago and I am still in quite a bit of pain. Just looking for feedback from others on their recovery journey
Thank you for your question. It can take longer than six weeks to fully recover from colposuspension surgery.
Do not do any strenuous exercise or lift anything heavy, for six to eight weeks after your operation. Doctors also recommend not driving until any pain has completely gone.
Are you taking any over the counter painkillers currently?
If anyone has experienced colposuspension, it would be interesting to hear your tips on the recovery process.
If you are worried that you are not progressing at the right pace, I would recommend going back to your Doctor. Tell the Doctor of your concerns and difficulty with doing the exercises.
It is also important to go back to the hospital to ensure you don’t have a wound infection. Do you have any bleeding, redness or puss leaking from the wound?
