Hi, I had the above 3 procedures done two weeks ago today and I would like to hear from other ladies who have had the same surgery please. I am still bleeding, feel discomfort and bulging down below and now find it difficult to pass urine. I am just wondering if this is usual and to be expected.If it is part of the healing process, swelling etc then fine I will cope, but I do not understand how I can bleed fresh blood and that is considered to be "healing". It is the same amount as a period and I change my pad each time I go to the toilet and in between if it feels too wet.Does anybody have any advice or similar experiences please?

Are you due to go back for a checkup? I think I would be wanting to see someone about this. I haven't had those procedures but doesn't sound right to be still bleeding that much without being warned of it beforehand.

I've had a TVT and anterior repair - your siyuation doesn't sound right at all ( sorry ) .
Have you got a helpful GP who could ring hospital on your behalf and get you checked out ?
Otherwise I think you must get hold of consultant ( or office of ) you were under and get an urgent appointment .
Or better yet - go to A& E .
Good luck and commiserations .

Thank you Samjones and gingeroots, I had an appointment this afternoon with the surgeon. I telephoned his secretary and she got me straight in. It turns out that I have an infection and have been prescribed antibiotics...........mind you he said that a possible side effect of the pills could be thrush!!!arghhhh!!!!

I just didn't know if my symptoms were usual and I was being fussy.

Thanks again

No not fussy at all ,I so know where you're coming from here .
Musn't make a fuss ,lots of others with more serious problems .
Now , what can be done to counteract the thrush inducing aspects of antibiotics ?
Live yoghurt ?
Pro biotic pills ?
Someone should know and give us their advice ?

What about the discharge after this surgery. I am not bleeding fresh blood buy am experiencing a lot of discharge. Is that normal?
