Re: cystocele operation

rainey,

I had my (TVH) Transvaginal hyst/bladder sling 10 years ago, and was told lift nothing heavier than a gallon of milk for 6 weeks.
One thing you have to remember is a Hysterectomy is MAJOR SURGERY which is what my GYN told me, so you need to be kind to your self. You only have one chance for a good recovery.
Do you know what method of repair they are using for the cystocele?

Wish you the best,
God bless and take care,
Annette
