    LAVH with Rectocele and Enterocele Repair

    I am scheduled for my surgery on Dec 22nd...what can I expect for pain and recovery time? I was scheduled for Jan, but they had a cancellation so I am going earlier..and I am a little nervous of the unknown!

    Re: LAVH with Rectocele and Enterocele Repair

    Hi I had a LAVH and appectecomy in July. I only took tylenol after I was out of recovery. For me it was truly the easiest surgery I have ever had. Perhaps part of the relief was the fact I was in pain for 2 years prior to the surgery. No lifting, and even now I am careful as I will feel a twinge. I did find on Thanksgiving after cooking for 14 people I had to stop during the last minute prep because I suddenly felt very weak. Thankfully, lots of family stepped forward to help me, but it was a reminder that I am still recovering.
    I was surprised at how little the incisions are in my ab and belly button. I think I had 2 stitches on each. My tummy was a little bloated for the first two weeks but then I wore my jeans. Good luck
