​What Happens After Surgery?

  1. After operation, you may experience:
    • Tiredness - you should rest and gradually increase your activity until you feel fit to return to your normal activities.
    • Some discomfort in the lower part of the abdomen - this is to be expected and painkillers should help to relieve the discomfort.
    • Vaginal bleeding - mild to moderate amount of reddish watery discharge up to 3 weeks after the operation is quite normal. You may want to wear a protective sanitary pad (not a tampon) during this period.
  2. You should refrain from:
    • Strenuous exercise - until you are feeling fully fit. You may return to normal activity after 4 weeks.
    • Using tampons, douching or sexual intercourse over the next 4 weeks
  3. You should return immediately to the Urogynaecology Centre (during office hours) or come to the O&G 24-hour Clinic if there is:
    • Heavy bright red vaginal bleeding
    • Foul smelling vaginal discharge
    • Severe abdominal distension and/or pain not relieved by painkillers
    • High fever
    • Pain on passing urine
    • Difficulty passing urine

When Do I Return For Follow-up

After the surgery, you will be seen at 1 week, 1 month, 6 months, 12 months and yearly thereafter. It is important to keep your follow-up appointments to ensure the best possible results.
