Just an update. I got an earlier surgery date due to an opening in my surgeon's schedule, so I had my repairs done this past Wednesday. I was supposed to need a rectocyle repair along with the cystocyle, hysterectomy, and DaVinci sling, but I didn't end up needing the rectocycle.
I'm feeling pretty good already, a lot better than I expected, and I'm guessing that's because I didn't need that last procedure, which Sherrie's book indicates is the most difficult in terms of recovery. I got home at 5 last evening, and today at 1 pm I got my suprapubic catheter removed because from my first bladder function test at the hospital I was emptying most of the urine on my own.
So far, so good. Pain is only moderate and my Percocet's are working well for me. I mostly feel like I've been kicked repeatedly in the pubic bone.
