I am so sorry to hear of your problems, and understand the demands of looking after your boys.

Is your Dr a Urogynecologist?  Why did you have to have a second bladder repair and was this with the same Dr?  You have had this catheter in for 5 weeks, but did the Dr tell you it was permanent or why you are having to catheterize for this amount of time?  It is time for you to ask your Dr more questions and consider a second opinion if you feel you are not getting the answers you require.  Prolapse operations can take up to 12 weeks max to heal but most ladies report that they are usually catheter free in significantly ess time than 5 weeks.  I would be looking for an answer as to why it is taking this long from your Dr and be looking for a possible second opinion if you dont feel you are getting the answers to your questions that you require.

Let us know how you get on and dont hesitate to get back to us at any time
