Today I had my surgery ???? the surgery went well...

Today I had my surgery ???? the surgery went well and per my doctor's resident, I was tight again like I'm 13 ....this made me chuckle after surgery lol. I was in a lot of pain following the surgery. I was given pain meds in my IV which then made me nauseous. My nurse gave another med through the IV to combat the nauseous. I thought my recovery wouldn't be long as my surgery started at 8am.....however, I wasn't feeling well enough to leave hospital until around 3 or 4. I also had to urinate before I could be discharged and that took awhile. I was prescribed Norco(pain med) and Colace (stool softener). I have light bleeding which is surprising because I thought it would be heavy but it has lightened up progressively during the day. The pain right now is hovering at 5/6 out of 10....it drops to about a 3/4 after I take meds. The pain is throbbing and can be felt from my clitoris (sorry for TMI) through the anus. Impossible right now to sit on my bottom even with a pillow for now. I am laying on one side or the other for relief. I am nervous on what to eat as I don't want to get constipated since the anus hurts already and I don't want to strain. I haven't eaten solid food since Sunday per surgery instructions. I took laxatives to clear the system pre surgery. I was on a liquid diet all Monday so I haven't had to bm yet. Once the pain really starts to recede, then I can think about if it worked. I am
hopeful it did ????


I finally had sex for the first time about a week ago and it was good! Not to be graphic literally every stroke was felt :-) I'm happy it was worth it

I believe she is an expert with this type of surgery and easy to talk to about a very sensitive topic among women.
