    I had a sacrospinous fixation and LAVH 10 days ago, does anyone know if it’s normal to have a lot of back pain after this please?

    Hi Christy. I would have thought that some back pain is to be expected after this op but I’ve found this online which seems to say that buttock pain is common in the first few weeks http://c.ymcdn.com/sites/www.iuga.org/resource/resmgr/brochures/eng_sacrospinousfix.pdf It may be worth getting this checked out. Do you feel well otherwise? I was wondering about kidney infection?

    Are you still resting loads and following the recovery guide http://gallery.mailchimp.com/a5692c6457e86f0e2182630fa/files/sbs_recovery.pdf?utm_source=Free+Hysterectomy+Booklet&utm_campaign=30c61c525a-Booklet-14&utm_medium=email I found I got backache after my VH if I overdid things in the first three months.

    In the meantime..have a hug.

    Hi,

    I’m new here but feel just the same emotions as many of those on the forum. It’s very reassuring to learn of others feeling the same sort of fears and worries.

    Does anyone know whether sacrospinous fixation can be done for prolapse while leaving the uterus in place? Does it depend on the size of the uterus e.g. if enlarged with a fibroid can it not been done? Many thanks for any and all replies

    Hi Jill – It’s good you’ve found this forum as you wont feel so alone now. It is possible, from what I’ve read, to carry out the sacrospinous fixation retaining the uterus but the success rate might not be as good. I wasn’t offered this – possibly due to my age (60 when I had it done) so I can give any experience. I did find this http://patient.info/doctor/genitourinary-prolapse-pro You need to scroll down to “surgery for uterine prolapse” I’m not sure about whether you can have it done with an enlarged uterus though. Hope it helps.
