    Hi jojo I think it’s the external wounds due to the risk of infection – but generally I think the advice is to wait for 6 weeks before swimming xx

  • juleskirk50 replied to the topic December 2018 in the forum December 2 weeks, 3 days ago

    Hello dory and welcome – of course you can post here you are welcome anywhere on the forums – you should also have a look at the November ladies group as they are almost all done and sitting on the recovery couch and would be glad to share their recovery tips with you. Re the bra thing I got a nice soft non wired bra from m and s it’s not the m…[Read more]

  • juleskirk50 replied to the topic December 2018 in the forum December 2 weeks, 5 days ago

    Good evening ladies and welcome emwal – you will find plenty support and advice here and as everyone says the waiting is the worst part of it all – we all need to be patient during recovery though as you only get one chance to recover so it’s worth taking the time to do so even though it’s frustrating doing nothing 😎 it’s worth it to achie…[Read more]

  • juleskirk50 replied to the topic 7 days post op in the forum November 2 weeks, 6 days ago

    Hi Sophie I would say the recovery guide is fairly accurate no matter how you had your surgery as you all have internal stitches which need to heal so while the recovery time is perhaps a bit less than those who have incisions the early days of your recovery are similar in that you still need to rest and allow yourself to heal internally xx…[Read more]

  • Hello feelingwierd and welcome,

    You should pop over to the November forum where you can chat with the ladies who are waiting on surgery or are recovering.

    I can’t answer your question about the dressing as the advice varies and everyone seems to be given differing advice so I can only suggest you ask the hospital or your gp.

    The lovely s…[Read more]

    Hello laheaford and welcome,

    You are still very early days in your recovery so don’t be too hard on yourself – I have popped on the recovery guide which will give you some idea what you can or can’t achieve during the first couple of weeks of your recovery – I would also suggest you keep taking regular pain relief for a while as it helps you to…[Read more]

    rubycat good luck for tomorrow I hope you’re having a relaxing evening and all goes well tomorrow – this time tomorrow the waiting will be over and you’ll be sitting comfortably on the done couch xx

  • juleskirk50 replied to the topic December 2018 in the forum December 3 weeks, 5 days ago

    Good evening Bella and welcome,

    You will find plenty support and advice here so if you have any questions just ask – you should also ( if you haven’t already ) have a read around the current month where the ladies are either waiting for surgery or recovering and this will give you some idea of what to expect. Xx

  • Hello Annie Welcome to the site,

    I have popped a recovery guide for you which is fairly accurate – you seem to have recovered well and walking at this stage is the best exercise for you. You have maybe overdone it a little and your body usually lets you know so I would try resting and see how things go and if they don’t improve perhaps ask your g…[Read more]

  • juleskirk50 replied to the topic December 2018 in the forum December 4 weeks ago

    Good evening ladies and welcome heather and felicity,

    Felicity could you confirm your surgery date for our list . Xx

    Jo – I had a spinal block and I can confirm it’s fab 😉 the first day I had no pain whatsoever so was very pleased ( even though I didn’t know I was getting it !😮) but can highly recommend xx

    Have a good evening ladies x
