  • Recovering with Bladder sling

    Last week I had surgery for a 3rd stage Cystocele and uterine suspension along with vaginal vault surgery. I flared awfully the first day! When I told the nurses that I had IC none of them knew what I was talking about! The entire time I was in the hospital I was given all sorts of foods that were IC no no's such as oranges, lemonade, cranberry juice, coffee, foods with onions etc... I barely ate anything while I was there.

    I'm asking that you remember me in your prayers as I try to rest and recover from the surgery.

    Thank you!

            Hi, Aleet ~ Oh, how terrible. I had 3 surgeries last year and I asked my hubby to bring all my own drinks, etc. that were IC safe so a flare might not happen. I did do pretty good until the 3rd surgery and went into severe retention immediately.

            I know it took me off my feet for quite a while, slept a lot. Take care of yourself. Prayers that you're feeling better day by day. Just don't rush yourself. You want this surgery to "work"!

            Hugs,
            Never heard of IC til suspected....Never knew so many suffer from it. Praying for a cure. I've found answers...so can you...keep the hope.
