Are you preparing for upcoming pelvic or vaginal surgery?
Are you recovering from a hysterectomy?
Hysterectomy is the most common female surgery. Preparing for and recovering from pelvic and vaginal surgery is easier with expert advice as there are many activities which can impact healing and your comfort during recovery. Professional advice gives you peace of mind during your recovery and enables you to return to your normal level of activity with confidence.
Your recovery from surgery and long term outcome can be impacted by many factors including constipation, heavy lifting, returning too quickly to strenuous activities and poor pelvic floor muscle function. Occasionally after surgery woman can experience problems such as bladder leakage or painful sex.
Your long term recovery will be enhanced by having optimal pelvic floor and abdominal muscle function. Research shows that 50% of women cannot contract their pelvic floor muscles correctly following verbal or written instruction. In fact 25% of women use a technique that could weaken their pelvic floor. It is vital that you know how to correctly contract and relax your pelvic floor through the assistance of a specifically trained Physiotherapist.
