i had surgery for prolapse on 25th june...i was in hospital 2 days as had bladder retention. consultant never botheted coming to see me after surgery to tell me how it went or give me post op care instructions/restrictions. i was sent home after 2 days then had to go back to gynae admissions next day as still had bladder retention. when nurse checked urine i had rsging uti that theyd not checked on ward 24. had to go home with a catheter for another week. asked to see consultant who did my surgery but was told to wait till my 6 wk check. had to go back to admissions the next week with a post op wound infection...again couldnt see my consultant n was told to wait for 6 week check. my 6 week check is with a nuse not the consultant. im 3 wks post op for surgery amd my bladder repair has just dropped n failed. i need to see my consultant but i guess theres no point as i havent seen them at before or after surgery!! im quite disgusted that someone can have major surgery n the person operating doesnt come to check on them after. where do i go now if my surgerys failed at 2/3wk post op?? why is it so hard to have continuation of care n be seen by the person respondible for ur operation?
