Pre and Post Surgery

 

Pre-Operative

Good pelvic floor muscle function reduces the risk of recurrence of symptoms following bladder, bowel or prolapse repair surgery. Your Physiotherapist can assess your pelvic floor muscles and start you on an exercise programme. They will give you advice on what to expect post-operatively, and how to care for and protect your pelvic floor during the first six weeks.

Post-Operative

From six weeks, treatment involves:

  • Pelvic floor and abdominal rehabilitation
  • Advice on return to sport and exercise
  • Advice on long term maintenance exercises and lifestyle modification to maximise surgical outcomes.
