What is a hysterectomy, or a repair for prolapse, or an operation for stress incontinence? Will I put on weight or suffer from depression? Will I still have periods, or need contraception? How soon after these operations can I do housework, return to work or drive a car? Will my sex life be affected? What about lifting - how soon and how heavy? When can I go swimming or do some gardening or start exercising again?
The authors explain the meaning and effect of the operations and describe how to prepare in advance for them. They then give much useful advice on what to do afterwards, to enable you to gain a full and trouble-free return to normal life. Diagrams and photographs are included wherever these are likely to be helpful.
