just thought i'd post to relay my experience.
Waited for nearly an hour to be called, depressingly the youngest in the waiting area by about 30 years.
Anyway i didn't see the consultant who performed the surgery but one of the team, which was fine. This guy listened to and answered all my questions that I had neglected to ask at my all clear appointment.
He did examine me internally and looked at my incision sites. My biggest gripe is a pain in my right hip which is worse after sitting and driving, this is combined with numbness on my inner thigh. He believes that its a bit of sensory nerve damage and they will check again at the 6 month point and if i'm still experiencing it send me for an MRI.
I wanted to find out what the monitoring schedule is, where I am being treated as it seems to be different everywhere, so for me it will be every 3 months till 1 year, then an MRI, then every 6 months to 2 years and then that's it. This was stated on the caveat of being sensible and reporting symptoms when pressed further on this he stated bloody discharge after sex or changes in bladder/bowel function. I will question further the sensible statement when I have my next checkup.
