Hi guys, thanks for your replies. I had the TAC, which is full abdominal surgery, pretty much the same as a caesarean incision. They prefer that to laparoscopic, due to it being quicker and easier for the surgeon. I was brave and did it!
I had pretty awful post surgery sickness and nausea, which knocked me for six. But that's not normal. Also lots of trouble with my digestion and bowels afterwards, which is fairly expected. The procedure and incision itself though have been fine. I was off painkillers by day 4 pretty much and 2 weeks later am going for short walks and getting around the house very well.
I had Prof Shennan at St Thomas's do my surgery. He's the best. I would strongly recommend the TAC if you have the option. It's by far the most successful way of preventing late miscarriage or premature birth. I think they have over 90% success rates. Once it's there you have no choice but caesarean birth, so have to go through it again for as many babies as you want.
It's not an easy option by far, but as someone else said to me, nothing is more painful than losing a baby.
Best wishes! Xxx
