Oh my word! I'm sorry you are going through this. I am two years out, and I still cannot wear a waistband in a certain area. The waistband on my pants has to be higher or lower or I get a weird pressure pain/cramp, but nothing that causes such severe pain. I also had a prolapse repair so often after a bowel movement I will have pretty bad cramping (somewhere down there) that requires me to sit and be still for a bit. It typically only last a few minutes. I also still get "swelly belly", where your abdomen swells and gets hard after heavy activates or exercise. It used be everyday, by evening, I would be swollen. Now it is only when I'm super active. I say that only to let you know, I believe after two years I am still not 100% healed. I don't have any new issues, but the old ones are still hanging around. You may want to make a fuss with your doctors to see if they can get to the bottom of what is causing your cramping, especially if it wasn't there before. Keep us posted- @cherelle All the best!
