today is exactly one year since I underwent reconstruction of the pelvic floor, removal of rectocele, cystocele, removal of vaginal mesh, etc. the operative report lists several other procedures that were completed. I still have much pain on the right side of the vagina and that side feels much thicker that the other side. this issue is causing problems in our long marriage as I am unable to be intimate with my husband due to the pain I have to endure. I was informed that in 6 weeks I should be able to carry out my normal household duties and continue with my daily walking as I have been an avid walker for over 30 years. I am of the opinion that I will never be the same again. I am tired very frequently with a feeling of total fatigue most of the time preventing me from performing any type of exercise. due to the lack of exercise I have gained nearly 10 pounds. I have turned into a very depressed individual.

Wonderful Doctor

Dr. Lentz operated on me in 99. There can be no better Dr. anywhere and his kindness and patience was outstanding. I need help again and was so relieved to know he is still in the area. He is truly a gift from God.

Pre-Op, During, Post Op, & Follow Up Obstetrical Surgery

He is very kind, with a wonderful bedside manner, yet very direct when giving instructions to follow when going home after having surgery. Makes every attempt to work with you. I required repair of Prolapsed Bladder, Cystocele, Rectocele, and needed to have bladder be catheterized to make sure my bladder was emptying properly. I lived about 60 miles from his office, and rather than having me come back several days in a row, I was taught to in and out cath myself, and then just called in to advise them of my progress. He works with you to make things easier for you, as much as it is possible. His staff is all very nice & personable.
