Hi Dragon, the issues that we all have post op can be difficult emotionally and physically, it takes the body a long time to settle down, the relationship with your partner will also settle I think, she is also in unfamiliar territory, it is difficult to cope with life changes that have occurred as a result of the surgery. It has been 17months since my surgery, in that time I have wet the bed 3 times in the middle of the night, which was hard on my wife having to wake up and change the bed, all sorts of things have happened, bowel probs, etc etc.
It takes a long time to start feeling more like your old self, which is where I am now, thankfully, so be patient my friend, after a period of time I am sure you also will reach that place.
Best regards Mal.
