When my last DS was born in October I ended up with a fourth degree tear from the vaginal opening all the way to the rectal opening (yes, ouch!) Apparently it didn't heal correctly and now I have a hole on the inside between my vagina and rectum - lovely, I know. I can both poop and fart out my yoo-hoo and let me tell ya, it's an awesome experience *sarcasm* Anyway, I have to have surgery to repair it and the doctor is telling me it will be a 6-8 week recovery time. Has anyone else had to have this? I'm scared. I just got back from maternity leave last month, now to have to be gone again for that long, I don't know!
