I learned a few days ago from my gyn that I have prolapse of uterus and bladder. She presented me with the surgical solution and I cried all day afterward as I waited to hear when my surgery would be. We planned to have it done just before christmas so that I would have support at home for recovery. While I was researching whether or not to have my ovaries removed in addition to the uterus, plus bladder repair, I found this site! I had no idea there was any hope. Just prior to my gyn appt, I had figured out on my own that the bulge I was seeing and feeling was probably some type of prolapse and I saw on line that there were various surgeries to prop up the uterus by attaching it to another point in the back or something. When I asked my dr about this surgery she told me she doesnt do it and that she doesnt know anyone that does. Anyway, I bought the book and cd and hope to be able to live with prolapse before giving in to surgery. The uterus is constantly falling down quite low and I spend every trip to the bathroom pushing it back up. I have lower back aches on the sides, near my hips that I presume are ovaries or something connected with the prolapse. Some days it bothers me more than others. I have not viewed the dvd yet but I am hoping the exercises and posture will help. How many years do people manage with this type of approach with prolapse as far along as mine (uterus just about escaped!) I am 50 years old, have 3 kids, first was a c-section and the 2nd two were vaginal, large boys 9 lbs 3 oz and the killer, my last, at age 40-- 10 lbs 7 oz. Ouch. I assume my problems stem from my big boy as I healed pretty well after the first two. Any encouragement or feedback to help me is appreciated.
