Vagina wall collapse

I have had a hysterectomy and my bladder has been cut at the same time. I have had 3 repairs of the bladder (vvf fistula) and now I have found out my vagina wall has collapsed .
Has anyone had there vagina wall collapse and what did they have to do to repair?
I can't get into my gyno until 29th may and I am worried
Thanks

Gail--

I'm sorry you've been having such awful problems with your bladder having to be repaired so often--wow and ouch! Extra S to you....
Please call your Dr. and ask him/her to describe your vaginal condition fully to you so you can 'understand' it completely. I am thinking s/he may have said 'prolapse' instead of 'collapse' to you. A prolapse is not usually an emergency condition and if your Dr. had examined it and found it to be one, s/he certainly would have told you at the time. If it is prolapsed, you would need to know if you are prolapsed in the bladder area, rectal area or otherwise.

Mainly, do you feel any pain or pressure symptoms? If not, definitely do NOT worry. It is something that can wait until you see your gynecologist. Even if you DO feel pain or pressure, it can also usually wait unless your entire vaginal canal has completely prolapsed outside your body which is an extremely rare thing to have happen.

It will likely be reassuring to see your Dr. so please let us know how things go afterwards.

Sending many S.......
