Surgery and bladder???

Ok, I had everything taken out buy my right ovary. Scar tissue had grown into my bladder. Doc didn't say anything about repairing or doing anything besides taking scar tissue out of bladder. My question is, what is holding the bladder up? With the uterus out, what is keeping from falling down? TIA

Re: Surgery and bladder???

I had a SAH BSO six weeks ago. As part of the surgery, my doctor performed a colpopexy - a procedure where the round ligaments that formerly held the uterus in place are sewn to the top of the cervix to hold it up - all to prevent a prolapse later on. Ask for a copy of your surgical report - it's pretty interesting reading - it outlines everything that was done in the operating room.

Re: Surgery and bladder???

Thanks, I'm healing well. I hope you are as well. I too had a great deal of adhesions between my uterus and bladder (from 3 prior c-sections). My doctor told me it took him quite a bit of time to fully free my bladder. During this surgery, he placed a film barrier on the cervical stump to minimize the chance of any adhesions forming. Luckily, they had caused no symptoms as I do know a number of women here have reported problems from having adhesions. I guess I was lucky in that regard.
