Urethral prolapse

I had a SLH 6 weeks ago. Other than some pelvic pressure, I have been feeling pretty good for the last couple weeks. All was fine at my 4 wk appointment. On Friday evening, I noticed a walnut-sized lump near (but not in) my vaginal. It appears to me that I have a urethral prolapse. The absolute last thing I want are any more problems with this region of my body.

I'm sure the prudent thing to do is to call the surgeon and get an appointment. But, I'm wondering if there's anything to be done at this point. It's quite uncomfortable but not necessarily painful.

Has anyone else experienced anything similar? If yes, what did you do? Anything I can do to avoid a trip to the doc?

Thanks for any and all suggestions!

Re: Urethral prolapse

I would go the dr if I were yiu, just to know for sure. After a hysterectomy tissue does take a while to heal, so maybe time will help and some of the prolapse may even out (at least my dr said to wait at least six months to see the 'final' results). Six weeks is not a long time, so maybe it is just a healing issue? On the other hand prolapse issues do sometimes develop after hysterectomy and usually they get worse over time, not better. Doing kegels etc if your dr is okay with that might help a little.

I have bad connective tissue and basically everything was prolapsed. Really freaked me out, but in the end you get used to it. I had bad luck with surgeries gone bad four times, but now finally after a hysterectomy and bilateral uterosacral colpopexy it is better. Had a TVT sling removed last week and a new smaller version out back, which feels so much better also. The TVT sling was for the urethral prolapse.

I still have a rectocele and a small cystocele is developing so may need some additional surgery in a while, but things already feel so much better. So, I am sorry to say that for me surgery was the solution, PT did not work and the prolapsed caused a lot of issues. If it is bothering you too much, go see the dr, maybe he or she has some good advise? If it is still acceptable you can always wait it out....but I found that hard...

Good luck, I hope things go well for you!

Re: Urethral prolapse

i would definitely call the doctor, sometimes you can have swelling quite far out, i was horribly swollen at 4 weeks out when i wasn't at 2. maybe it is that, i thought everything had come out at first but it hadn't

Re: Urethral prolapse

I'm with the others about getting it check it'll give you peace of mind knowing what it is if anything.
I really think us women really like to worry about stuff as well just to drive us crazy LOL!
Well keep us posted and wishing you luck.

I go today for my six week check up and a little nervous about that I'm hoping all is well.

Good luck and stay positive =)
