9 months post hysterectomy - persistent vaginal pressure

For the last few weeks, the old phantom tampon feeling is back. I remember this being explained as swelling and I just needed to relax and it went down. I haven't felt this since January or February! I mostly remember that I had a lot of swelling when I would sit too much. This far post-op, it seems strange to suddenly have swelling like that. Could this be an early sign of prolapse? I have a request out to my doctor but in the meantime, I'm wondering if anyone else has had a reoccurrence of swelling this far post-op?

Re: 9 months post hysterectomy - persistent vaginal pressure

The last time I had post-op swelling was at 5 months, and it was activity related. If you've done something new for the first time or have stepped up activity in the last few weeks, it could be from that.

You are correct that pelvic pressure could be an early sign of prolapse - see 15 Symptoms of Pelvic Organ Prolapse You Should Know. It's not the only sign, so I wouldn't venture a guess if this is what you might be experiencing.

There are other issues which could cause pelvic pressure including bladder and ovarian concerns or pelvic spasms, so good move on contacting your doctor. Please update us when you can.

Good you have an appointment. I didn't even know women could have a prolapse after their hysterectomy until last week when researching for a friend. Since then I've been doing more pelvis tightening kegels.

I hope for your sake, it is not. I'm sure you don't want to go through another procedure. Your doctor may send you for physio in that area. I know mine would if I felt anything new and strange down there. He told me so.

Re: 9 months post hysterectomy - persistent vaginal pressure

Great news! I have no signs of prolapse. The pressure is likely related to straining my pelvic muscles or an imbalance of some kind due to over-exertion. I've been referred to pelvic floor physical therapy and the doc recommended ibuprofen, a heating pad, and warm baths to relax the area. Who knew you could strain your pelvis? I need to watch the heavy lifting and get more rest. I'm so relieved I got checked out though since this doesn't seem to be magically getting better on its own.

Great news! We've had members who've had success with PFT before - the track record is pretty good, and I hope it's just as successful for you.
