does your prolapse hurt?

forgive me if I've asked this before but I'm just wondering if anyone else that is suffering from prolapses find it hurts? Mine isn't all the ways down all the time but when it does happen it's quite painfull and feels like I'm rubbing on something as I walk (bladder? bowel?) along with the lower back pain/bladder pain I have as well.

today it's just on the verge of falling out and I know if I could just lie down it would go back to where it belongs but I"m at work!!

thanks for the input, here I sit waiting for my follow up with the uro which isn't till Tues now

does your prolapse hurt?

Hi gidge I had a third or fourth degree prolapse, depending on who's counting , before my hyst. It never hurt, but I had this yucky feeling like something was falling out of me all the time (d'ya think?). It made it uncomfortable to walk in that I always had the feeling that it was going to fall completely out. But no pain .

Sorry you're feeling so uncomfortable. I sure can relate... I spent a fair amount of my time in the last week or two pre op on an inversion table, tilted head down. That felt great!

does your prolapse hurt?

My prolapses never really "hurt", but they were extrememly uncomfortable. Daily activities became more and more difficult. The only way to relieve the discomfort was to lie down. I've had two surgeries now to repair prolapses, and I finally feel great!

Do you plan to have surgery to repair these prolapses? Meanwhile, you might ask your gyn to fit you with a pessary. I found it a temporary solution to a permanent problem, but it certainly helped a lot before I made the decision to have the second surgery.

Wishing you good health,

does your prolapse hurt?

thanks for the replies girls!

When mine completely falls down (most of the time it's part way) it's hard to walk cause it feels totally like I"m rubbing on something and it feels like everytime I move I"m going to pee....and it hurts.....then there's the lovely thing when I'm sitting, sorry to be graphic but feels like I've got a tampon in sideways or something and it's poking me!

the only thing that makes me feel better is lying down or sitting with my feet higher then the rest of me....and if I run.....look out all kindsa stuff starts happening

I see the uro on Tues morning to see where we go from here, she said the only way to fix it is with surgery but that was all she would say until we got the cystoscopy and cystogram over I guess I find out more in a few days

Tuesday isn't far off, but if your surgery can't be scheduled for awhile and your that miserable, ask about a pessary to wear in the meantime. It really helped me get through the days. Since it must be removed for sexual intercourse, I eventually got tired of it, and opted for another surgery. If it's fitted correctly, you cannot even tell your wearing it.

Good luck! Kajsa

thanks Kasja!

She did mention the pessary but she said that most woman find it too uncomfortable and that it's only a stop gap measure....I figure I'm only 37 and would like as permanent of a fix as I can get if possible....Tues will tell I guess I have no idea what her surgical wait time is like or what kind of surgery I"m looking at......big, small,???
