What's colposuspension?

Hi Nervous Nel (great ID)

Thanks for the impact exercise advice - I've got a pamphlet here that advises no heavy digging/lifting ever following a 'colposuspension'. Now I don't know whether a sacro colpopexy is a 'colposuspension' or whether that is something different? If it is the same thing could my booklet (by Sally Haslett & Molly Jennings, given out by the hospital) just be out of date .. I sometimes find the DRs vague about what you can and can't do.

Will I eventually be able to go back to running and doing the type of lifting/gardening I'm used to doing? I don't do anything like weight lifting. How about others?

Prolapse after abdominal hysterectomy

I was given a ten pound weight restriction "forever", and that was just after the hyst without regard to prolapse.

From another site:

EXERCISING

Keeping fit is an important part of prolapse management. The less excess weight we are carrying the more our body can cope with current prolapse and prevent further prolapse.

EXERCISES THAT ARE "NO NOs"

Anything High Impact (or that jolts the body)
Anything that puts stress on the pelvic region
Anything that forces you to bear substancial weight

Examples include: jogging, running, sit-ups, crunches, aerobics, judo, karate, weight-lifting, horse riding

EXERCISES THAT ARE GOOD FOR YOU

THINK - LOW IMPACT, NON WEIGHT BEARING, NON JOLTING

Examples include: swimming, walking, bike riding, tai chi, water aerobics, yoga

These exercise restrictions are for those with prolapse or post op. (whether that be post op. from hysterectomy or uterine resuspension). Our bodies are already compromised by prolapse and our pelvic floor is weak - we are all susceptible to new prolapse whether or not we have had surgery.
