increased discomfort with prolapse

Have any of you ever experienced an increase in discomfort and pressure as you tick off the days waiting for surgery. and was there any change in your condition. I am a level 2 and my surgery was supposed to be the 28th of this month and just was changed to Nov. 6. I am so bummed, at this point I want the surgery so that I am back on the path to feeling better!!! Any thoughts or ideas would be helpful, do I need to cut back?

I am sorry they had to postpone your surgery . It really isn't too much longer than the first date. If it helps to be off your feet and your are able to do that, it might help ease the pressure.

Please hang in there, you don't have too much longer to wait to get on that road to good health.

increased discomfort with prolapse

Thanks. I do realize how lucky I am and that the postponement is minimal. I guess the surprise in the increase in discomfort is getting to me. I think I am being told to cut back and not do every thing I thought I could. My Dr. thinks there was something to cause a significant change. I would like to think there was something easy to change. I'm rambling. I think once you make the decision, it sould instantly be over, the waiting is brutal.

This website is amazing though, I can tell the support is there, even though I don't have a clue what I am doing

increased discomfort with prolapse

I posted on your other thread asking about pessary -- I'm sorry you're going through this. mine was postponed 2 weeks, I was so bummed. then they tried to postpone it again but the dr's office manager told him I would flip a nut if they postponed it again, and they just moved it to the next day instead.

my husband says do whatever the surgeon needs to be happy -- don't complain because you want the surgeon to like you when he's working on you! lol sort of like being nice to the waitress before you get your food...

anyway, I'm really sorry and I understand. again, I'd call and ask if they can fit you for a pessary.

increased discomfort with prolapse

It was strange for me - my last period (week before surgery) was really bad - I told DH that my uterus is getting back at me! Also my prolapse seemed to happen more often than usual for about a month before surgery. Can't explain the reasoning for it but now after surgery I sometimes "look" for it when I'm in the bathroom - I guess I got so used to seeing my cervix poke out I kinda expected it happen again!

I went through a lot of discomfort, first I was treated by my for a vaginal infection, then sent to a GYN and he did the same thing. Just waisting my time. I even had trouble sitting. I got to a stage 3 and was finally sent to a specialist URO/GYN and he gave me two tests and surgery as soon as posible. Will be 6 weeks post tomorrow. Feel so much like a new woman. Love, ((((STITCHER))))
