Prolapsed uterus

Hi everyone, I am 38 and have a prolapsed uterus after having twins. On seeing my doctor this week she recommended having a partial hysterectomy of the uterus. She told me that pelvic floor exercises won't help and that a vaginal hysterectomy is the 'easiest' way to solve this problem.

Should I persist with doing pelvic floor exercises or is it a waste of time.

I am confused about what to do. Anyone that can give me any information, positive or negative will be greatly appreciated.

Dear Pisces:

I was also a victim of prolapse. It's my understanding that the pelvic exercises can be effective only for prevention, not *after the fact*.

I would recommend that you get a second or even third medical opinion. I was able to find a uro-gynecologist who specialized in pelvic reconstruction. When I had gathered enough info, I opted for the TVH (vaginal hyst leaving ovaries) anyway. Here is a link to our Resources Directory: https://www.hystersisters.com/vb2/lin...n=browse&cid=2

and specifically, a prolapse website with message board: http://groups.msn.com/choiceforprola...pgmarket=en-au

Good luck on your research, and keep us posted!! I am sending huge cyberhugs
