found a prolapse devastated!

Originally posted by Panda
I try to drink throughout the day to the point where I've had about 85 - 90 ounces by the end of the day. My bladder has finally adjusted so that I'm not running to the bathroom all the time. The typically recommended 8 8-ounces of water a day does nothing for me.
Not wanting to scare you, Anita, but be careful not to drink *too much* water. My mom takes many meds, and she told me that her dr. warned her to drink plenty of water. She thought she was supposed to drink 8 oz. with each pill, and ended up drinking more than the 64 oz. a day. Anyways, when she was in the hospital after having a TIA (kind of like a mini-stroke), the dr. discovered that her salts/electrolytes were off, caused from drinking too much water. He put her on fluid restriction.

We're told to drink plenty of water, but many of us do not realize that it's possible to drink *too much* water!

I'm not saying that you are doing that, just sharing my mom's experience. But you might want to check with your dr. to see how much water he/she thinks is ok.

found a prolapse devastated!

Hello...Remember me??? I am also a year on from surgery and am worrying that 'something' is coming down. I am sitting on an egg again.

I have had a bad knock on my tailbone though and also a very bad cough after a virus, so am trying to convince myself it it is internal bruising.

Have tried to feel it, but I just don't know what normal feels like! I feel loads of bulges apparently close to the entrance so I don't know what is ok or not and ten frighten myself.

I have a dr appt 7 June so may be this will either have gone or got worse by then!

Nice to talk to one year people again.....

Well surgery is set for tomorrow. Just waiting today to find out what time. Have to drink that awlful stuff at noon then lots of water and clear diet. Hope I don't throw up that yucky stuff! I had the pre op tuesday. The doctor explain to me what all he is going to do. Seperating the rectum from the vigina, smoothing out the vigina wall with graphs and reattaching and tighten everything. Then put a sling around the bladder neck. I will be in the hospital for 2 days. Before a was a bit nervous. These flare ups have been getting worse. The pain it is getting hard to walk. Now I am kinda looking forward to pain free days.
I was wondering are you put on a special diet after surgery?

Hi All

Its been a while since I posted I'm over a year post op TAH with no real problems for months now, in fact I was just saying the other week how great I feel

But now I think I've got some sort of prolapse. I keep leeking 'P' when I sneeze or cough or the other day when I vomited, its really unnerving I'm only 38. Also I'm getting really bad pain with sex, something I've always suffered from but much worse of late. weird thing is that its not every time. I also can feel a bulge inside my vagina but maybe it's meant to be there I've got nothing to gauge it on, no noticible problems with my bowels as such they've always been erratic. Also really heavy feeling in the pit of my stomach like I used to get just before my period was due.

I'm really worried I thought my hys would be the end of my problems no-one mentioned to me anything about prolapse.
