Prolapsed Again

I have been offered an Anterior and Posterior repair using Pelvicol.
Has anyone had experience of this procedure?

Prolapsed Again

I had a rectocele and enterocele repaired with pelvicol last Jan. My gyn said it should last a lifetime. It is pig material and feels just like vaginal tissue. He said it is much better than just the traditional cutting and suturing. I had discomfort with intercourse with my DH, so he said this should keep it from getting any worst. Most of his patients have had excellent results from it.
I am having a anterior repair and tvt done tomorrow by a uro/gyn. He just said he will extend the incision from the tvt on up, then suture the layers back together. I really wished I would have insisted on him using pelvicol. Maybe I will be surprised and he will use it.
Just for a 4xm x 5cm peice of pelvicol it costed $1200.00. I couldn't believe it when I saw it on my itemized bill.
Good luck and you should be happy with your repair.
Peggy
