Prolapse Problems after surgery

Leona, my prolapse repairs were done vaginally. Is your sister talking about prolapse repairs done abdominally? If so then I think laparoscopy would be beneficial but otherwise most prolapse repairs are done vaginally.

Prolapse Problems after surgery

Hi Michelle, This may be a repeat message because I might have hit the wrong button--if not, I will call this doctor my sister has found and get the information tomorrow. Since I'm not scheduled for surgery till the 27th , I still have plenty of time.

Prolapse Problems after surgery

Hi There,
Last April I had an abdominal hysterectomy, sacrocolpopexy and posterior repairs for uterine prolapse and rectocele. At the 6 month mark they failed and my cervix is prolapsed again.
I am told that this happened because I have a collegan disorder which prevents my body from forming proper scar tissue, and thus, when my disolving stitches disolved, it failed and fell again.

I go in on April 5th (one day short of my one year hysterversary) to have the reapirs done. The first time I was in hospital for 6 days, and this time will be about the same, 5-6 days.

So yes, I had the same thing happen... they say it only fails in 1-5% of people with this surgery done (and that they had not seen such a severe prolapse in a 27yr old before (27 whenn it happened, 29 now). Lucky us, lol.

Good luck with your repairs!!

Spotter, did the Dr tell you why you were going to be in the hospital so long? I was told I would only be in overnight. The first Uro/Gyn I originally scheduled surgery with was going to perform the surgery and send me home the same day.

Is that related to the uterine muscles?

Prolapse Problems after surgery

Not really...I did ask if I could go home even the next day and he said I would have some sort of packing and he always wants his patients in for a minimum of 2 days. If everything goes well I could come home in 2 days, but if not, it will be 3. Right now I have a terrible cold since last Friday . If it's not gone this week, I'm sure they will postpone the surgery.

Prolapse Problems after surgery

Hi again, the reason I had to stay so long, and will again this time, is because it is an abdominal incision at least 7 inches in length. My scar goes from navel to pelvic bone. Just as last time I will have a cathetar for the first few days (4 days last time) and will still be on the morphine pump until at least 48hrs after surgery. They also like to wait until you have a bowl movement and are peeing on your own, to be sure everything is working properly. I had the abdominal cathetar removed on about day 4 also I believe.
As much as I hated the hospital stay and missed my family (being 2.5 hrs away) I am glad they kept me that long last time. I did not get good, or even a little comfortable, at moving around until about day 4 post-op.
I guess it differs with surgeons, but around here that was the standard stay for the type of surgery I had done. :0)

Prolapse Problems after surgery

Just to add a note to what has already been said by others in this forum...I had a TVH in 1999, a year later had surgery for an enterocele and rectocele done laposcopicly. Last June I had to have surgery again for prolapse. This time done vaginally. I was only in the hospital overnight each time. Did not come home with a catherter! I won't say it's been easy, but I am finally feeling much better than I was. Now I just have to find out about hormone replacement or not. Don't know what is going to work best for me.
