Prolapsed but want to keep my uterus! Is it possible?

Hello everyone, I am new, this is my first post
I am in Australia. I am 52 and two years post menopause. I have a stage three prolapsed uterus which is in fine health! Vaginal ultrasound yesterday told me so.
Now, they gyne wants me to have a vag hyster and a cystocele repair of my bladder. Here are my questions for all you experienced girls
Can I have my uterus 'hitched up' back to it's original position? Why chop out something healthy just because it fell down? Also, my bladder is working fine, why do I need a cystocele repair - how can she tell just by looking? What tests should I have on my bladder to confirm her diagnosis?
I also want to keep my cervix if possible.
I am astonished at the comments from friends and family women, they all say "just get rid of it, you will feel so much better" but there is nothing wrong with me now apart from the fact I am about to give birth to my uterus, it looks like a bald babies head is coming out any day now :-) I guess I do have to do something.
I am getting a second opinion soon also. I intend to fully investigate my options. What do you all think is best a vaginal hyster or abdo or lapro?
thanks all so much, I am glad to have found this great resource
cheers from Oz

i know what ya mean about removing something healthy. But when tonsils become very enlarged, are they healthy? When a uterus moves position, is it healthy? When a toe points in the wrong direction, do we leave it that way? It's a quality of life question. Will your quality of life be as good if the uterus is left in? Well, say it is lifted. You endure anesthesia and surgery only to need it repeated every 2-3 years. Is that a good quality of life? My personal choice is to do this one time only. Just my 2 cents worth.
