Will everything stay in place after the hysterectomy (bladder, etc)?

Dr. seems to think I'll have no problems after surgery...he's so optimistic!

I just read that hysterectomy can cause prolapse, maybe not until years later. They specifically talked about the bladder falling. Then there's vaginal vault prolapse.

Does anyone have any knowledge about these things?

Re: Will everything stay in place after the hysterectomy (bladder, etc)?

Well, I am 11 years post hysterectomy I have no prolapse issues. My mom is over 20 years out and she is fine as well, though she is having a little trouble with the sling she had put in when she had her hysterectomy.

My only risk factors are having had two vaginal births (though they were not large babies and the episiotomy with the first could actually have decreased my prolapse risk) and the hysterectomy. My mom's risk factors have increased as she is older, has gained some weight, and is in menopause, besides having had more vaginal births, some with high birth weight babies and one being rather traumatic with tears (me ).

Generally speaking, a surgeon will tact everything during a hysterectomy to try to prevent any future prolapse issues.

Other risk factors women should consider regardless of whether or not they have had a hysterectomy include genetics--did other women in the family have prolapse issues?, being overweight, doing heavy lifting, hormonal issues, age, prior surgeries, and childbirth.
