Bladder suspension

I had my tah on 7/17/02 and I also had a bladder suspension. I am not sure I understand the difference of a bladder suspension and a bladder sling. I know it's late to find this out now, but when I was seeing my doctor she explained that the bladder suspension was tacking my bladder up to the Cooper's ligament. Then she said she had to do some reconstruction on the pelvic floor. After reading all the different posts I'm not sure now what I've had done! Can someone clue me in? Also, I am so afraid that I'm going to pull out the stitches and cause my bladder to drop. Are they that delicate?

Thanks, Josie

Bladder suspension

Hi Josie!

I'm afraid I can't answer your question for sure, but even though the bladder itself is pretty delicate, I don't think the repair work could be so delicate that you would have to worry about bladder prolapse --- but it's a great question for your DR, since she is more familiar with your specific procedures.

There are some pelvic floor exercises that are found from the home page pull-down menus:

The pelvic floor exercises (#2) can help strengthen the muscles that help hold everything in place.

I hope this helps!

I had a bladder sling done

Dear Yummie.
I had a bladder sling done on 6/17/02, they used a piece of cadavar skin to sling around my bladder and attached it (screwed it to) my pubic bone.
I don't know much about a suspension.
